Home, Exhausted, Unsettled

Got home this afternoon and promptly fell into bed for a few hours. I just had to shut down and get some solid sleep. I’m sure my physical exhaustion is partly from the stress, the unpredictability, in addition to the driving, sleeping in the Yuma heat on an old pull-out sofa with my mom… just all of it packed together.

My mom changed her ticket so she’s not leaving Arizona until Sunday but then she also has to get back to her home and her job. She let me know today that they’ve moved my grandma out of ICU but that she’s still completely out of it, very weak, barely able to eat or drink. Her blood sugars are unstable (as low as 50 yesterday before I had to leave) and her kidneys (which were barely hanging on) have shut down so she’s scheduled for dialysis now too. I’ll be anxious for updates as long as I can get them.

It is really good to be home with my family even if the rest of the drama isn’t settled. I have a lot of catching up to do.
