Well, we're flying back to Puyallup tomorrow. It was nice to see everyone, though I wish the circumstances could have been better. Also I'm not big on planning a trip in less than 24 hours. Anyway, we'll be getting up bright and early and bidding farewell to everyone in Texas. I wish we lived closer to family, though I don't really want the 100 degree weather that would entail. I'm looking forward to my 75 degree summer days again.
My grandfather is still in the Neuro ICU, and will probably be in the hospital for a number of weeks, if not months. They put a g-tube and a trach in today. He's got a long road ahead of him, but I think that eventually he'll get there-- we'll just have to see. I am glad that I got the chance to come down and see him and that the worst seems to be over, though I wish this hadn't happened.
I made the mistake of telling Connor that we're going back on a plane tomorrow, and he is freaking out. Currently he's sitting on my lap-- he's been bawling whenever I put him down and leave the room. I think he's worried that because Daddy went on a plane ride and left for a long time, that I'm going to go on the plane and leave him here. We're talking a little about it right now, and we'll see whether or not he'll go back down in a couple of minutes or if he's going to do this all night. I hope not-- we've got to get up early.
See you all in Washington tomorrow!
