The worse part of the whole stay was not having the dogs and my husband by my side. It was extremely haunting at bedtime when I am used to having at least one dog or two smooched up up against me or laying on top of my legs. But that was nothing compare to not having that added security of protection that all the dogs provide. The staff made daily rounds all night long to check if you are asleep or awake adding to my already fragile fears of being ALONE. And while I needed the respite it was like being on a completely different planet with no dogs, no cats, no duck and no husband. Not a world I ever want to enter into again. Thank goodness the staff and doctor were so wonderful or I don't think I would have pulled through so quickly. It's been over ten years since I've been hospitalized and not something I care to do again if I can at help it.
It is so great to be home and back where I belong with all my kids and the love of my life. Not to mention being part of this wonderful community that you have all shown to be in so many ways. I wish I could take the time to thank all of you personally for your kindness, but I will just let the dogs show you...

p.s. Not the best footage, but you'll have to forgive Daddy when he's got the camcorder in his hand, he gets a bit crazy with it!! Need to teach him how to use a tripod!! :)
p.s.s. I've been reading and catching up with everyone while on the mend. Please forgive my "silent" comments as I continue to recover.
I'm so glad to hear that you are home and on the mend! My paws are crossed for your continued recovery! Have a good weekend!
Welcome home. We missed you too!
Don't you ever get a tripod for your husband. The shaky camera did much more to show us what it's like to live in a house with 24 Paws of Love.
Glad you felt the support you needed to take care of yourself. Even if you don't always feel like it, you need to make smart decisions about your own care so you can be there for your 4 legged and 2 legged family. Right?
Your hubby sounds pretty happy that you're home too! When my Mom was in the hospital last year ~ and then recovering at her daughter's house for 2 months, she said the hardest part of it ALL (including all her surgeries & everything!) was missing us dogs! We missed her something awful too.
So, I know just how happy your pack was to have you back home and I hope you never have to leave them again!
I sure am glad you are doing better and I can feel the happy!
It's good to know that you're doing better and out of the hospital. I'm sure it was absolutely wonderful to come home to all those wagging tails and happy faces :) Brut is so cute in this video, he's a beautiful boy. I hope all is well!
I am glad you are home with your pups and husband! Hope you continue to feel better!
Your pal, Pip
Really glad to hear you're home and on the mend. Deccy x
Welcome home. I am glad you are back at home surrounded by love:)
I hope you are resting well, it looks like you are in the best care possible:)))
Now that welcome home had to do wonders to make you feel better. We will be thinking of you as you take time to improve even more. No worries about comments on our part at all.

That's the best welcome home there is. I was just thinking about how you were doing the other day, so I'm really glad to hear you're home and feeling better.
Oh, and John Denver in the background singing "Rocky Mountain High" made your video absolutely perfect!
So glad you're back and feelin' better!
Y'all come by now,

So glad you are home again and recovering.
I'm so glad you are back home with your family! Continue to get better. :)
So glad you are back.
Get better ...and be gentle on yourself.

What an amazing welcome home...as if it would be anything else :).
Hospital stays aren't the greatest, but knowing you have a loving family anxiously awaiting your return was surely a joy.
Welcome home/back:) Daddy did a great job looking after the kids while you were in hospital! What a wonderful idea to video your homecoming welcome. It was lovely to see. Take care of yourself as well as the pups. They need you:)
Welcome back! I am glad to hear that you're feeling better.
It is hard to be away from the whole family, I know. I find it difficult to do overnight stays because I miss them so much.
I think that it makes you appreciate them that much more, though!
So glad you're back home and on the mend. Hospitals that don't allow dog visitors are no place for dog lovers!
