More Grandfather Drama

They released him from the hospital back to his old nursing home. He didn't eat lunch and barely touched any food at supper. He's got 3 drug-resistant infections and now some of his organs are shutting down. But to talk to him he sounds fine and he still insists they fight for him no matter what. Tomorrow I'm going to talk to the boss and give him a heads-up in case I have to go to England during the spring semester for the funeral. Usually writing is soothing to me at a time like this, but even getting the 470 out that I wrote today was like pulling teeth. As always, one day at a time.

I'm so sorry you're having to go through this. Take care of yourself, and hang in there!

Aw, I'm sorry, Lexi. Especially after he seemed to be getting better.

Bummer about your Grandfather. It's hard to watch them grow more and more fragile. ((((HUGS)))
