"Are we there yet?"

It's kinda hilarious reading that last post! I forgot how long I'd been feeling that way about my student teaching stint. Things are better now, and I'm busy crossing the i's and dotting the t's. . . (that's more special ed humor for you. O is for awesome - it's FUNNY! live it, know it, love it.)

It has now been 1 month and 2 days since dad has been in the hospital, turning my world on it's ear. Tonight I'm feeling I want to get a restraining order to prevent the doctors from speaking to my mother again, and my father - although he seems the more solid of the 2 at this very moment. Brother B just called reporting WBG2(dad) is as bright, engaging and lucid as ever. The nurses report he is still improving on the pneumonia, today he was already back on the wean mode trying to get him off the ventilator, and they where working on feeding him real food. So, .... again, we are continuing to be hopeful, despite the warnings of the doctors. Mom said he had a "what if" that she wasn't able to figure out, and I'm guessing dad is patiently awaiting my arrival tomorrow, so i can puzzle it out with him, and of course bring the "1776" book CD and CD player.

Mom locked herself out of the house today, ended up calling a locksmith and after 4 hours they got her, completely rattled, back inside. I'm going to spend as much of the weekend with her as possible.

Tomorrow is 80 degrees. I'm going to put the girls in aftercare, which should make their week, and not worry about it. Kevin will pick them up from there.

"Are we there yet" - is a favorite family line that dad spelled to me in response to my story about his GD Abi asking if 8 weeks was up the day after having her ears pierced.

That is my snapshot! and, watching Letterman, Damn - Courney Love looks GOOD! Robert Downey Jr. - See, people do get better!
