home again

Home again, home again, lickety split.

We’ve made it back to Seattle. A trip south from Burlington, IA to St. Louis, MO – then back north to Chicago, and across the plains and mountains to Seattle. Sort of amazing how fast you can move around compared to even a hundred years ago.

Lela’s doing pretty well, although she had another bout of blackout due to low blood pressure. When we called this evening, she’s already talked to the nurses and her doctor, and they’ve reduced the medication some more to try and level her out.

It’s really nice to be home again. Time to get back into the sort of normal sequence of things and settle down a bit. We have a pile of mail (only a few bills) and the usual set of phone messages to work through.

Thank you to all for your wishes during this trip. I didn’t know what to expect, and frankly expected the worst. It’s clear that getting ourselves and meeting my brother there for New Years was the best possible medicine. I’m probably lay off the daily updates on my grandmother … since I won’t have daily updates so much now. That’s the thing – blog for instant family updates of happenings. Heh. Time to get back to my geekery…
