White Christmas

We actually did have a White Christmas this year. But not quite what they had in mind with the famous Christmas tune. Our White Christmas was caused by a snow-thawing fog that lasted until after 1pm. It was quite impressive. And rather calming.

This year's Christmas was a bit unusual, not least because we opened presents on Christmas Eve. Granny in the hospital also added to the oddness. Thanks, btw, to all of you Granny well-wishers.

It was looking pretty bad for her. She wasn't eating, and her hospital psychosis was rather pronounced. She remembered us granddaughters when we visited her on the 23rd, but she was confused as to where she was & wanted to go home with us. (No surprise there - I wouldn't want to be in the hospital either!) On the 24th, dad, Amy & I visted and she was even loopier. She hadn't been eating (with her intestinal complaint, there really wasn't any place for food to go!) and was confused as to who we were. Christmas morning, she was just awfully sleepy. But later on Christmas, they finally had success with the intestinal complaint. And when dad & I visited yesterday, she knew who I was and had eaten some breakfast. And later, talked with Aunt Becky on the phone and was feisty. That's a good sign. Granny's naturally feisty. :-)

So, perhaps Granny will finally get back to normal. There will probably be some transition before she can go back to Becky's house. But here's hoping she'll be home as soon as possible.

I'm currently at elsaf's place and the two of us will soon be driving to judiang's house. I hope to update more about my vacation thus far when I get there. Here's hoping the drive is smooth & detour-free!
