Many thanks for the well-wishes, comments, cards and notes both ‘snail mailed’ and emailed, regarding my husband’s hospitalisation. You brightened our days!
He is home at last. Recovery will be a matter of months, perhaps even a half-year. He is determined, though, and that will stand him in good stead. It’s grand to have him home. My Assistant, Smartie, made the most enormous catly fuss over him when we came home. It was a lovely welcome filled with trills, squirks, head-butts and demands for petting.
It may still be some time until I get back into the swing of fountain pen life. We are adjusting to the new schedule of thrice-weekly haemodialysis and until we figure out how to reorganise our days and weeks, I may still be largely absent here for some time. But I’m getting pens sent out within a few days of purchase, and will continue to do my best in terms of inquiries and correspondence. Thanks to all for your patience and understanding.
