  • 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 Crayola.com). 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.

Daniel, what you say about Bonnie living for her Grandchildren. Working with cancer patients who live long beyond their "expectancy"...this quality it the one single most factor---having something so powerful to live for not just "life itself" or "fear of death." I see it over and over. It's a hard one to talk about because if you do, it often gets MIS-interpreted that the opposite is true...that people who die don't have anything they care about or don't care enough. I don't think it's like that. love you guys, betsy

I'm writing from the other side of the world now---sasebo, Japan where I'll be well into the new year. Saw a friend on before I left who is making her journey to the next plane. It is a blessing to see this when one's work has been done and preparation has been made so that this to is part of the journey of life! Hope to get an update soon. Don't think we're heard if Bonnie had her surgery? if you are back in N.C. or? I send plessings from the east. love, betsy

It sounds like your need to fix the beach house is more than just for practical reasons. You're also coping up with the situation, and it's good to learn that everyone's well. It would be wonderful to see pictures of the renovation. Thank you for this inspiring story.
