Belle Update

Belle gets out of the hospital tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m.  I've been running all day, coordinating with medical personnel, making sure I have all the equipment she will need, getting prescriptions filled, just generally  truing to cover all the bases.

Now, it's time to pour a drink and take a deep breath.  

What has amazed me about this whole process is how quickly your life can change at the turn of the minute hand on a clock.  One minute everything is rosy, the next minute we're in hurry-up mode.

A friend of Belle's asked if I freaked out when I realized that she was hut.  No, not really.  I was a cop for 37 years and had done lots of medical emergencies. I reverted to cop mode.  I know how to call an ambulance and prep the area for a gurney.  We had time to pack a small bag with the things she would need, and to move the vehicles so that the ambulance crew had un-obstructed access.

But, she is coming home tomorrow and things will change again, until she is 100%.  I love that woman will all of my heart and soul.  I can't imagine my life without her.

We'll add her to our prayer list. Glad the news is good. Hang in there.

Every day millions of men roll up their sleeves and do what needs to be done with no trumpets, "likes" or media attention. You are one of them.

My hat is off to you and your peers.

You are all heroes.

Good to hear things are progressing. Hopefully things will get back to "normal"-ish sooner rather than later.
