August 3rd, 2012, 04:38 AM
Today the sun is out and it looks like it is going to be a wonderful day.
I have to work..........:( but my mind is full of great ideas for the back of Douwe's quilt....... it has to wait till tomorrow.......

For Douwe it is a great day: He can go home!!!!!!!!
After 11 weeks all alone in a small isolated room he can go home go regain his strenght and go back to the hospital august 22nd for the preparing for the transplant!!!!!!! He has to go in more often but that is just a visit and blood, but admited he will be in the end of august.
Yesterday he was for the first time out of his room sitting in the livingroom at the hospital with his wife and girls. The youngest said: "Dad you are so tall...........you look sooooooooo tall I can't believe I forgot that"
That was funny!
He also went outside in a wheelchair and he loved it!
So it is a very special day today, I hope and pray he will be this way as he is now, things change so fast I've learned over the pas months..........

So this is today, and today is a good day!

Now I have to hurry to the salon and make women pretty.......... ;)

Have a great day my dear quilter friends!!!!!!

:) Happy to hear the joy in your voice.

Tell Douwe and family to enjoy the time at home, to eat some good food, rest without nurses poking you and waking you up every couple of hours. :)

And you Missy! Rest as well, you need to take care of yourself to get ready for the next phase of this marathon.

Prayers and huggers, Ruby and Don

What a wonderful day for Douwe and the family. Going through an ordeal like this teaches us to live one day at a time and to squeeze all the joy, hope and love from each day! Please take care of yourself, Klasien. Have you begun to put Douwe's quilt together yet? Have a great day....Hugs, Barb

Such good news. One day at a time!

So good to hear that Douwe can have some time away from the hospital. Nothing restores you like being home with your Spouse and Children. This will also give him the advantage to stay healthy. Nothing like your kids to keep your spirits up. Prayers are still being said to keep him healthy and to make him strong for the next round. Hugs, Jan L.

Hugs, Love, and Blessings for you and your dear Brother,and family,
