Great Weekend

This weekend has been really really nice. Shawn was discharged home on Friday following his bronch. Everything looked great and he was still open, infection resolving and no signs of rejection.
So late Friday afternoon I took my husband home !!!

Friday night we went out for a ride, met up with some friends, and had dinner. When we got home, Shawn's surgeon called. I didn't get to speak to him after the bronch, it was the first time and it left me fairly unsettled. I was so relieved to hear from him. His voice is very soothing, my own personal valium.

Saturday was another great day, I felt creative and was productive. Shawn slept in until 2 in the afternoon, well deserved rest after a week in the hospital. In the afternoon I met my dear friends and neighbors for a walk on the beach.
Saturday night we went to a party and that was a really good time too. Just shooting the shit, laughing, trading stories, enjoying some good music, good drinks and good friends. The ride home was sweet and romantic.

Sunday I slept in and that afternoon we all went to a barbecue.

This morning we all got up and went out for breakfast. Went for a ride on the bike and then Shawn and Sara went out together. While they were out I completed another seaglass and seapottery piece, while sitting on my deck with the gorgeous sunshine beating down on me.

When they got home we sat together and had dinner.

Life is so good. This Wednesday is Shawn's official six month transplant anniversary. I am happily surprised everyday with the simplicity and the complexity of our lives.
I am so grateful for everyday. I am grateful to Shawn's Team and so very grateful to his donor.

Wow Tina! I can feel the joy from here. Seriously. Sounds like an excellent weekend for you guys. Love it.

I just now noticed your boston terrior pict on the side. How funny! Teddy bear stuffing all over the place. Our lab has a large teddy bear like that too, and as love would have it - it miraculously still has all it's limbs. Something is very special about a toy that gets to keep its limbs.
