I'm back in San Miguel! Got in earlier this evening and with very mixed feelings. I hated to leave Amanda, still in ICU, and Patrick who is driving back and forth from near Galveston to Houston on a daily basis, BUT I also needed to get home after being gone for 18 days.....I've always wished I could be in two places at once!
From emails I've gotten it sounds like more tubes have come out and that is good news for Amanda. It is a slow process. I would imagine that it will be May before she is home just thinking of how long she'll be at Hermann and then at TIRR (Texas Institute for Rehab and R something else (I don'tknow what the other R is for)........SO keep on sending all those positive thoughts.......PUH leez.
I have to confess the drive home was beautiful. GREEN! Once I turned off the highway and headed to San Miguel down the very narrow two lane road, the green fields were exquisite and breath taking. It's that green that is so intense that they use it in St. Patrick's Day decorations - it was so GREEN it made me want to take off my shoes, stop the car and run through whatever the crop is, barefooted. What crop could be that green? Asparagus? I have no idea.....
It's also WARM here - oh blessed warm.
It IS always nice to get home - I don't care where I go or what I do - I have a great time, but I"m ALWAYS happy to be home!
