So Where Are We Now?

We're home. We're getting better. We're grateful for all the good wishes, and the care he got while in hospital, that's where we are.

It's been a few days; I simply haven't had the energy to post. Hell, I haven't even had the energy to answer the phone - and I apologize to folks who've called, who I've ignored. It's not you, it's me, and that's not a joke.

But I need to let folks know that Bob's home. They let him loose on Wednesday afternoon, which was good, because, with well over 70 hours without sleep, he was already starting to become a little untethered to the world. He was given a nebulizer, and a list of physical therapists, and sent home. I was told that he needed to have someone with him, if not at all times, then pretty damned close to it, so I took some vacation time; I'm off all this week, and I'll be sticking very close to him, you damn betcha.

He slept much of the next day and a half, which was all to the good. It was nice having him back on our planet, and the sleep also helped his healing process. He's still weak; today was the first day he wanted to go outside. We drove over to Jarvis Beach, one of the lovely little pocket beaches on Chicago's north side, but we were only there for about 5 minutes; that tired him out, so we got him home, and he's now having a nebulizer treatment, since his oxygen count was down to about 90 percent, That's not horrible, but it's not good, either.

Despite his weariness, he got out, and the sun is shining, and we're listening to some lovely mambo music, and I'll be making a quiche for Sunday supper, and so the day is, on the whole, very good.

And thank you, everyone, for all the good wishes you sent Bob's way. They were much appreciated and needed.

Summary: In which there are, at long last, endings and beginnings.
Author's Note: I couldn't get it done in a decade, but 11 years seemed to be the magic time period. Thank you to everyone who stuck with this ridiculously lengthy WIP; I hope it's been worth the wait, despite 11 years of changing writing style and prowess, and undoubtedly some messed up plot points. (Too many years, and too many chapters, and perhaps not enough careful reviewing by Your Humble Author, to blame for that last.)
Many thanks to those who helped me keep at it, and who helped in many different ways. Thank you to 
[personal profile] a_phoenixdragon [personal profile] editrx  and [personal profile] ljgeoff , and always, always, always, my Best Beloved, dr_whuh (aka [personal profile] buckaroobob ). You are the absolute best, and I love you more than cookies. 
And of course, thanks and love to everyone I wrote about: to Luisa, Filomena, Nico, Hilda, Salvha and Jao, to David, to Pau and Laowhra, even to Inverno and the elder Bohlver. Thanks, especially, to the Doctor, Rose, and Jack, the OT3 of my heart. What shall I
 do without this story of yours to tell?  
Finally, thank you to cathica, whose prompt all those years ago started this journey. She's an immensely talented writer and a lovely person, and this is all because of her. Thank you!
