false alarm

Wait. I poured a mug o’coffee and now the rest is draining! YES! My day is looking brighter ‘cause caffeine is gonna hit my weary system. Breathing a BIG sigh o’relief. Please resume your regular programming…just a minor little overreaction. Me?! Ms. Short Fuse?! Yeah. It happens. Now, for that first sip of magical java brew to make it all better…or at least kick start me toward gettin’ ready for Sunday mornin’ church. Carry on and have a fab-u-lous day! Happy kitchen dancin’ here ‘cause my coffee pot works! ~ Janean

still standing

I’m breathing in crisp night air
while standing on the curb
just outside the hospital doors
waiting for the hotel shuttle
whisking me back
for my last night in Princess Room
if only I could see the moon
but alas, it’s too cloudy

Loyola hospital
near Chicago
northern Illinois

my heart hurts
I am breathing
I’m also standing
in a sunbeam
in the hallway of windows
just a few steps past
my husband’s hospital room
it’s quiet here
just the sound
of the heater running
that helps too
and stillness
no one is bustling about
I’ll go back…
in just a bit…
I am breathing

road trip

hittin’ the road

in an hour’s time

goin’ north again

to Chicago

not for sight seein’

for staple removal

it’s been two weeks

and a few days

post-op

already

hope the snow holds off

a little longer

and the wind isn’t too strong

sunshine would be nice

and blue skies

to say, “It’ll All Be OK”

from here on out

praying through it

and breathing

in and out

until then

goin’ on a road trip

a day trip

to Chicago
