Tom is still in recovery, but they’ll be moving him soon. I’m so anxious to see him.
We didn’t have to check in until 8 a.m. so we were able to get up at a normal time. Groot was not thrilled her people were getting up and she moved and went back to sleep in the funniest position:
Before we left, I got this magical gem of a picture:
Here we are at check-in:
And here we are right before they took him away to relieve him of his kidney and tumor:
And I didn’t realize my mask was on upside down until way later 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️
The Buffett Cancer Center has this beautiful garden area, and that’s where I hung out until they came to tell me his surgery was finishing up. It’s a beautiful day (although there’s a chilly wind), and here’s where I got to hang:
Being able to be outside in such a beautiful garden was such a gift. It really helped my anxiety.
That’s about all from this neck of the woods. Thank you all for the prayers and good vibes.
Ever since I got married, I’ve wanted to grow some of our food. Unfortunately, my thumb is pretty brown. Which means that my efforts over the last two springs were quite pathetic. I think I successfully grew a single green bean and one tiny tomato. After this past spring, I shelved my dreams of growing food. Then, about a month ago the boy was playing a podcast and they were discussing various gardening options. (Know How)
So, I’m not shelving that dream quite yet. Let me introduce you to the beginning of my new garden.
These are the smallest Aero Garden units you can get. I’m using the red to grow salad greens, and the blue to grow herbs. I’m so excited about this. No dirt to mess with, which I am perfectly fine with. Plus, I can do all of this inside, avoiding sunburn and bug bites.
If this first round goes well, I’m planning to get more units so I can grow berries, peppers, tomatoes, and other awesome foods!
