...I have never been this tired in my life.
Home. Possibly in one piece, but I'm not sure. This trip was more exhausting than refreshing, to be honest, not least because I got a call on Saturday night informing me that my grandmother had broken her hip and had to be rushed to the hospital. The result was my being on the phone off and on constantly for pretty much my final 48 hours in Kalamazoo. Fortunately, the break wasn't as bad as it could've been, and she seems to be recovering very quickly from the surgery.

(My feet hurt; my back hurts; my head hurts. Everything hurts.)

Ugh. Why do we all keep having grandma trauma? :( I am glad she's doing better.

I don't know. Because our grandparents are growing increasingly very old, I suspect. I mean, mine are pushing 90! Quite a feat.

:/ I'm sorry about your grandma. Get some rest!!!

I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother - and you! I hope you're both recovering soon.

For 86 years old, she's proved amazingly resilient. Actually, she's been through a couple of ordeals that I'd hazard to call worse than this in the grand scheme of things. But it still scared the hell out of me.

Aww--I'm so sorry!

I know you're relieved to be home! I hope you have a little time to rest before having to jump back into things!

And I'm glad your grandmother's injury wasn't as serious as they first thought. I hope she recovers well and quickly and I'll keep her in my prayers! :D

Thank you :) Well, I shouldn't technically too take much time to recover, but I fear I'm going to have to. I'll lose at least the rest of this week to keeping weird hours.

Oh, no! Best wishes to your grandma.

Thanks - she's doing very well, thank goodness!

No wine, but I slept for 13 hours straight. I don't think I've ever done that in my life.

Even during the times I've been depressed, sleep isn't something I do in large quantities. My body knows it isn't a legitimate escape: bad dreams can find me there, and my dreams are worse when I'm depressed.

Best of luck on the recuperation! I'm glad we found the time to meet up Sunday evening.

Me too! Hope you got home safely.
