Pops has been back home for a week now, after spending a week in the hospital. He was pretty dehydrated, had pneumonia, and his calcium is way too high. He's still weak and not eating/ drinking enough, but he can walk under his own power (even if he's supposed to keep the walker nearby). There have been visits from a physical therapist and some nurses, who say it's normal to be weak for a while. Mostly, he just wants to sleep.
I only went up to the hospital once - I was taking care of Connor that week, so the kiddos were my main priority. He and Russ went to a rock painting party at the library that Saturday; now, I've been gathering river stones for us to paint at home. Last Saturday was the finale for the Summer Reading program, which turned out to be a con. Russ and I went to that together - did some crafts, took pictures in front of a greenscreen, bought him some Pokemon cards and myself a poster of Kiki. Neither one of us had costumes, but that's alright.
I've been hired on as a receptionist at the hospital and I'll be going to orientation on Monday. It's a late afternoon/ evening shift, so that's great for me. Not quite sure which days yet though. I think I might have weekends off, or at least have them off occasionally.
I need to catch up on Season 16 of RVB; I really haven't been watching or reading much of anything lately. I did finally manage to get Doc to have lunch with me though, even if it was only for an hour. It was good to see a friendly face again
The weather the past few days has been gorgeous; it almost feels like autumn. While I would love for it to continue, I'm not holding out any hope - August is always one of the worst months when it comes to the heat. Still, I'm doing my best to enjoy it while it lasts. I need to gather up some plant life for the craft project I'm doing with Mom tomorrow at the library - flower pressing, or something like that. Probably just going to hunt though my backyard
Now with pictures for everyone who wanted to see my art stuff!
I smashed some plants.
Abstract rock painting.
I spent too much time on this one.
