My mother, a/k/a tillyjane, got sprung from the hospital this afternoon. As it happens, today was the day Mother of the Child had organized the_child's (somewhat belated) family birthday party. calendula_witch was here, as were lillypond and The Niece. So we had a Chinese food feast, then festive cake with pumpkin ice cream, all of it something of a double celebration. (the_child's favorite gift appeared to be the Yoyo Ma tickets her other grandparents gave her.)

I'm primary caregiver tonight and tomorrow, with all that implies. (Including a day off work.) My aunts, tillyjane's sisters, should be arriving tomorrow evening, which will spread that responsibility around. After that, we'll see how it goes forward.

For now, I sleep until the next medication alarm.

Was nice to get a call from the_child. She sounded very happy.

Hugs to you and tillyjane may you all rest well and sleep deep.

Yo-Yo Ma is wonderful. I've seen him several times. He is always teaching something, usually multiple things at once, if you pay enough attention. Always sharing. Always joyful about it.

Glad everyone's home and happy - enjoy the role of caregiver - it's a gift to be able to flip roles like that :>.
