It's been great to be out of the hospital and to be able to enjoy this freedom (of not being hooked to IVs & beds) and most of all this unusually warm spring weather!
I love my little neighborhood in West San Jose where I am able to go on a short walk with my beautiful sweet dog across the street to what I ever I may need. Sometimes I will take Miss Blue Belle across the street over to Starbuck's where she sits just outside awaiting my return so patiently.
She knows and people around are amazed at her beauty and how good she is to just sit there outside and wait for me patiently. I then went inside to order my husband a coffee (I get a chai tea) and then as I am walking outside I notice this large brave soldier all dressed in his military camouflage. He is so young as I feel he is young enough to be my own son so I felt his presence to be that of an angel. He appears to be enjoying every second of love that Blue Belle has to give him and then he kindly thanks me for the moment and walks inside to get his coffee. I felt incredibly patriotic that my dog was able to cheer up that young soldier before he leaves for where he needs to go.
I wished I had brought along my camera because that was a very magical moment. I know for a fact this soldier would not have minded getting his photo shot! She was providing the neighborhood a service. Love to a soldier! I hope I see that soldier again and am provided that opportunity. I realize how nice it is to be out of the hospital just to enjoy little moments such as these!
We walked home and then noticed this bouquet of flowers just outside my door! What a beautiful bouquet! The love that's around me! Here is a collection of all the flowers I have received since being in the hospital. I hope I can keep the plant ones alive!
My days have been consisting of getting outside to get a few errands completed here and there and I was even able to go to the hospital to get my disability papers filed. Oh, that again!
It's just for a couple of hours and then I got to go home to sleep a few hours more!) I'm getting the rest I need and of course being able to go outside and enjoy the bright sunshine!) The journey of healing!)
