Well, it felt like this day would never come. Later tonight we're going to get my sweet hubby!!! So far, so good..no changes so we hope it stays that way. He was able to call this morning before getting on his final flight. Sadly I missed it, but appreciated the message. Soon we'll have him in person & we can't wait. I think the incessant cleaning, running, yard frenzy may even slow down to a normal 'crazy' pace. whew. I'll post pics--or send an earlier email update--in a couple days. Thank you again for your love, support & prayers.
