Hi!

Here I am, safely in Sacramento.

Tired. Having trouble with my left hand. But here. At Kate's house. With one of my best friends in all the world. With Meyer lemon trees and a wisteria arbor. With wind chimes. Loved and cared for.

And needing to say thank you to all of you. For hanging in and waiting for me. For good wishes.

And for the incredible generosity that helped my kids pay for this move. There are no words that express my gratitude enough.

So these few will have to do. Thank you! There is no treasure greater than freinds. And I am a rich woman.

Such a relief to know you managed the trip. Now, hopefully, you can begin your true recovery of health and discovery of a new life. I know we have never met, but I am touched by your and your daughter's and your granddaughter's stories. It is a pleasure to walk along side you. Take dear care. My hopes that your left hand will improve soon.

Chandge is as good as you make it and it sounds like you are starting off on the right foot. You will have much to share with us, as at one time or another, we are all going to be forced to make a sudden change.

Hi back! (I just commented on J.'s blog, but guess it should really have gone here. By the way, I loved the picture of the two of you in saris.) Glad you're in Sacramento and happy birthday!

I'm so glad to hear you're settled in back in California! I'll bet being so near to family and friends will make your recovery move even faster.

As glad as I am to see you doing better and settling in, I have a question. I am aware that you support abortion rights and have blogged about it in the past. The ArchCrone and I are having a Mothers Day Blogswarm for Maternal Death (caused by lack of access to abortion services). It's a counter-protest to a staged "funeral" for aborted embryos and fetuses. You can read more about it at http://shortwoman.com/?p=571. Is this the sort of thing you and/or Julie and/or any other bloggers you know might want to be involved in? You can reply in my comments or directly to me at bmagnus at samespace.com

Once again, I am so glad to see you are back! **Hugs!**

So glad you're moved and settling in. I'm a few days behind, as always. Hope your hand is feeling better. Your wisteria arbor sounds beautiful.

Thinking of you, looking forward to hearing more from you!
