Dad's much better. He's out of ICU, on the floor with the rest of the riff-raff, and will hopefully be home tomorrow. Turns out he did have flu, plus a UTI, plus dehydration and then pneumonia and congestive heart failure brought on by over-enthusiastic rehydration in the ER... *shakes head* I don't even know how to feel about the entire thing, except glad that he's better. I guess that's enough for now, but I know that there is more I need to process.

Wolfie's coming up tomorrow. I've missed him. It's such a comfort being in the house with him, and not having him there to reach out to at night is tough. I want very much to curl up with my head on his lap and just let go of this tension. Have I mentioned lately how glad I am to be marrying him? Well, I am. It's a lucky girl I am.

Yikes! Glad he's doing better. What a lot to fight at once.

Oh, and I neglected to mention that during the time he was sick at home (not quite a week), he managed to miss two days worth of blood-pressure meds, which caused him to be so loopy he couldn't answer simple questions. This loopiness, combined with his fairly minor but still present hearing loss, caused the hospital staff to ask us if he was a drinker, because he was exhibiting the same symptoms as an alcoholic going through withdrawals. Lovely.

But yes, he's doing better. And throughout all this, my mother and I have been trying to find a new caterer. Ack.
