C.J. will spend a big chunk of the day with missista so that she doesn't have to be in the crate all day and I don't have to be running back and forth. Then my dad will come at the end of his work day and take Ista to spend a week with Mormor and Morfar. They enjoy each other's company, I don't have to drive myself nuts taking care of myself, timprov, and the dog without markgritter's help, and I don't have to ask as many people for favors as I otherwise might. (I know you're willing. But they really want to spend the week with her, and it's a lot easier this way.)
We will see what they say at the hospital and go from there. I'm behind on e-mail already and probably won't be catching up very consistently over the next few days, but that doesn't mean I don't like hearing from people. I appreciate it very much. We've just got a lot of stuff to handle right now.
