July Update

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments, prayers, and cards!! They mean a lot. Now to the latest. Phil has had three infections in his incision. They had to cut his whole abdomen open and let it heal from the inside to the outside. I am packing and bandaging it twice a day, and nurses are coming twice a week. It is finally healing, though still a big open gash. Monday we go back to see the surgeon and see when Phil will be cleared. He still has a way to go, but we are walking together and he is going out now. I hope to return to blogging sometime this month!! Thank you so MUCH!! I miss you all. I have a lot of pictures to catch you up on when I return.

I've been wondering how the two of you have been doing. Sorry to hear Phil has been having such a difficult time of it but glad he's getting better. I'll send extra prayers that all goes well with the surgeon.

I'm so happy to hear that Phil is healing. What an ordeal you two have been through. I've missed your beautiful photos (thanks, in big part, to Phil your driver!) and clever prose!! Hopefully Phil will be completely back to himself very soon.

Best,
Bonnie
