Well... where to start.  It has been a long time since I was here and much has happened.  In Dec 2009 I developed a respiratory infection that sent me to the hospital.  When I got there they discovered a heart condition (atrial fibrillation)that required blood thinners, which led to a large abdominal hematoma, which led to other abdominal complications, many surgeries and kept me in the hospital for many months. By the time it was clear I would survive this, I was so weak I had to go into rehab to re-learn basic things like sitting up and walking.  I had more surgery in April and got out of the hospital in May of last year.  
     Before I got sick we had been preparing to move from Virginia to Rhode Island.  My husband bought the new house last January, while I was in the hospital and when I went into the rehab they moved our household goods.  When I got out of the hospital we went directly to our new house in RI.  I worked hard for the rest of the year getting stronger with visiting nurses and in-house physical therapy and finally graduating to outpatient PT.  I had another surgery at Johns Hopkins in September to re-construct my abdominal wall and then more recovery time.  I was just released from my surgeon's care and he says I am doing great.  I am back to "normal" and have actually lost a bunch of weight and feel stronger than I did before I went into the hospital (even if I have a bunch of scars on my belly).
     So I will try to put up some of the photographs that I have taken in my new yard and try to stop by everybody's page to see what you have all been up to, though I won't be able to look at the more that 10,000 deviations in my messages.  I have been gone a long time but I will try to be around more now.

Where are we going...and what's with this handbasket?????
