Housebound for a Month

So what does a person do when they're bed-ridden for a month? There is not much one can do, except:

1. Eat

2. Sleep

3. Pray

4. Read

5. Write

6. Surf the Internet

7. Watch TV

8. Watch and re-watch movies, lots of it.

Good, okay or bad, films make good company. It transports to another time and place, which is pretty cool especially for someone who isn't even allowed to go to the first floor of the house, unless it's on the way to go out to visit the doctor. Even George and Katy enjoyed them, barking and howling in reaction to some scenes, to our amusement, and giving me a sympathetic look, paw, or lick when they thought I needed it.

I am grateful for the people who took the time to visit, send flowers/gifts, bring food, send a note/message/text and call. It really brightened an otherwise mundane day. It means a lot. I will always remember those who remembered. Always. You know who you are. Thank you so much.

Eternal gratitude goes to my Mother-in-Law who took time out of her life to help take care of me, as well as my two Sisters-in-Law, and of course to my Husband whom I thought couldn't be any more gentle and caring until the circumstances of the past few weeks. I love you.
