After Irene

Still not home yet, neither is she - We are displaced persons battling all types of storms.
She's still stable, which is good - And slept through Irene.
Her nurse says she's comfortable and safe and I'm grateful.
Little victories here and there -
Patience is a virtue that plays with my nerves and keeps me on edge.
But patience is key and I will be patient for the both of us.

Lost power for 12 hours at my sister's last night.
5 of us, plus the dog played "Apples to Apples," by candlelight and red wine.
Electric came back this morning at 9 a.m., but I still feel in the dark.

There was flooding, both in the basement and emotionally speaking.
But blood sugars are behaving nicely - Which leaves me both surprised and grateful and wondering what's up.

I haven't heard her voice since Tuesday - And now I'm crying just thinking about that fact.

My hand is starting to shake a bit - But the glass will remain 1/2 full.
