An update....on the month from hell, almost-buta silver lining to itall;
This month, I have
(a) had my wife in the hopital 1st, and a extended-care faility 2nd, 3 weeks out ofthe past 4.(She's now discharged medically, but going back every day for therapy classes until the end of this week.)
(b) gave away 1 of the 5 pets last week(TY JESUS!). So, now we're down to the original 2 dog-2 cats.

Well, (a) pretty much covered te reason for the MFH. But things are MOST DEFINITELY(capped for emphasis) lookng up!]

Her hospitalization and fllowup therapy turned out to be, no pun intended, just what the docotr ordered. She acting and feeling better now than I have EVER known her to. Getting up and going to therapy class for 6 hours...the lays down, rests for a while, and does basic household duties while I'm working.
She @ I went to church for the 1st time tiogether in YEARS today. We went to see her family for the 1st time yesterday.
Plus we're getting some much-needed catch-up in **other** areas as well.:_)
Her time in the hospital has given her outlook on life a vast 180 turnaround. Sh apprecaites what she hs, and who she has, more now than ever before. Gives me a reason to **quit** looking and start wanting to come home again.
We're talking, honestly and openly, more so now than ever before, too. Don't tell me we're actually starting to act like a norml couple now!

I know better, after years of disappointment and experience, than to put all my hope in 1 basket. Nor do I expect everything to get better anytime soon.
1 things for sure, though: Things are better than just about ever before.:-)
A cheery update to my original post.
