Good medicine

There have been a few times, writing this blog, where I feel like, there. I’ve said it. There is no more I could add that might not somehow detract by distracting from that, I should just flip off the light and hang the “Closed” sign on the door: I’m done. That last post was one of those for me. As were the posts in mid-October about Robert’s medicine blanket (which is another emotional link to Native Americans for me) and about seeing Noel at Stanford Hospital again.

But life has a habit of simply continuing, and of being perfectly ordinary most of the time. Thank goodness for that, too.

That tall skinny kid of mine whose picture I posted recently? I just booked his plane ticket home from the university for his pre-op. They think the tumor is benign, but the sooner it’s out of there and biopsied, the happier we’ll all be.

Robert, when you read this, please know that I am wrapping your blanket around that boy of mine the second he walks in the door Saturday.

And he’ll be fine.

Oh, Alison. My heart goes out to you, my friend. I’ll be praying for you, and that tall skinny kid o’ yours.

Thank you all; very much appreciated. Hey, I’ll get to listen to his incredible piano playing without having to wait for a semester break, and my piano tuner, an old friend, dropped everything on the spot to come help make it sound perfect for him (blessings on that good man!)

Thank you. I get to SEE him tomorrow! But you know–when women hurt midsection, they can wear a loose dress till it heals. What can a guy do, besides bathrobes and nightshirts? I suppose overalls, only, is there a pair in the world designed for a 6’9″er? (And would he wear them if there were?!)

drawstring trousers that hang on the hips? Depends on where his “owie” is, of course. Keep us posted, please
