    Oh Emmy, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm so glad you were able to make that trip too.

    My grandpa passed away this morning. This picture is from just shy of two years ago, when my dad and I drove down to Kansas to surprise him. Prior to that, the last time I'd seen him (in person) was in 2004. I'm so glad I was able to make that trip.

    And now only a week away from March! It's been a long month - sick the last 2 1/2 weeks. Hope I get my voice back soon.

    Or as some might call it, "living the dream".

    Today I looked at the travel trailer I will buy in lieu of renting an apartment for the foreseeable future.

    I was also licked by a giraffe.

    So I suppose a pretty good day.

    He had a bit of a setback early last week, and was admitted back to the hospital with pneumonia, but he's doing a lot better. Hopefully after this, things will settle down for a while.

    He's doing okay. His surgery went well, so hopefully things will settle down. My grandma is doing okay, and so far I think they are both adjusting well. This is something we were prepared for a few years ago, but my grandpa going into the home was avoided when a senior living apartment opened up for them, when they moved off their farm. But now that his Parkinson's has progressed to the point it's at, and with my grandma's hip problems, it couldn't be avoided this time.

    So far, they haven't lost power, but my brother said there are a bunch of branches down from the ice. Glad it's supposed to start warming up tomorrow.

    So glad we didn't get as much ice as was predicted. Back in KS, where my folks live they got 1.13" of ice between Sunday/today. Slip-sliding away indeed!

    Sorry to hear about your grandfather, Emmy. Two major traumas for him in one day. That is really hard for your family. Too bad you aren't nearby family to share whatever is needed with them.

    Not one of their more well known songs now, but I don't want to repeat lyrics.
