The Waiting Room, Fourth Cuppa


(Painting by Claude Monet, Antibes, 1888.  Love this one.  We have a reproduction of it hanging over the fireplace in our bedroom, and it is one of those lovely scenes that just immediately pulls you into a sense of calm.  Thought everyone else might appreciate it as well.)

I spoke with Digby and there is still no word from the surgeons or any news on outcome other than what we already heard.  And so we continue to wait…but I wanted to give everyone a fresh waiting room.  Consider this an open thread for the comments below.  Will update as I get one.

Digby shares some thoughts here.  And for everyone who has ever wondered about the quote on the blog header, wonder no more.
