Bens' surgery went really well today - thank you for your kindness and support! The BB was encapsulated in fibrous tissue, and the tendon and synovium surrounding it were inflamed, and starting to become infected. Bye bye BB!! Bens is still in hospital on IV antibugs, and the girls and I are snug at home, listening to the rain on the roof and looking forward to his homecoming soon!!!!!


I have just finished a hauntingly beautiful book named 'Sorrows of an American', by Siri Hustvedt, and wanted to share some of it with you!

"I think we all have ghosts inside us, and it's better when they speak than when they don't ..."
"...Hans Loewald wrote, The work of a psychoanalyst can turn ghosts into ancestors."

"...the snow was beautiful, and as I paused to watch it fall, illuminated by the building's lights against the darkness of the evening, it struck me as a moment when the boundary between inside and outside loosens, and there is no loneliness because there is no one to be lonely."

"There is music in dialogue, mysterious harmonies and dissonances that vibrate in the body like a tuning fork."

Bens is most probably going to need a 2nd surgery, currently scheduled for Sunday morning. Megs is tired, Bens is mellow, Eowyn is sassy and Coco is serene...
