• 11/22/2010 Transplant plus 4 yrs plus 77 days!
    We are home from what is Bonnie's third trip to Boston docz since Aug 31 (Transplant anniversary). This week we are celebrating our 22 anniversary. Both of us are busy on the book and with grandparenting. Bonnie's left eye continues to heal the "defects" that probably resulted in an attack of graft-vs-host disease this summer. Her Boston surgeon put a piece a placenta on the cornea and stitched it shut the first week of Sept and again in October. Most of the October stitches have come off, but Bonnie is keeping it well gooped and taped shut in an effort to give it a couple of other weeks of rest to secure the healing. Daniel is the sick one these days with terrible hip pain and now a very bad case of the crud. And still we are happy and doing well. We had a wonderful time with the kiddos at Halloween. Bonnie made Halloween coloring books from their own past Halloween pictures (at They all came to hear Bonnie preach on the 21st; they are getting more and more accustomed to being in church and liking it more. We will be celebrating Thanksgiving at Jen's house with them and the other four grandparents. We loved seeing grandson Jackson and his mom, Dr. Deb in Boston. Jackson is quite the kindergartener and athlete these days. He's quite into playing chess. The book writing is squeezed in between doc and kiddo visits and church activities. We enjoy beautiful sunsets over the ocean every night.

Dear Bonnie and Daniel - Thinking of you every day. Mel Kelm asked me today for an update on how things are going. Bonnie, you are on his prayer list. On all our prayer lists.

The Institution was very festive -- Margaret Irwin and Kathy McAdams were both there, also many other faces I hadn't seen for awhile.

Miss you very much --- but you are doing the right thing to wait on the trip.

Dear Bonnie and Daniel,
Ian Montgomery's Institution was a very grand ceremony... more clergy than I've seen altogether in All Saints'; lots of vestments and incensements. The church was full - clergy occupied the first 2 rows all the way around, and the rows behind them pretty much filled with congregation. But I was most conscious of the absence of many friends, especially those I first connected with in my Covenant Groups. It was a melancholy occasion for me, thinking of former days and friends who have moved on... some, like you, who have moved away geographically; others who have moved away emotionally or spiritually. Transitions are always hard but I didn't anticipate this transition being hard in this way.
It's lovely seeing the pictures of the Meditation Garden on your blog. You may be happy to know that one of the Vestry's hopes for Buildings and Grounds this year is to open the Meditation Garden to the public during the day.
It means a lot to me, knowing that you intended to be there and that you were thinking of us. I was thinking of you and missing you.
Love, heather
