The only thing predictable about the last 5 days is that the nurses come every 90-minutes and that endless amounts love flow towards us from people near and far and in more forms that we knew possible; forms of flowers, hugs, words, notes, smiles, tears, licks (these from the dogs), juice, money, loud laughter, more juice, reclining chairs, pillow cases, pudding, blankets, traveling, dog walking, making phone calls, coffee, firewood chopping, weeding, animal care, hand holding, foot rubs, yogurt, joke telling, list making, all forms of “clear liquids”, translating doctor speak, painting toe nails, balloons.

And that is more than enough.
