We got good news yesterday – my father is going to be home for Christmas. He finally was deemed able to eat and drink – he had his first meal in nearly three weeks yesterday. It’s not going to be a picnic – he’s going to have to be watched around the clock, and there will be nurses coming into the home to help out. (My brother and I will both be helping wherever we can, of course). But the important thing is he’ll be with us for the holiday.

His discharge date is a week from today. Originally, they were going to send him home Friday – too soon - but my mother went over to the hospital and read them the riot act, with a few extra chapters.

So this particular nightmare appears to be winding down a bit, at least. It has been a hell of a couple of months. Last night, I estimated that my family has had a total of 11 days of what could be considered normal life between this month and last, between Sandy and this.

Everyone, thank you so much for your well-wishes and support. It means a lot. I’ll get to all the comments on my fics as soon as I can, I promise!
