Coming Home

My sweet baboo is coming home tomorrow morning! He has gotten so much stronger and steadier, thanks to the daily therapy. And the once-upon-a-time, terrible pain in his right hip is gone. It’s history. Thank goodness for modern medicine! 

I joined him for his last lunch at the rehab facility earlier today. Tonight, I’ll keep him company during his last dinner there. I dropped off some duffle bags in his room so that he can pack up tonight. It is bittersweet for him to say goodbye to the kind staff that have taken such good care of him. He’s gotten quite a few hugs. They will miss him and his cheerful spirit. 

Ah, but their loss is my gain! It’s been incredibly quiet around the cottage for the past three and a half weeks, and I am ready for my man to come back home. We’re both anxious to resume our normal lives.

And as the calendar gets replaced on Sunday, we’re ready to start planning more traveling adventures in 2012!


  1. This all such good news! Blessings as you change the calender! :)

  2. OH!!! I KNOW you're Excited Girlfriend! It's nice to spend a few days away but NOT 3 1/2 Weeks!Hahaa.
    Enjoy your time together this weekend making all those wonderful traveling plans! Where are we going Next? Quebec City? Germany? Austria? The Nile???Hahaa...
    I'm packed and ready to go!
    Happy New Year dear friend!

  3. Oh yay! He has been such a good sport having Christmas away from home recuperating. I'm glad that he'll have New Year's Eve and Day right there with you at The Cottage. So happy also to know that the pain is gone. Sweet relief I am sure!

  4. Yay! I'm sure you'll be glad to be back to normal. Glad he's feeling better. Can't wait for your new adventures.

  5. Welcome home to your Baboo, it's probably really weird being alone. Good to know the pain is gone, and the traveling can resume.

  6. Glad hubby is doing well enough to come home. Three weeks is a long time, Can't wait to hear what adventures you have coming up!

  7. What good news for Grey Havens! Its good master returns! And his lovely lady won't have to shoulder the burden alone anymore. I'm so glad. Please give your sweet baboo my love and regards, and best wishes to all for a splendid 2012!

  8. And that sounds like a perfect ending to this year. Great news and Happy New Year to you and your husband
