    Sounds like you feel like I did when I posted...a diary in July called another name for Hero is Kossacks.   The people on this site spend a lot of energy and time wanting to make things better, not just for their own lives but every child,  man and woman in America.  They are patriots in the truest since of the word.  They plug in and log on and share their minds, money, energies and talent to honor the part of the consitution that says in order to form a more perfect union.

    This is precisley how people should view their fellow Americans daily ( those with sense to want to have a nation to be proud of) and to move forward in our education, music, arts, trasnportation, science, medicine, technology and the list is endless.

    I hope and pray Leaves is much better and we really mean it when we say : We are are sending light.
    God Bless.

    •  we came home last night (18+ / 0-)

      6 days and about an hour since we entered the hospital for what we thought would be a routine MRI.

      She is resting in the hospital bed we installed in the room that has the tv, which has a separate bathroom with a shower right off it and which is next to the kitchen.   If she wants and has her back brace on, she can get up and do things for herself.

      She cannot really be left alone, even with the back brace on, for at least another 10 days or so.  Two friends from my Quaker Meeting will split three hours of coverage tomorrow so I can get to a couple of dental appointments.  As it happens, I have known one for 50 years - he was my freshman roommate in Sept '63.

      Her spirits are good.

      She has not yet read all the comments on my 6 diaries related to her although I have shared some.  Nor has she read the 300 some odd emails, the several dozen kos mails, or the several cards and letters that have come in.  That is something she will begin to do tomorrow.

      Today we are cleaning and clearing - we are going through accumulations of stuff - old magazines, mail, papers, etc - and throwing out what we can to make the house less cluttered.  We are taking the piles of books that have accumulated in the dining room the room where she is and the living room and stacking them on the stairs.  When I saw "we" of course I am doing the physical work but we are going through things together.

      There's a lot of stuff we thought we needed we now know we do not.   And to the trash and recycling it goes - so far 5 big paper backs and two kitchen-trash sized plastic bags.

    •  Where Else Would I Go... (4+ / 0-)

      To find a Diverse Community of caring knowledgable people...

      Where we can diaries on common sense politics and have meaningful discussions, read Rich Holtzin's Diaries on the Colorado Plateau and Colorado River, read Major Kong's Diaries on Flying, read Cassandra Carolina's hilariously funny Dinosaur Extinction Updates or, jump to aid a fellow member in distress...

      And of course conspire to win a Presidential Election, maintain and build control of the Senate, and take back the House, against a disorganized and confused 47% who like to shoot themselves in the foot.

      It's nice to be able to rub elbows with a crowd that isn't hooked on a bunch of dead ideas, like Merica, My 2nd Amendment Rights, Roe V. Wade, Border Fences, Trickle Down Economics, Corporations are People, Job Creators, Faux News...
