Just a quick posting.
My step-mum is going to be sent home from hospital NEXT WEEK!
Of course she'll have round-the-clock care with a live-in carer - because there are many things she can't do for herself and it will be a hard process for her to be out of hospital - but FINALLY she can be in her own space. And I guess that finally too she can do the real grieving for her husband, because once she is in their home surrounded by all their memories and things - I think his death will be a big reality for her.
And I just booked an airticket for England. January 1 to 9...surprisingly JAL had the best deal....because I have to fly down to Tokyo first, so the Japanese airlines can do the domestic leg cheapest.
Back to work.
