Jenn came home yesterday.
Thank you all for your prayers. She is about 90% of her normal ways. She has basically had no exercise for a month, so even getting up to use the bathroom at night was exhausting. But it was nice to feel her warmth next to me in bed. And I'm sure that just being in the bosom of her family's love will go a long way toward completing her healing.
We were talking yesterday, and it seems clear that this has been, by far, the longest we have been apart in 40+ years of marriage. Back when I was volunteering at Summer Camp every summer, that was eight days at a time. A couple times, I went to visit my Mom in California by myself, for maybe a bit less than a week. But this was 17 days; and we were less than a mile apart.
The road ahead is still a long one. She'll be receiving IV antibiotics at home for another three weeks, and then checking back in for another set of X-rays, etc. while she rebuilds her strength and stamina.
But, My Beloved is home. I can't begin to tell you how good it is to have her back.
