Home Sweet Home

Last night, we flew back to Dallas. Sue and Carl drove back their car and ours so we could fly. It is so refreshing to be back home. I am thankful at so many levels. Still dominating my thoughts is how great it feels to be on the other side of that epidural-less hour. I still have pain now, but knowing what pain can be makes it easy to be thankful.


Looking back, when I left for Houston, there were so many things possible. And so many of them were difficult to contemplate. There was even the chance I had to be somewhat prepared for that I would not come back. And now here I am only a week later and on the quick path back to health.

I am on a couple different narcotics each day, so am not permitted to drive. I'll be just sitting here at home except when I'm not out taking one of my required walks. Being at home, though, is a good thing.

Here I am with Sir Koff-A-Lot and the other little one I hug to make me feel better (my other hug-when-hurting friend is taking the picture!). Can a guy be surrounded with more love?

Greg, we are so glad you are home and you look great. I think that little bear is helping.

Debbie and I are so thankful for your recovery. Our hearts are filled with joy to see you home again. We hope that you and Christine can enjoy every moment together The Lord is blessing you with. Every moment we all have to share with eachother in this world is such a blessing. None of us knows when each passing day will be our last, and so we have this moment right in front of us, right now - to tell eachother how much we care about eachother and be thankful for the family and friends that God has so richly blessed us with. We are overjoyed with the news of your recovery and return home! Please give that lovely wife of yours a great big hug!! You and Christine are in our prayers!! Welcome home!!
John and Debbie

Now I wish to inflict real pain into your comfortable life - the life of one so imbued with Texas expectation and success.
The EAGLES are in- the COWBOYS are out!
Dallas gets what is deserves - humiliation.
There will never be a time of reconciliation between us enemies of gridiron difference - we are thankful that we are not called upon in scripture to be generous to the likes of your ignorant and fanatic football fools. Even the dreaded GIANTS are to be claimed as brothers before the COW-GIRLS. And those awful new blue and white shouldered uniforms -only sissies wear them!
