1st day home

karyn is doing good, she’s getting adjusted to being back home for her recovery…
i mentioned to one of my friends that the hardest part will be not doing things herself, she’s always so active and at the center of all of our activities – she just won’t be able to do that for the next [...]

back home – ya

she’s glad to be home, still groggy and in pain but w/ her boys and dogs…
she’s got a long road to full recovery ahead of her – but lots of folks to help, and we’re thankful for that

karyn is going home :)

ya – we just found out that she can go home later today…

she had a rough night

she didn’t sleep well and is still pretty uncomfortable today – though she is sleeping now…
