Hooray for Lola!
If you've read about the exploits that occurred yesterday, you may be wondering what happened to Kuya and Dodong while Sweetie stayed with Old Grump at the hospital? Simple: they spent the night with Lola.
It worked out well for everyone! Kuya and Dodong behaved, went to bed on time, and slept well. Lola even managed to get a little sleep, especially when Sweetie wasn't calling her asking how the kids were doing!
Sweetie got a few hours sleep, and Grump slept from 5:00 am to 6:30 am, at which point he awakened Sweetie so she could go home and drive Kuya to school. While Sweetie was gone the doctors came to check on Grump, and told him some great news; he could go home today!
When Sweetie got back to the hospital Grump told her the good news, and the two of them then just waited for the various discharge paperwork to be complete. Now nothing in the emergency room happens quickly, so it an hour or so before the paperwork was done, and Grump and Sweetie were able to leave. They got home a bit before lunch.
And that was pretty much it for the day. Sweetie did have to go pick up Kuya from school in the afternoon, and then get Grump's pain medication at the pharmacy, but other than that we mostly just lay about and rested from the stress of yesterday.
Lola made dinner, and it was delicious, being some sort of rice and noodle dish with a type of fish Sweetie had purchased at one of the filipino markets in Warner Robins this past Sunday.
After dinner Grump started to feel the pain of his cuts, and Sweetie started to feel the strain of losing too much sleep, so there was a lot of complaining, fussing, and snarling going on in the house, so we all decided to go to bed early.
