Ahh ~ There's No Place Like Home for Real Comfort

So sorry to be gone for so long.  I have been so busy healing and
going to and from the hospital for treatments.  The good news is that
I am in REMISSION!    My treatments have been cut back to a
maintenance dose and I am feeling stronger day by day.  I am so
happy to be given a greater chance to enjoy life that I do not mind
sheltering at home.  

Little Oliver has been such a comfort and a blessing.  All of his
adorable little antics have brought such joy into our home once
again.  He will be five months old on August 2nd.  He's still teacup
sized ~ about 2 1/2 pounds, but full of boundless energy.

I have been enjoying fluffing the cottage once again.  It's amazing how
one misses everyday chores and the daily activities of living.  I 
really appreciate the simplest of things now. 

I have gained some weight which has made my doctors and nurses
very happy.  I am up to 95 pounds now.  I am happy with that weight
because it is my "normal" and so much better than the 78 pounds I was
just a few short months ago.  Now I won't blow away in a strong wind!

I am glad to be back.  I'll be filling you in on little Oliver's 
cute pics and stories soon.  Until next time,

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Oliver 


  1. Glad things are getting better for you. Bravo on the weight gain, that is great.

    1. When I was in rehab back in January trying to build strength to get ready for major surgery, my doctor played the theme from the movie Rocky every morning as encouragement to get stronger. That has lasted with me and I continue to remember it every day now!

  2. It's good to read that you are feeling better. Your little Oliver is so adorable and cuddly looking.

  3. Susan, I've been thinking about you. It's terrific to read your good news!!! I'm very happy for you, your husband, and little Oliver. Yes, the little things are the best things in life. May you continue to feel well and have a great week!
