18 January 2013 He's HOME!!!

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Arrival Picture

Ok, short blog. Yesterday was a very emotional day. Had testing done on Wednesday. Got a call yesterday that something was "wrong" and so had to schedule a repeat. OMG! Well, long story short, I got the testing done and all turned up well. BREATHE, BREATH, restart heart, repeat the process!

BEST of all, John is home! We picked him up last night. When he came down the gangway, someone offered to take a picture of us together. Here it is.

Wanted to share.

HUGS from one happy Mama!





The expression on my face is crying! Naturally. LOL

    How did I miss this?! Of course you were crying! I am tearing up looking at this beautiful picture of your beautiful family. PS Yes, I LOVE Beverly Cleary books. I don't know if you and Clara ever saw the movie made, based on Ramona and Beezus, but it is actually very charming and sweet. I worried that they would ruin it, but they did a nice job and it is a lovely movie for a rainy afternoon. I so enjoy my nightly forays, with Payton, back into that sweet and simple world in 1950's/60's Portland family life. My daughter Lexi lives in Portland so when I read the descriptions of the neighborhoods, it is easy for me to picture. PSS YAY for good test results.

    Okay girl I actually just had to count all these people you have endeared yourself to and with me that makes 50! 50 I think that makes you an official Spark Rockstar! I am so so happy for you all. I am really glad you had a picture taken of yall. Man you are one tiny woman especially next to your John. Barb I am so glad to see an updated picture you, tears and all. I am happy with tears that your retake on your mamo came out good. I go in tomorrow for the results on my biopsy. I'm sure everything is okay. How long do you get to have John home for? Is that your daughter, his girlfriend, his wife? Boy I am nosey ain't I . Hugs Susan
ps that picture should be on your spark page permanently, and please also Thank you Son for what he does for this country and down to the point that he does it for me and mine. I & Hubby are both from military families and we know the sacrifice he makes.

    Moments to treasure. Hubby & I thank him for his service more than words can say.

What an emotional week for you. I had one of those scares, too. I was beside myself. In my case the equipment was "too good". It showed things that were supposed to be there but they made me go through the same experience as you.
