because my Grandmommy has been in the hospital for awhile, my family and i decided it would be best if i flew to houston for a couple of days. she was (and still is) in icu at st. luke's, and i really wanted to be there for her. the one glitch: hutch had to stay in virginia (gulp). alex, Super Spouse, cleared his schedule to become a stay-at-home-dad for two days (i know, he's a keeper) so i could head back to the lone star state.
the visit was challenging, both seeing Grandmommy hurting and being away from hutch for the first time, but there was no place i felt i needed to be more. my mom has been a rock, caring for Grandmommy and serving her in an amazing way. mom really rolls out the red carpet. Grandmommy and i have a tight bond, and i felt honored to be able to help out during that short visit. she has always had a big impact on my life.
i left this morning, and Grandmommy is doing SO MUCH BETTER and getting back to her sassy self. i was really ready to be reunited with my family...and when i came home, this big ball of sunshine greeted me:
*SIGH* he makes me woozy.
