Ken's Progress

So, here i am blogging. I kind of, really, very officially hate blogs. Maybe because I associate it with the people I love being sick. My sister, Gus, and now Ken. Yup, hate blogs. I know it's not rational, but I do. Surgery is done. He's being moved to the neuro ICU. He's moving both sides, left is weaker. And he's saying his name. Dr. Ogilvie is "cautiously optimistic". Cautious optimism.

J and K - I know things are going to be fine. Just fine. You're in very good hands. I am SOOOOO happy and relieved. My tears of fear are now tears of joy. Wish I could be there so you could wipe them away in person. I look forward to hearing from you soon. That would be you 2nd-person plural. I love you both.

If I were able to, I'd send you all a big box of comfort right now. A huge boxful of scratchy/fuzzy sweater warmth that you feel when the snow drives hard against the window. I would send you laughter of children captured in mason jars. I would send you all that is right with the world. But as soon as I sent it to the post office, they told me I had to get a smaller box. I'm cautiously saying that the worst part is over, and I'm parsing out my love into smaller, more manageable shoe boxes.
