I'm back home.
The drive across Nebraska isn't as bad as across Kansas, or so I've heard. But I don't think I've ever done the Kansas drive.
But you don't want to hear about that!
You guys are just so awesome for caring and leaving me such encouraging comments.
And your positive vibes and prayers must have done some good because my grandfather is out of ICU, sitting up and talking, looking ten times better then he did on Friday. My dad told me that he didn't think Grandpa would be alive by the time I got there on Friday. I didn't think he'd make it through Friday night.
But lo and behold...a miracle. I couldn't believe the improvement. I thought for sure this was the end and I think a lot of my other family did, too.
But Grandpa's spirit isn't quite ready to let go. And that's just fine with me.
He's still very weak and they're doing more tests on him to try and get some further answers on his condition. I don't know that he'll be able to come home for quite some time, if ever. But he just simply amazed me with his recovery. And my grandmother! Wow. She is so strong. I can't believe how determined she is to care for her husband, to be by his side no matter what. That, my friends, is true love. They've been married for over 55 years.
Back to work tomorrow. I had a lot of time to think about my career and my future while driving and I'm excited to get started.
And then maybe I'll tell you all about my car adventures over the weekend... ;-)

Yesterday I woke up in a fantastic mood. I felt pretty good (you never feel terrific when you have chronic illnesses) and I couldn't wai...
