[personal] A good evening in

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.
