As most of you know, I was back home in San Diego to see my mom and dad. It was a sad, but good visit. Both are doing as good as can be expected.... dad may come home next week. I had a chance to talk to my brother about all the arrangements and all that has been going on. That's why I flew over now so that I could get the laydown first hand! Originally I had planned to fly over next January.
For those who don't know, my mom has advanced Alzheimers and is in a care home since last year. A few weeks ago she fell and hurt her hip and was operated on (she's 91!). My dad just had a by-pass and had a new heart valve put in... he's 87. To top things off, they had a huge water leak in their home some weeks ago....you can imagine mess ..... all the flooring had to be renewed. Luckily my younger brother, who lives with his lovely wife in the same house as my folks and he's quite the handy man.
My son, Carsten (36), flew over as well and we had some nice mother/son quality time. That was nice.
I just got back today and have to go back to work tomorrow.... there's a 9 hour time difference... hello jet lag! *yawn*
So, now back to my unpacking!
