February 19, 2008

Art came home today.
There is more comfort with his presence this time. We all feel this is where he needs to be.  
He's on crutches, not a walker.
He's not all chemoed out. 
He has enough energy to sit on the couch for 20 minutes.
He can talk to the kids without loosing focus.
We had a small birthday celebration when he got home with a cake, a gift Judye Hendlish of Judye Sugar and Spice. ( have to have one of her cakes!!!! She just got a mention in InStyle Magazine too!)
Barbara our neighbor joined us.  
It was exactly what it needed to be.  
He is home and I am glad.
Normalcy, cancer normalcy, is right around the corner. 
I can taste it.  I can almost see it.  I can feel it.  
Its like the evening before the first really spring day. 
It makes me smile.
