Heading Home

Well, when it rains it pours. I found myself booking tickets yesterday afternoon and am on my way back to Iowa now.

I am currently in Houston. What a perfect stop over.

Grandpa Black and MeMy grandpa has been in and out of stuff for the last month. This past week it’s gotten much worse. He’s in hospice care now. Yesterday they were saying he wouldn’t make it through the night. I just didn’t know what to do stay and work or try and make it home. I called my boss and explained to him that things weren’t good.

He said, “Go home and just work from there”. So I will be in Iowa till June 1st.

I love my grandpa. He’s been an amazing person in my life, he’s taught me so much, been there for me and it’s been so sad over the past few years to see him getting less and less active. We all knew this was coming, but we thought it would be a while yet. This has all come on so fast.

Anyone who knows me well knows how much I talk about my grandpa and how much I look up to him. I just wish this wasn’t happening. I wish I had had a little more time to go back and be with him while he was still able to comprehend what was going on…

The weekend itself had some ups and downs, but that’s all suited for another entry, another time.
