Homeward bound it is!!!!

Tuesday, 11:30 a.m.

So, after a long night (Alison was having abdominal pain)we were unsure of what would happen today. Dr. Emre came in this morning though and still felt it was safe to go home. Alison is a bit nervous, she does not want to come back.! I told her that calm and positive thoughts are important. Karen, the massage therapist and reflexologist from The Dignity Project is here now. Her presence and skill are exactly what Alison needs. It is just remarkable how Alison feels after a session with Karen, hopefully we will be able to continue after discharge.

Joe will be here shortly-for the "big move". I think we accumulated more this time then last, of course, this hospitalization was a bit longer than the first.

We are all really looking forward to being at home together. Although, Alison still has a long way to go with tube feedings and ongoing follow up visits with many doctors, we are hopeful that the most difficult times are behind us.

Our thoughts now turn to Christmas, the most beautiful season of all. Alison is looking forward to making gifts for family and friends and we are both looking forward to baking cookies with Jen. Decorating the house and trimming the tree with all of us will be wonderful. We have so much to be grateful for and to look forward to. Please pray that she will feel better and better every day and be able to enjoy this new start to her life.

Happy Holidays!

Much love to all,


  1. What great news. Home sweet home. Hope to see you tomorrow.
    Love Aunt sandi

  2. So So Happy! Home probably never looked so good. There is no place like home! Try to relax and enjoy some quiet time with one day at a time. Alison, you have been through so much - I am in awe of you. You are so strong and although this journey is still ongoing, be good to yourself and just remember how many people love you and are still praying for you. Get some well deserved rest and be good to Mom!

    See you soon.
