Update Update

Dianne is extremely tired today.  Fortunately, she has no physical rehab. scheduled.  (On the other hand, we are both anxious to know how much her most recent hospitalization has set her back.  Not much say the therapists, perhaps hardly at all.)  Walking through a nursing home makes me wonder if this where they get the inspiration for modern zombie stories.  So far as i can tell, the stories have no relationship to either the facts or legends of Haiti.  Dianne will be much more alert when she has had some rest, i'm sorry that that is probably not true for some of the others there.  One exciting thing: when aides were slow in responding to the call light.  Dianne and i decided to try to get her into bed by ourselves.  This is one of or three of four obstacles that must be overcome in order to get her home.  We thought we made the transfer relatively easily, a big boost to my morale.  Also the insurance company is finally making really friendly noises about "working with us."

Our oldest granddaughter will be coming by this weekend to introduce us to her boyfriend.  The tiny grandfatherly part of me is squealing with excitement and jumping for joy.  The much larger autistic part  is quaking in fear.  I have decided to push that fear aside and enjoy the moment(s).

This is all generally very good. Congratulations on accomplishing the transfer into bed. The rest will happen!

And good for you for enjoying the moment. That is also very good.

Great! Great for you, and Dianne. May she be home soon, and may the visit with your granddaughter and her boyfriend go well. It will!

My God, even the insurance company is recovering!

Congratulations on your join achievement. :) You and Dianne, not you and Dianne and the insurance company.

And I'm curious-- does setting aside part of you work, for you? I ask because it hasn't worked well for me.

Thank you.

I think it is a question of how my feelings get framed. An inexplicable and seemingly inpenetrable wall of fear in the face of some seemingly ordinary challenge is replaced by "Oh that's just my autism and i can leave that aside for a few hours, days or however long might be necessary."

That makes sense. And thanks for explaining!
