Default Fran at home, 26 October 2010

Right off the bat, both Fran and I are so thankful for all of your concern and wishes.

Her condition has not improved since I brought my bride home Sunday, her biggest complaint being she can't breathe comfortably. She has an appointment with her Oncologist tomorrow and possibly he'll arrange another transfusion. It just tears me up to watch her sit there actually for lack of a better term, gasping. It reminds me of that asthma commercial on TV. Nevertheless she is so happy to be home and able to sleep in her own bed.

She is forcing herself to get up and get out of bed although she has no stamina whatsoever. My only concern is that she not push too hard. Hopefully something will take hold and she'll start improving. Her coming home has in any event, provided a quite necessary catharsis.

Now that I'm home I should be able to keep everyone abreast of developments even if it won't be as often as I normally do were we both to not only be home but in good health.

Please accept my sincerest apologies for not keeping up with all of the goings on of my beloved cruisemates although I'm sure you understand why I can't as yet do so. Hopefully the situation will soon improve in the near future and I'll get my "computer routine" back. In any event, I'll check out the threads as my situation allows.

Prayers continue for all of those on the list accompanied by prayerful thanks for your unparalleled support.

Love to all,

TDH (and his faithful companion, Fran)

Todd, You and Fran are in my prayer every day. You need to care of yourself as well.

So nice to know that you are both home, and Fran is comfortable in her own bed - nothing like one's own bed!
Hoping for continued improvement for Fran, and some more rest for yourself.
Check in when you can, we'll be here, waiting to hear.....

Todd, I'll just reach out my long arm through the ol' 'puter and give both of you a hug and say that I sincerely hope and pray that things get better for both of you.
We too have had a very hard and trying summer --just keep the faith and be positive.
