I'm back - much thanks to Orthomom for minding the store while I was gone and to all of you for your support.
Right now I'm wading through my emails and trying to get my bearings at work.
I'm really worn out and although I'm happy to be back with my own family I'm really sorry I was not able to stay longer. I feel guilty, conflicted, traumatized, grateful - your usual post-traumatic stress cocktail.
I hope to get back to my mail bag of "Ask Shifra" questions and give you my whole take on the hospital experience starting Monday. For now just know that all your teffilos and support were greatly appreciated.
Good Shabbos to all of you.
