Scenes Of Boston

When David was sleeping I would take walks in the area. this was a telephone and telegraph building that is now verizion office.These are over each window. I believe the style is art deco.
The fan window is just beautiful.

 The detail work on this building is amazing.

This sundial was on the hospital grounds. It is huge and keeps good time.

This is the view from David's hospital window. We see the colleges practice crew on the Charles river.There are also lots of duck boats that come and go.

And this out of focus picture is sun set from my hotel.
I am home for a few days, Sadie my kitty was so happy to see me she circled me and cried. She now is sleeping near by so she can open her eye and make sure I am still there. I was a way for 10 days and she was well cared for by friends and neighbors.

David's appetite is getting better and he felt pretty good today, as the nurses say one day at a time.
I am going back to Boston mid week. Thank you so much for all of your amazing up lifting comments.

Have a great week.

Great photos of Boston Cathy! Thank-you for thinking of us while you are taking care of dear Hubby. So glad to hear he is feeling a little better and you can come home for a break. It's always good to get out of the hospital for a little while anyway. Will be keeping you both in thought and prayer as always!
Hugs!

Eating is always a good sign don't you think. It's good for you to get home and sleep in your own bed for a few nights. Recharge in your own environment. The photos of Boston are lovely. Boston is one of my most favorite places to visit. Prayers your way. Susan

Boston is a beautiful city--especially when you look up or out from a high window. Love to see the boats on the Charles River. I have been praying for David both morning and night and during the day and I know, God holds him in the palm of His hand and he will recover and have good years ahead.

I'm glad you were able to get home for a few days to rest. Staying at the hospital can be so draining, emotionally and physically. Take a few quiet days and know that Dave is in good hands.

I discovered your blog while serching for folk art designs. I am a quilter. It was meant to be. The scenes of Boston brought bake the memories of when i met my husband. I was drawn into your life. We have been married 35 years and I think our husbands wore the same tuxedo for the wedding! We have recently been through a rough time battling first lung cancer and then prostate cancer. My husband is very private and I was not alowed to blog about it. I admire you because I think it would have been great therapy for me as it appears to be for you.
Hoping for the best.

Kathy said...

Cathy, it's so good to know that you have been able to make a trip home ...things must be going well, if you felt you were able to do that! Boston looks lovely ... it's number one on my list of places to visit, if we ever get over to the US.
Lots of love
