Patients and Patience

After almost 10 days in the hospital, CC appears about to come home. She has been formally discharged and is presently packing her belongings and awaiting my arrival. I will pop over there after work and pack her and her stuff into a taxi bound for home, thus ending this phase of the odyssey that began in the pre-dawn hours of a week ago Monday.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the best-case scenario called for her to come home last Thursday, but a series of setbacks conspired to repeatedly push her release date back. Suffice it to say that these issues appear to be resolved, and CC is chomping at the bit to get home and continue her convalescence in an environment over which she has more control.

Our cat Puck has been inconsolable in recent days. Oh, he likes me okay, but he also makes it plain that he is merely settling for my comfort until such time as Mommy returns. Cy, on the other hand, seems to not even be aware that anything is amiss, as he has always been devoted primarily to me. Personally, though, I think Cy has more regard for CC than he lets on, and I think everyone will be happy to see her come through the front door tonight!
