Part #3 of the ongoing NaBloPoMo experiment.
Today was pretty grueling. I said good-bye to my uncle for the last time, and I’m pretty wrecked over that. I also had one of those weird conversations with an older relative that let’s you know they’ve finally realized you’re a grown up, too. But I’m not ready to talk about that stuff here, if I ever am. I’ve never had the luxury (?) of saying good-bye to someone because you know with 100% certainty that you will never see them alive again. The doctors are giving him 2-3 weeks at the outside. I’m hopping on a plane to head back to Seattle tomorrow morning. Mom and my sister will stay until Friday. My mom’s ticket is open ended just in case he passes before she leaves so she can stay and help.
It’s been a tough day, and my 7 week old nephew is fussing over being put to bed in the next room. I need to get some sleep, so I’ll leave this here.
