I just read all the comments. There are not words to express my feelings right now. (Yes, I'm speechless.) It meant so much to my family to hear from you, cheering me away from the edge. It worked!!!
Everything is going great: I lifted a bottle of Clorox over my head today. When I got home, I couldn't wash my hair unless I bent over and got my head to hand level… I could barely raise my hand to touch my head! Combing my hair was an effort.
I'm walking up and down the stairs, rarely use the oxygen. Still got the hobble and out of breath a lot. But, man, oh, man, things are going just great. I drove Mo to a party the other day, using the clutch. That was an accomplishment. And yesterday, I visited some friends for a bit. It's so lovely to go outside!
More soon. I really wanted to say thank you all. Very powerful, your thoughts, prayers, blessings, finger-crossings and love. Thank you.
Thanks for the update. Again, I am just so glad you’re feeling better! One day at a time, right? Like the blooming landscape (thanks, rainy season), you’re getting healthier bit by bit! Have you made it onto FB yet, or is that still too much?
Haven’t been to FB yet… been everywhere else, though. FB this weekend! Thanks, Erin.
Uh oh, you’re not trying to wash your hair with Clorox, are you?? 🙂 (That was my first thought on reading paragraph 2.)
I’ve followed your blog since spending a few months in Costa Rica in 2007. So glad that you are on the mend.
So happy you are back! There’s no place like home, huh? Missed ya!
So glad you are back and well. My first thought when reading your post was that you were pouring cloro on your head. Your a funny girl. We have missed your always cheerful, powerful voice.
Keep up the good health. Now, back to work. No more lolly-gagging; there’s too much real estate to be involved with.
A lift of my coffee mug to our amazing warrior in a grand toast in her precious honor: “To OUR Mrs Sally the Saratica of Triumphant Obstacle Jumping. She lept over deep abyss, floated in heavenly bliss, now raising her voice in praise and arms for hair cleanliness, and hobbling gratefully on terra firma! here here to Sally!”

Terrific News! Please keep posting so we can know of your progress.
Hola I had been off line for awhile and came across the message of your recent illness. What a strong and wonderful lady you are. Always enjoy everything you write. So happy you are doing better. If you need anything please email me and let me know what I can do. Much love and warmth. Debora Edholm
Thank you, Deborah. All good here, recovering and getting stronger everyday!
Sally, We will continue sending Positive Vibrations your way all the way from Ole StL. I was also thinking of you while driving through Woodford County, KY almost 2 months ago. I don’t seem to ever enter Kentucky w/o you coming to mind. Keep well, stay strong and our best regards to you and yours . . . .
Thank you, Brian. Keep ’em coming! Love to you and yours, S.
