Godspeed Eomoni!

May 29, 2007

Haven’t had much time to write recently. We had a great visit from our friends Chris and Carrie. During their time here, we did a temple stay for a few days, saw the ancient Silla capital of Gyeongju (or Gaengju – as the local dialect puts it), took in the Buddha’s Birthday Lotus Lantern Parade and Concert extravaganza, and…. and…. got sick for a few days.

Other than that, we’ve visited with relatives, had fun with both our hyeongs, and gotten some good running miles in. Only one month left in the fulbright, then an extra month on my dime, then onwards to Appleton (or, in Korean it would be sagwachon).

But in the biggest news, it’s been a long hard slog of a late winter/spring for our Mom. Two surgeries, recovery, taking care of Grandpa, etc. etc. She is recovering again right now, and we wish her the very very very best.

MOM~ Get well soon!




  1. Mom – We hope you are home resting and feeling 110% soon! Much love and many hugs from the other side of the world. Looking forward to seeing you soon…poolside, of course!

    p.s. thanks for the anniversary card! this anniversary brings back particularly vivid memories, since it was just 2 days after our Madison wedding that we came to Korea in 2001.

  2. Hi,

    Leaving to get mom from hospital. The back muscle flap not needed so neither was icu stay. Dr. says recovery should be shortened also. Talked to her this am and she sounded well. Sore, of course

    Bless you.


  3. Thanks to you two for all your good wishes and prayers. Thanks to EVERYONE for all the good wishes and prayers. They sure paid off. Doc called this afternoon to say pathology report was all clean! I am tired and sore but feeling better. xxoo
