The kids and I made the drive to San Jose on Wednesday and Thursday. We are staying in a nice hotel that serves us a good breakfast! A shopping center with all kinds of restaurants and a Safeway is in the same complex. It takes us 15-20 minutes to get to the hospital depending on traffic.
Dad has had ups and downs this week, with last night starting a down ward spiral. He hasn't pulled out of it this morning and we are waiting to hear what is going on. It doesn't look good at this point. If he does buck up, he will not be going back home, but into a skilled nursing facility aka nursing home. I HATE nursing homes and I hate to do this, but mom can not care for him anymore.
I have dozed a little bit each night we have been on the road and here, so I am exhausted and near tears all the time. I am going to try some Benedryl tonight to see if I can at least get a little bit of sleep. Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers, especially John as he seems to have a migraine today. I think he woke up with it. We still have over an hour before we pick up Robert at the airport. I need him and he's only here for about 24 hours.
