I had written on Facebook, but I had not written here yet. My wife of 39 years (Cathy) tried to check out early on me last week. She had been in the hospital since a week ago Monday. We were told on Friday that if we had not gotten her in when we did, she would have died by the weekend. That's the bad news.
news is that after a vital surgical procedure done last Thursday night, the doctor was able to get her
condition (an extremely serious infection) under control. Whew! She finally got to come home last night after spending a week in the hospital, undergoing aggressive treatment.
The most important thing is,
that she is going to be okay. I am posting a few of my favorite pics of
her. Yes, they are older pics, but she is just as beautiful and even
more precious to me currently. A bit of a cliche, but yes, she is even more beautiful on the inside. I would be so lost without her. She is so
much more than my better half!
She has also been my biggest fan, and without her help and support over the years, I doubt that I would be doing what I'm doing (my childhood dream). It is going to be a bit of a long road yet for her to fully recover from all of this, but it looks like a full recovery will be the final outcome. Yes, I will have my hands full trying taking care of her, while still working full time building puppets, but that's the least I can do considering all that she has done for me for so many years. She is the love of my life.
I will try to get back to doing more posts on puppet related items soon I hope. Thanks for bearing with me posting about my personal life.
