The Princess is Back in the House

Since Princess Ruby rode her royal chariot home 
she has been sleeping.


Did you know it's actually rumored that Ruby's chariot 
often doubles at odd hours as a big ol' 12 passenger van 
that has food particles ground into the carpet, 
zillions of fingerprints on the windows, 
and smells kind of funky?

Who knew?

It's actually so preposterous that I'm not sure I believe it. 

Ruby did ask me to thank 
all of her friends around the world 
for their love, support and prayers.  

Her surgeon, Dr. Heimann was a huge blessing with his medical expertise
and kindhearted way. Dr. H. hung around for a quite a while after,
spending time just visiting with us.
We are so very grateful for his sweet care of our precious Ruby-girl.

Dr. Heimann


Ruby had about 3 or 4 tiny seizures as she was recovering.

Yes, those seizures freaked me out.

Seizures are to be respected and the grand mals
she's had in the past are certainly serious.  

Each medical professional who cared in any way for Ruby today
was shown her first-ever picture in the hopes of not only helping
them understand what a miracle she is but imploring them to treat her
with generous amounts of tenderness.  

Thank you for all your prayers.

God has, once again, been very faithful.

Ruby is definitely wanting to suck her cherished
recently-found-finger and almost, sorta' kinda' able,
but no doubt, it tastes not-quite-so-yummy as it did about 12 hours ago.

Please, if Ruby comes to mind, pray for her continued healing 
and a freedom from any more seizures.

Ruby would thank each of you if she could.

Ruby did mention that she wants me to tell you 
she loves you all very much. 

But on a side note, Ruby was overheard mumbling 
something about whoever had the idea of 
not allowing her to eat this morning is still very much
on her 'very, very naughty' list.  

Too bad for you - no present from Ruby this Christmas.  

31 Simply Sweet Words:

  1. Thank you so much for the update. I was wondering all day how she did. God is so good. I will be praying for her continued good recovery and no more seizures for sure. Sweet, Sweet Ruby. I think of her often. My daughter (13) is allowed to follow your blog so we talk about Ruby often. Your sweet blessing and Gods big miracle girl.

  16. So glad she is home and smiling. We will continue our prayers for her. Hope she doesn't lose too much weight then they will be yapping that she is too thin. Haha. Seriously she is just right in every way fearfully and wonderfully made. And I keep having a vision of her eating and talking. Go God!
