Joe needs one to heal.
Mrs needs one for the loss that will occur next week.

As our loved ones ail, we stand on the sidelines holding our hearts in hand and hoping all will be well. There are times, when they slip though our hands and fall on the floor then get stepped on. We pick them up, dust them off, only to continue or vigil. It's all we can do as we wait for their return to us.

This is what the flower is for. The hope the races though our veins it keeps us whole


I am scared for her.
The effects of her heart surgery almost cost her life and/or kidneys, 30 days ICU, another 2 wks rehab.
Next week the Mrs will lose a part. Earn her second ribbon and then possibly have treatments for the rest of her life.
So as the date approaches, 3 days, and my apprehension grows. She knows of my concern, not the turmoil that rages inside. That's it quietly eating at my wall of resolve and trust all will be well.

We've been there before and I have photo's from when I hung out over a cliff or two to get some photos. If we go we will drive this time as well.

Ken thank you for the wonderful news about your wife. I'm sure both of you are very relieved to have this behind you. Now move on to that trip to Estes Park and enjoy every minute.

We, my husband, three children and my mom, went to Estes Park the year the Great Thompson Dam broke and the main highway to Estes was closed. While , in a pool, at a motel a guy told my husband about going the back way. Hmmm, needless to say it was hairy ride going up and going back. We did get to spend the most part of the day and decided to git a going while it was still daylight.. Whew that was that andnever got out west again by car anyway.

Great news, Ken! I'm so happy for you, my friend ... and, oh yeah, you've both earned that vacation!!

klocowolf

Fine and well we go next this coming week for the removal of the last drain. She is wry and spry. And talking about a vacation to Estes Park.

Ken,
Five days ago I wrote below and today, if I may ask, how is the Mrs. fairing today? 4-30...5:38p.m.

Oh, ken I am so delighted to know that the Mrs. is doing OK...God Bless You Both!!

klocowolf

Bowing deeply, thank you each and all.

Ken, She is in my heart and prayers. I know this is the hardest thing you will ever have to go through and every time it gets harder and scarier. I know because I just watched my best friend of almost 50 years go through it. Nothing anybody can say will help you believe any more than you already do. Trust that she will find her way and get past this and you will spend a long and happy life together. Be strong if you can.

All of your friends here, the true honest people that do care are pulling for her. And for you, too. And I know I repeat myself in a lot of different ways but if I were you, I would be looking for her to smile because nothing will ever replace that. And if I were her, I'd feel the same way about you. God be with you, my friend.

Ken ~ It's such a relief to know your dear wife is through the worst of it. Please continue to keep us updated as she continues to improve. After all you've both been through, tiptoeing on your part for awhile should be easy (I'd take Kay up on her toe shoes offer!), and no doubt you'll reap the benefits down the road. You are a good husband and a good man, (((Ken))).

kbolsta

Ken, you are a good, strong man who cares deeply for your loved ones. As you say, you have been through a lot together and this is just a big "pothole." As for tiptoeing, I will gladly lend you my toe shoes when I'm not using them. My heart goes out to you both and know that we are all here for you. BTW, keep a smile in your heart and share it with your wife when you can. Hugs.

Up Date: The mrs is doing well it seems that she may be through the rough places. Now comes the the emotional stuff. I've been warned to be mindful and tip-toe a lot until things begin to work themselves out.
We've been through a lot together. This is just a big pothole.

Thanks to all for all the well wishes. It means more than you know.

Thinking about you and the Mrs. I pray all went well and will be on the road to recovery.

MaggieMay_MMM

Ken ~ I, too, (and others) have been wondering how your wife's surgery went and how you're doing. I echo precisely what Kay said. Stop by when you can because, as Joe said, we're here for you!

kbolsta

Ken, I have been thinking about you and your family all week hoping that all has gone well for your wife. You do not have to respond to this message, I just want you to know that I am keeping you all in my heart and sending you strong good vibes. Take care, my friend. K

wjl1015

Take care my friend!! We are here for you Ken.....

Good morning, Ken. Hang on to the hope that this flower represents. Gather strength from its beauty and warmth. If it were physically possible, I would share my strength and hope with you and your Mrs. to help carry you through this time of pain. You can be there for her and we will all be here for you both. Caring wishes and warm hugs. Kay

klocowolf

To all who wish us well. I sincerely hope you never have to go through the anguish of these types of trials. They test more than just resolve, hopes, but the strength of the heart.
To those who have been through trials; my hat is off and in bow to your stamina and strength of heart and soul.

Ken,,”Stay as positive as possible. Have faith that all will be well.” I am sorry you must go through this anguish. I am praying for you and the Mrs.

wjl1015

I will keep you and your wife in my thoughts and prayers Ken. If there's anything I can do or if you need to talk......

klocowolf

Life throws a bunch of curves Mags and all. At this point it, one doesn't complain. You just roll with it.

Thanks for all the well wishes

Ken, so sorry to hear this. Flowers, Hugs, and Heartfelt thoughts heading your way.
I trust all will be well.

Ken ~ Please know that my heart aches for you and for your wife. You have endured so much in your life, and now, again, you must suffer through yet another extremely trying ordeal. Of course you are scared for her and scared for yourself. It sounds as though she's a determined fighter, Ken, and she certainly does not want to leave you! You wrote, "...rest of her life." As difficult as it is, please try to hold on to that resolve and trust. We are here to help with the turmoil raging inside. Please continue to keep that in mind. Should you need someone to talk with about that turmoil, I would be happy to give you my phone number.
Ken, it's also so important that you take care of yourself as best you can. Please don't exhaust yourself (easier said than done, I know). I admire your courage and your determination to get through what life throws at you, my friend.

Kia Kaha ~ Maggie

I'm sending you a garden full of flowers and my prayers for a positive outcome. Bless you.

Dear Sweet Ken. My heart goes out to you and your beloved wife. I remember you mentioning that she was fighting a horrific battle and wondered how the two of you were managing to get through. You are both extremely strong people, but I know the turmoil inside can be devastating. Take good care of each other and touch each other often . . . a hug, the squeeze of a hand, a look that passes between you . . . it all helps. I'm sending strong, good vibes to you both. Keep a smile in your heart.

klocowolf

Thanks Bob. This was mostly to assist Ellen in her worries.
I've mentioned it before but didn't know the surgery was for sure until a few days ago. As you may know, one's mind starts to run in wide open with crazy scenarios. Thus the thoughts to assist anyone

Best wishes to you both - and flowers!

Hismorts

Ken, I am sorry she and you are going through this and I pray that everything works out.
