A Good Weekend

Sunday 10:15 p.m.

So, the return to the hospital was tough for Alison-being home, although wonderful, was a bit of a tease. Visits from hometown friends though made Friday evening much better. Saturday began to give us a glimpse of our "old" Alison. She was feeling better but heard news that her stay at the hospital may be another week-that did not make her a happy camper. But then, visits from friends again made the evening much better. Alison even gave mom the "go ahead" to spend the night at home.

Today went well. Alison had a nice visit with her Godfather and then did some crafts. It was great to see her able to do something she enjoyed. We then had a special visit with John's mom, dad and sister. It was so nice of them to make that drive, once again, to Yale. We really enjoyed spending time with them. Although we feel that we get to know them a little better with each visit, we also feel like we're spending time with old friends. John seems to be doing well-he may be going back to school very soon. The evening closed with a surprise visit from three girls who are sisters in the UNH chapter of Alison's sorority. Although they do not know Aliosn, they came bearing presents, including a beautiful, handmade blanket, which represented Phi Sigma Sigma. Alison was very touched.

Dare we say-Alison really seemed to turn a corner this weekend. She seems to have begun a trip down the road to recovery. Let's pray that she is able to stay on course-the one that will soon lead to home.

Here's to a good week,
Karen and Joe


  1. So glad she is doing better. Prayers of good health will continue. Keep up the good work. Love always Aunt Sandi

  2. Think happy thoughts. Have a good nights rest.

  3. So happy to hear that the old Alison seems to be coming back. My prayers are always with you guys. See you tomorrow.


  4. Take a deep breath and look ahead. Glad to hear things are looking up. Sending lots of hugs.

  5. So it seems like all the prayers and support that are coming your way Alison are finally being heard. I guess all it really took was a conversation with the Pope and his prayers as well! I'm so glad you were able to spend Thanksgiving with your family! What a thankful time for all of you! You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers EVERY day! I have everything crossed that as your mother said, this could be the turning week to your recovery! I believe it is! :)

    Be well!!!
    Love, Cindy and Alyssa
