Dianne will be coming home, God willing, this week! Almost certainly not today, though we had hope. Probably not on Tuesday, but this week. There must be a "home evaluation" which, so far as i know, has not been scheduled yet (and it is nearly noon). Then the necessary "home health" and physical rehab arrangements must be made. Soon, very soon!!
We had a great visit with granddaughter and boyfriend and i was such a typical nuerotypical grandfather that you would not believe! It may have been fortunate that i arrived late, after the others had assembled and begun the conversation. I was pleasant, i took turns, i acknowledged (at all times!) the presence of the other persons.
I maintained boundaries yet was comfortable in my own skin, at ease, maintaining eye contact -- and all of this seemed completely natural! I was sorry to see the visit end!! At one point i actually started to tear up. Boyfriend seems like a great guy; he reminds me a lot of granddaughter's wonderful stepfather.
