First outing....Walmart! (parking lot)

There are many souvenirs of our adventure last week. This handy-dandy drinking cup from the hospital, which was invaluable when he was there. It's losing it's novelty here at home, but we have other cups....

The flowers behind the cup settling in next to the Christmas Poinsettia.

Many cards and food from family and friends.

THIS ring was around my neck. If Mr. Downeastdoingstuff couldn't wear it, (for the first time since we were married) then I was going to wear it. And I did. Along with the heart locket he gave me a long time ago. (which houses a photo of my son when he was little, and it used to have a picture of Mr. Downeastdoingstuff at one time, but he fell out....)


Today he got to put it back on. So now when he hugs the heart pillow the hospital gave him to use when coughing or sneezing, the ring is in its rightful place. Amen.

And all is right with the world again, right?! I love your photos here and that ring is very nice...

Glad Mr. DEDS is getting out and about....today was sunny here, it was hard to NOT go out. SO I gave in and went out and thoroughly enjoyed the warmth (30 degrees!!!) and sunshine!
XOXO

That heart is almost as big as the real one beating nicely away in Birdman's chest. Mr. Brattcat sends his fondest get-well-quick wishes.

Hurray for an outing. Hurray for that wonderful heart pillow. Hurray for the ring on your ribbon. Hurray for the ring back home where it belongs. Hurray for hurrays - so glad he is able to get out so soon. Don's first outing was a week after getting home - to go to the clinic for coumadin check.

whew.... had to fast track to the top posting.....

I'm so glad all is well and he is looking and feeling much better. The heart pillow is a great idea for the ribs hurting when coughing. I'll have to remember that one. I have some damaged tissue over some ribs on my left side and every so often...they get torn or wrecked again and man, it hurts to sneeze or cough. Next time will see me hugging a pillow!

I'm so happy for the two of you Elenka... thanks for stopping by my blog in the mids of all you are going through....hugs to you....
