  2. Looking due east out of a Las Vegas hotel room, picturing me floating up and outside, soaring over the mountain range, across the midwest, and straight to your hospital waiting room. Giant hug, me whispering in your ear, “She’s going to be GREAT!,” and slipping silently back across the terrain, back to this chair and this computer, with a big smile and a whole lot of confidence in all of you.

  3. Do you need anything? I will drive down – just to be there, or to bring you whatever. Call me or email me if you want.

  4. Just had this image of you and Jim sitting in that waiting room and it being crammed full of people…virtually-speaking. All of us out here waiting with you in there, surrounding you with love and best thoughts.

  5. Oh, Oh, Oh! So exciting and so scary. Thinking of you all day. I woke up with “set fire to the rain” running through my brain, and it hasn’t left all morning. Love to all of you.

  6. I kept saying prayers for you all night and am sitting here with Ana’s present from Poland… a good luck gnome, on my desk, where it reminds me daily of Ana… Please let me drop it off for her sometime. In the meantime, I pray along with you, wait the interminable time until we hear she is fine and has come out of this in great shape, and you can all get on with the healing and looking forward to normalcy. You are so strong, and so is Ana. With love, Betty

  7. We have made this place around you, we are holding you, we are with you.


    Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
    Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
    And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
    Must ask permission to know it and be known.
    The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
    I have made this place around you,
    If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.
    No two trees are the same to Raven.
    No two branches are the same to Wren.
    If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
    You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
    Where you are. You must let it find you.

    • Thanks, Erica, I am BREATHING WITH THE FOREST and wearing a High Meadow sweatshirt for the day. This poem is such a powerful metaphor. Grandma Janne

  9. Still here – need to get work done, and I’ll be here, waiting for your updates at the same time. Wishing you strength and patience!

  10. I am sitting here biting my nails. Keeping vigil. Hang in there! You and Jim are some seriously tough parents and I admire your strength and courage.
