• 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.

Good to locate you in time and space. Time for an update from Daniel I think?
Passover Blessings. Lent blessings. High holy season for so many around the globe. Love, betsy


Easter Blessing Bonnie and Daniel and to all who visit here. betsy


So glad you are doing so well and able to enjoy traveling.

Hey Bonnie,
I was clearing out Bookmarks and found the BONNIE UPDATE. It is wonderful to hear how you are doing. And, fun to hear your remembrance of executive consulting travel days. I still do it, but damn it -- I wear jeans instead of pin stripes. The heck with looking the part. I am who I am and it is what it is, eh?

Happy Mother's Day. We are visiting our kids and grandkids next week back in DC -- can't wait.

And, Major heard from Daniel that you will be on the west coast. Let us know when and where. We would love to have you here or to come to you. Much, much love, Lexy

Dear Bonnie and Daniel,
What an extraordinary website! I was searching the terms "Bright Sunday" to research an article for our church's newsletter the "Chimes" here in Golden, Colordo when I came across your website and read about your "medical and spiritual adventures." I also, read your the Bright Sunday sermon you gave "to introduce the Bright Sunday practice to others at EDS. Your call: "Who can you tell?" inspired me to send you a message of gratitude for your beautiful and meaningful writing. There are a number of people at Rockland Community Church who will also be grateful to hear about you and your spirit-filled outlook on life.
With Sincerest Thanks,
Robin Black, your sister in Christ

Hola friend - may you and your beloved ones flourish in this season of new life. See you soon in New Hampshire I hope - susan


Time for your travel fast approaches. Must be so much to do to get ready. Looking forward to seeing you this summer. Maybe I can come down for some Palo Alto adventure. Hoping infections are down and health is up and that you are moving a lot but using the best of judgement and pre-caution. Prayers for the books constant flow forward with ease and light. love and blessings, betsy


Hoping for a monthly update soon. Seems better to ask here than to take up your time with personal request. love you, betts
