No, I haven't quit blogging nor fallen off the face of the Earth, although believe me, it sure feels like it sometimes. This past week we have been sitting vigil at the hospital bedside of our dear friend Ernest. He is my "Most Unforgettable Character"... still working full time at nearly 80 years old and going strong until this terrible car accident which left him nearly paralyzed with a broken back, broken neck, shook-up brains and fighting pneumonia. Anyway, to make a long story short - there is some relief in the picture as today; he actually walked a step or two. Miracles still do happen Mabel...
We finally felt as though we could leave him yesterday for the first time in over a week - and after driving all day we came home and collapsed. Unfortunately, seems like my Bear caught THE FLU BUG FROM HELL and is upstairs with his tummy turned inside out all day today :(
For those of you that were aware - I thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. They worked a miracle. Ernest has a ways yet to go, but he is a man like no other and if anyone can pull off this recovery, he can.
Life is short - don't forget the magic.
