All Is Well

 We  made it home late yesterday afternoon.........with Zack. It is amazing at how no one stays in a hospital after serious surgeries these days! Even brain surgeries. We learned that brain surgery patients go home usually after 3 days.  The doctor felt that there was no need for us to stay in Dallas with Zack at the hotel, because he would heal better here at home. Zack was very much in agreement with that . LOL  He traveled well......and instead of sleeping all the way, he chatted more.  He is the same Zack we have always known........the surgery did no damage. He has a good while to heal and to recover, but so far , he is doing well.  We are so thankful! And we are thankful to you all for your thoughts, prayers, and comments of supportive words..........

from our hearts.............thank you

The hospital  itself was like an art gallery.  

The building was beautiful and each floor had it's walls covered with art from artists who donated their works .  
Along each piece was a bio telling about the artist and how they created their piece.  I spent some of my time walking the hallways looking at the images and reading about the artist. 

The drive to and from Dallas was nice.  We traveled through some of the prettiest countryside with large hills, foggy meadows with ponds and cattle grazing. 
Although Dallas was a busy and loud city .........as any other city.......to me it was still pretty.  The trees, the landscaped streets..even the tall buildings, had a charm to them.  I would not like to live there..........but I can see how one could find their own piece of heaven there..........they may have to work a bit harder at it. 
I had such a sense of relief and gratefulness leaving Dallas, when the 5 lane turned into the 2 lane and the skyscrapers turned into green pastures of grazing cattle.  It was so good to pull into our drive and to be home. And although, in Dallas,  we had a nice hotel and we slept well..........I  slept so much better last night in our own bed and the quiet of our house. 

I had left my tulips in my vintage shop to stay safe from harsh
wind and weather while I was away

They were just beginning to bloom
What a cheery welcome home I got 
when I found them all in full bloom
in different vibrant colors! 
 There have been so many storms across the county........
I hope this finds you 
enjoying pretty and peaceful weather.
Stay safe and happy

That is definitely good news. I am so glad he came through the surgery well. Isn't it amazing what can be done now? Nobody heals well and rests properly in a hospital - so good that he can be at home. -Jenn
