Time:05:16 pm
Hello all!!

I'm back sooner than I thought I'd be - thankfully my father hasn't had to go into hospital as I'd feared. The doctor has assured us that the stomach complaint he has is nothing serious, so that's a relief. I was also worried that my mother might have to go back into hospital as her leg didn't seem to be getting any better since she's come home (she had a fall a couple of months ago and was in hospital for 5 weeks). The doctor said she must try to exercise it more.

Thank you so much shirebound for the virtual teddies - that was so sweet of you:) Many thanks also to those who sent PM's - I will be replying asap:)

Now I must start catching up, but first - I've just seen these absolutely gorgeous pics of Elijah posted by karin_woywood on Elijah Finds






He was in LA shopping for paper plates on 4 July - a fact which for seem reason brings a very soppy smile to my face!! I think he looks so sweet here, very little facial hair and, what delights me more than anything, he looks a bit chubbier in the face!! IMO, this is Elijah at his most adorable. I love posed photoshoots as much as anyone, he can look incredibly gorgeous and sexy, but very often these don't look like the real Elijah to me, he's playing a part, just the same as a role in a film. It's pics like these, just being his natural, adorable self, that really set my heart aflutter:)

I need to drive over to the Ralph's market that I think this was at and see if the set up is the same. It's so odd to see him standing near the paper plates on one side of the aisle and the cooking oils on the other...so similar in my market. It's like he's a normal person! :D

I love these pics, too. He looks so happy and relaxed. His hair is a bit longer, isn't it?

Glad to hear the parents are better than expected. That's always such a worry.

Did the doctor give your mother examples of exercises to do, or can the doctor send her to physical therapy? I remember some years ago I sprained my ankle and it just would not get better. A doctor gave me some exercises to strengthen one of the muscles in my leg, and that did the trick. It's not always easy to know what will work best unless an expert tells you.

"It's like he's a normal person! :D"

Hehe - I always get a little thrill seeing him do normal things like that:)

"Did the doctor give your mother examples of exercises to do, or can the doctor send her to physical therapy"

She was supposed to go to physio at the hospital but said she didn't feel ready. When the doc came he gave her a little demonstration of what she should do, but I think she forgets most of the time. She's 92 and is getting rather confused and forgetful - I remind her as often as possible but she doesn't seem to want to bother. But at least she's getting up in the mornings now - when she first came home she just wanted to lie in bed which was a big worry.

Bless her heart. At 92 she's doing rather well. I'm glad she's getting up in the morning.

This good news must be such a relief for you, Pauline. I'm so pleased you weren't away for long, and that your parents are doing better than expected.

Thanks for posting these lovely Elijah pics. He does look healthy and happy ~ love that smile.

Take care,
Blossom.

He really does - I don't know if I'm imagining it, but I'm sure he's looking a bit fuller in the face:)

I'm glad your dad has received a respite, and I hope you will, too, Paulie, although it sounds like your mom is worrying you too much for that.

Thanks for posting these recent shots of EW. I wonder who took these photos? He seems relaxed and amiable, and not taken aback by being photographed while trying to shop.

Thanks, Mechtild - as you know from my PM, your kind thoughts are much appreciated:)

Apparently the fan who is with Elijah in the one pic was with her husband so I should imagine it was him who took that pic - and perhaps the other one too. He is always so kind to fans, even when approached in situations like this:)

It's so lovely to see you back, and much sooner than expected. I'm really glad that your parents aren't as bad as you feared.

I totally agree about pics like this.. he is SO adorable.. I could kiss him :)) He is so generous with his time no matter who stops him for a photo, bless him. My first thought too was that he's put on a little weight.. his arms and face certainly look a lot healthier..I LOVE that he's almost clean shaven, with just a hint of sexy stubble. Sexy and adorable.. the perfect combination don't you think? How i would love to just bump into him at a store..

It was sooooo lovely to see these pics, it's been way too long since we last saw him. I missed him.

Many thanks, Belle - it's a relief all round!!

"Sexy and adorable.. the perfect combination don't you think? How i would love to just bump into him at a store.."

Yes, I do think!! I really can't imagine how I'd react if I bumped into him completely unexpectedly - knowing me I'd probably become rooted to the spot:D

I hate it when we go a long time without seeing him too - it's so lovely to see pics that were taken within the last few days:)

ETA: I also meant to say - I wonder if that could be Zak with his back to us in the one pic?

Hmm.. you could be right. It certainly looks like it could be him anyway. Off to the family bbq together for July 4th maybe.. bless! ;)

Glad your parents aren't as poorly as you feared which must be a relief.

And yes, two very normal, nice piccies of Elijah I agree. I don't think he's put on any weight as such but his body is very firm under that T-shirt!

I do love pics like this - when he's just doing very normal things as we do!! To me, he does look slightly fuller in the face compared to some earlier pics - I do hope I'm not imagining it:)
