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.
