It's a Good Day

Gulf of Mexico
Siesta Key 2012

There has been a lot of concern from my blogging friends about The Trout.  Things are going quite well.  After surgery, the surgeon changed his mind about keeping him in the hospital overnight, so I got to bring him home.  He has been resting and doing quite well pain-wise.  It will be a couple of weeks until the staples are removed and then we can start thinking about heading out of Florida for the summer.

Both of us thank all of you for your good thoughts, prayers.  It certainly looks like the surgery was successful and we are grateful.

    Susan & Dale--I have been concerned about Dale's physical condition. Thanks for your positive post about him. He is fortunate to have you as his care-taker as he returns home. I am looking forward to seeing your updates about your experiences in Montana and Provence. I am thinking that i might be able to spend some time in Amana when I am home this summer
    for ail of my reunions in July. I know it is not possible but it would be great if you and Dale were in Amana at that time too. I hope I will be able to attend your special 50th year reunion since you and the rest of your class graduated.

  7. He didn't have to spend the night? I would say that's the best news you can get. Usually it's hard to escape from the hospital once they get their hands on you.

    Great news Susan and thanks so much for sharing it with us. Get well soon Trout! A cool summer is right around the corner for both of you.

  8. That is good news. Wishing him a speedy recovery.
    I thought that photo looked familiar...Siesta Key is 5 minutes from me, walking distance. Where are you now? We are here all year, but I have the summer's off from working at a school!

  13. Hi Susan, glad to hear of the good prognosis on the Trout. Now where will you be spending your summer? Hopefully somewhere cooler than Florida. I don't know how my sister in south Florida does it in the summer, oh I do; she's comes to visit me up North for a spell.

  26. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Trout! I haven't been here in awhile Susan, I didn't know. My son and his wife had their 5 th child 2 weeks ago, so I have been busy!

    Yes, we do learn to rearrange. Dh had a stroke at 53 so plans are always subject to health. We can't travel though.
    Hope your plans come about!
