Thursday 2 days post op.

She’s still recovering and trying to catch up on sleep. This is very very tough on her, and she is strong.  Some tubes coming out, pain seems to be under control but need to stay ahead of it. Slow walks around the halls. Hopefully home tomorrow, we’ll know more in the morning. Many thanks to all for your loving comments, I have been reading them to her. Be safe. The Husband.

    Hollye and Jeff –

    You are in my thoughts and prayers every day and I am so grateful for your taking the time to record your days on this website. I read it with great anticipation and I wish you the very best and painless recovery over the next few weeks. Welcome home.

    Dearest Hollye and Jeff, I join the many that are with you in spirit and love, asking God's blessing on your hopes and dreams. Prayers are for the strength for each day, and healing for your precious vessel. Because your marriage is such that when one weeps, the other tastes salt, I pray that you will encourage and comfort each other everyday. May your faith be strong as you claim God's promises for restoration. Always, Hollye, my love to you… Susie

    Hi Hollye and Hubbie, Family and Friends,

    I am Maili's friend aka Maili's Silver Liner Soul Sister in Houston , Texas.

    I almost got to meet Hollye when she was supposed to be in Houston for a trunk show.

    But, as anyone who knows Maili, knows that we know how to connect! Whether near or far!

    So: from across the miles, from a wannabe and willbe Soul Sister: to dear Hollye: I am with you, you are in my thoughts, in my heart and in my prayers.

    Sending you love and most sincere wishes for a speedy and full recovery,,, soon.

    Dear Hollye,
    I do not think a hour has passed today that I did not find myself thinking about you. Later when I read JJ's entry, I was imagining how hard it must be to walk the halls, hoping you were not trying to be too strong, and wishing there was some way to relieve you of every pain. I am so grateful that you set up this blog and please thank JJ for his comments. They are so utterly tender and geniune. You continue to be in my prayers. Take care of your sweet selfand give my best to Isabelle.
