Yesterday flew by fast. We had our last breakfast at the Residence Inn, did our final packing up, watched our last episode of The West Wing, (A friend of Suzanne’s loaned us the complete 7 season DVD set) spent time with Gay and Roger, and went to the airport. Scott and Suzanne handled my bags. We tried to get a pass for Suzanne to walk me to the gate but they wouldn’t give us one. They called a wheelchair for me instead. I felt a little silly. I mean. I can walk! But when he wheeled me to the front of the security line, took my shoes and coat and bag and put it all through for me, had me simply walk through the detector and then sit on a bench until he was finished, and then handed me back all my stuff I was sold. And of course my gate was the absolute furthest possible so I was thankful for the ride.
The flight was uneventful and Rick, Meagan, and Mark were waiting for me at the gate. Apparently RDU is more accommodating than O’Hare!
It was so wonderful to be with my family! And I even came home to a clipped and groomed dog, a clean house, beautiful flowers and cards and the most beautiful enormous basket full of gourmet snacks, lotions, notecards, restaurant gift cards, candles, etc from our wonderful Crossroads Sunday School Class. Seriously, you’ve got to see this thing! Each thing was wrapped individually. The picture won’t do it justice!
Today I slept clean through my alarm. the kids managed to get to school without my help. (Sadly I guess they are used to it by now!) I went to Chapel at Trinity where the wonderful Sam Jackson told our story through our blogs and made the gospel come alive for the Upper School students. Then some friends came over for lunch and a visit. We had yet another wonderful meal delivered and now we are about to watch the Duke game. I’m tired but fine. And so very thankful for my wonderful friends and all the love and support you have given me and my family!
Gay continues to improve daily. Here are our latest pictures from yesterday. She looks magnificent!

Love you All!
