    Must have been - I am an off-again/on-again smoker, but never a serious one - I forget about it when Phillip's not around. On the other hand, Phillip has been a serious smoker since he was 15 - WAS. We are both non-smokers as of yesterday, and that's the final word on THAT. We have oxygen tanks in here, for goodness sakes! I threw out every cigarette those orchids had hidden around here!

    EXACTLY!!!! I was just reading these to Phillip - his first good night's sleep last night, and a beautiful day here today - he thinks this is the most beautiful place he's ever been. He's so happy to be home, he's been intermittently in tears. I've finally gotten the place cleaned up and I'll post photos of the current "grow area" pretty soon. Adding new orchids while the victims are recovering is the plan! Already making tentative plans to head to FL! In the meantime, the near-death AOS Miltassia and 8 resuscitated others are starting to thrive up in the special nursery in the northeast. We are ALL on the great road back to living life at its fullest!

    Y'all should pat yourselves on the back - you've pulled us along when we didn't have the strength to keep it up ourselves. THANK YOU!!!!

    Oh, I think you two would have done fine on your own, but thank you for letting us in and be part of your lives. Next time, Phillip, just ask and we will all get to know you. You don't have to go to the hospital! LOL Love to hear you guys are back on the right track.

    Hooray from me too. Maura. I know how Phillip must feel - I was once 3 weeks in hospital too. BTW I am so happy that you've confiscated all the cigarettes from the orchids; I'm sure they'll be much healthier now. And so will you and Phillip, without all that second-hand smoke!!

    Once again. WELCOME BACK Phillip!!!~

    SUPERUPDATE!!! It's been a tricky time for both of us with Phillip at home and so weak - still not feeling good, and I've gotten rather rundown. So.... my fabulous parents (the new, laid-back, retired version of them) are flying down from Maine tomorrow afternoon and staying at a hotel close by until Christmas afternoon. They should be a big help so I don't have to take care of Bigfoot, the house, my kids' exam panics, and of course, my orchids all at the same time. Yay! The muffled sobs are disappearing quickly....
