• 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.

Judy and Tim Maloney

So beautifully said. Our words do create our world - thank you for presencing what I/we so share in our experience of Bonnie....and Daniel Love Judy and Tim Maloney


I was fortunate to hear this in person and I am so happy to be able to read it again. I never knew this part of Bonnie's life. I am one lucky person to have known her!!!

Eric, Obviously you have found some of those great words right here, thank you. I was only at Interval for a very short time (Interval's last year), and while I did not work for Bonnie, I worked near her, and in that short time, I could see much of these things you mention become evident. She befriended me quickly, made me feel very much at home when I joined, was always a pleasure to just sit down with and have a chat about anything, and quick to be supportive when needed, or just an ear when bouncing out ideas. I know she will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. I will miss her as well, even if I did not have much contact these last years. I am sorry for that.

Thanks for this posting. It really gave me a warm feeling to read it.


To Daniel...thank you for posting Eric's words of love here.

To Eric....Can you help me connect with Lynn Miller??? I tried to find her in SF last fall at the Comm Convention but couldn't make it happen. She was a good friend in Austin 1980-82. Betsy Hall or 707-481-2130 or through Facebook??
