I'm home!

But I have to admit I was really well taken care of in the hospital. I had a room to myself and it had a huge window overlooking Fargo and Moorhead. The life flight helicopter landing pad was just off to the right of my room and it was fascinating watching it land and take off. It flies over our house in one of its flight paths and its really loud and makes us run outside and look up at it. Surprisingly it was much quieter from inside my hospital room.

My wound care nurse came to see me and said she notified Dr. Bouton but he was in surgery for the day. My research nurse came to see me, and I heard from others that tried to come see me. But Dr. Panwalkar beat everyone and when he said I could go home, my discharge came together pretty quickly. By noon, thanks to a ride from my friend Kim, I was walking through my front door.

I'd like to say I am 100% fine. But the elephant hasn't entirely left the room, or my chest. It may take a few days for the new meds to work and we may have to adjust things as we go. But, I feel much more comfortable in understanding what is going on with me. Plus I know I will see Dr. Panwalkar on Tuesday.

Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers.

I had a surprise visit from a friend last night who brought me some thoughtful gifts. Thank you Brenda! The one I wanted to share, that she knew would speak to me, is a verse she found with a stunning picture on a calendar.

"God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. " 1John 1:5

The photo is gorgeous, as is the whole calendar.

You all really know how to make my word shine brightly in my life!  Thanks for being such gifts to me!


  1. Vicky, a good blogger will always have her camera ready, just in case her room is situated next to a helicopter. :) Beautiful shots! And so glad that things are a little more even for you. Now, focus on the light, the light, the LIGHT! :)

  7. you look so tiny in that bed and your hair still looks wonderful

  8. So good to hear you are home and everything checks out. Sounds like your vagus nerve is triggering some discomfort.

    It's amazing how you can find the goodness and light in every situation . I believe that "light" or pure presence you recognize in all things is alive and intelligent and has the ability to consciously recognize itself in you as well. It's a two-way street and is magnified by your awareness and appreciation of its penetrating essence. It is the heart of healing.

  9. love light and peace dear one!


  10. Thanks for the many ways in which you let your light shine!

  11. I had to laugh as I read others comments, thinking what I was thinking, "This is one heck of a blogger, camera in the hospital?" LOL, awesome. Glad your home. The best to you.

  12. So glad that you're home and okay. You look very cute in that picture with your pretty smile :) Naturally gorgeous clearly!!!
