In A Vase On Monday – Basket Of Cheer

As the week begins it is always fun to join Cathy for In A Vase On Monday, but I continue to be unable to tend the garden for now as I am tending to my husband.

Some of you will know from my last post he had back surgery in early January and was recovering in a rehab center.

It turned out the first surgery required correction so back into the hospital he went for a second one 10 days ago. Back in rehab now he is finding recovery smoother this time around, although still not fast enough for us.

Although I can see daphne and anemone beginning to flower, hellebores continuing to open and daffodils teasing with yellow-tinged buds, there is no time today to prepare a vase. Instead I would like to share a joyful basket my older sister sent last week to cheer us on. It has brought us many smiles.

    It’s a beautiful basket, Susie. I’m glad the doctors were able to discover and correct the problem with the first surgery relatively quickly. I wish your husband a speedy recovery and you the support you need to be there for him throughout this experience.

    Oh I’m so sorry that David had to have a second op. as the others have said at least they discovered the problem fairly quickly but I can imagine the frustration for you both to have to go through the whole process again. Thinking of you both and sending all my love.

    Oh Susie, I am so sorry. You know, I had thought about you as I passed your way recently, and wondered how you were doing. I hope you will have just a few minutes this coming weekend to sit outside as it is supposed to be beautiful. I don’t suppose you will be going to the meeting next Tuesday? I am trying to find time to go and will look for you there. All the best to you and your husband for a speedy recovery.
