checking in

I'm home.
For awhile anyway.

It's been a crazy few weeks.
I went back home cause Noonie fell and in the hospital was diagnosed with pneumonia.

The antibiotics made him crazy.
Like, for real, crazy.

No sleep.

So we got him off the antibiotics and he went back to his normal, awesome self.
Except that we found out that the cancer was spreading and he was beyond treatment help.

So he went home with Hospice.
Which makes me so sad.
But he seems content and ready for whatever comes next.
So I am trying to be strong and brave.

He is doing great for the moment.
Getting out.
Seeing his friends.

I was driving him nuts with my hovering so I decided to give him a break
and come home for a bit.
Cause we have important things to attend to this week.
Holy shit.
I am so behind.

I am calling him incessently, however, continuing to drive him nuts.
And I will be going home again soon, to check in.
But for now, he is being taken care of.
And for that, I am grateful.

Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers.
