Good-byes are really important in the cultures we´ve lived in. You must say Hello AND Good-bye with a kiss when you arrive and leave a place. When someone visits your house, you walk them out to the street, even to their car.
On Saturday, we were happy to say GOOD-BYE to Quirón Hospital!!
And to Room #407!
It was a great room, but.....ADIÓS!!
Adios, ICU! Adiós, visiting hours 1-2pm and 8-9pm! Now we can see her whenever we want!! haha!
Adiós, time of uncertainty.
Adiós, tubes & cables & beeping machines!
Adiós, helpful nurses with LOTS of needles!
Adiós, flowers. (Actually, I´m taking you all home with me!)
Adiós, 104 stairs up to Jenna´s room!
Adiós, intravenous nutrition of 2500 calories a day!
A HUGE Adiós to hospital food!!!
And some of the real-life sad ones: Adiós, cute belly.
Adiós, belly button.
Adiós, stomach. You will be missed, but it is for the best. God knows.
(We will take more time later to say good-bye properly to these important losses.)
Adiós, hospital. We will be back to visit the Drs. and nurses but probably will not
spend the night again, so: Adiós! Au revoir! Bislamah!
Hello, new room!
Hello, new life post-surgery! I´m coming back at ya!!
THANK YOU for walking this journey with us; your support has been so life-giving!
