A return to praise

I am home again. I've had an awful big hole cut in me and despite 30 staples and a week of recovery I think I am doing pretty good. I've taken 2 walks today and haven't had to take any pain medicine. (The pain hasn't been that bad)

I don't know what it is about coming home from the hospital but there is something emotional that happens to me that I can't quite put my finger on. In the hospital I am generally ready to go and quite happy to leave but the next day at home I am an emotional wreck. I had a few dreams last night that for some reason really scared me and I couldn't shake them when I woke up this morning. If it wasn't for Lisa I honestly do not know what I would do with myself. She's been so wonderfully selfless during this time.

I would like to thank everyone for the prayers and letters of support I have gotten. There isn't anyway I could have done this without all of you to help me out. Please continue that I would heal, that this cancer would disappear and that I could have peaceful sleep at night. Thank you all for your continued love and support.



  1. Hey Ben, I'm glad to read you are home. I can't wait to see you guys again in a few weeks! Keep busy and stay rested.


  2. Ben, a hospital stay is a blow to the body and soul; Lyn often took a few days to normalize emotionally; just soak up the freedom and live in the present; give me a call if you'd like; 253 344 1430 thanks, bob
