How it feels from this end

Well, the latest on the bed project is that Jerry, being Jerry, has McGuivered a makeshift bed out of an old mattress, coffee table and some plywood so he can sleep next to me in the hospital bed. We don't know if this will work yet, but we're hoping it's a good solution.

I've been feeling low. Not only does my voice go in and out of focus, but I'm having trouble keeping any kind of focus. When I try to stand up, I'm like a marionette with no strings. Yet, at the same time, the couple bites of quesadilla I had for lunch were delicious, so that's how it feels from this end.

Cinda has been helping me write this. I appreciate her doing so.

More later.

Lucie - I have loved reading your posts about yourself and your husband. You seem wonderfully synced and so happy together. The family you have created is an inspiration.

Oh, Lucie! Love ya as always! We played at Langdon place Thursday night. The last time we played there, you and I sat behind the guys and I kept bonking Ron with my slide. Unintentionally. (honest!) If it was Kevin, it might have been intentional :o) We were three across on Thursday (Ron is away). Only three trumpets, but we were next to the sassiest one... And right behind the youngest flute player. We might adopt her into the trombone section ;o) WE MISS YOU!!!! I'll call soon! Love ya!

Dear Lucie, Sending good thoughts your way...so glad your family is there with you. Hope the Jerry-rigged bed worked out; he is the cleverest! - xo

I'm so glad you have a loving family to surround you at this time. My thoughts are with you all. I hope the bed gets sorted.

Again, thanks for sharing how you really feel.

We *don't* know what to do or say--thanks again for some insight there . . .

And Jerry gets the MacGyver Award of 2010 if he can make that companion bed work out--sounds potentially treacherous!

well, now that someone has come up with Jerry-rigged, all I can say is where there's a will there's a way. Not even funny.
Saw one of our old principals today (BT), I told her about your plight ans she said she had the "best memories of you, your students and our adventures. Nothing but love, Ade
