First, from Valerie and me both, thank you all so much for your prayers and kind words via comment and email.
Second, Valerie just got home yesterday afternoon, and is doing well, considering. She has three happy and willing servants catering to every caterable whim and guarding her from giant hurtling cats.
Third, please don't stop praying for my dear Valerie.
Fourth, I'm finding that I can't put my mind on writing or finishing serious posts, other than on this subject. I may put up a short HT tomorrow. Thank you for understanding.
Finally, we re-watched The Quiet Man for the whateverth time in the hospital. What a terrific movie. Great example of how to touch on "adult" themes while maintaining a G or (at most) PG level. Not one frame or word further was necessary.
