Days like today, I just want to go home and curl up on the couch to knit...

Work has been stressful this week, cleaning up data in one database so we can build a new one, with a deadline of April 8. That's on top of everything else that I have to do. But the biggest thing is that my grandpa went into the hospital on Monday. He's been on periteneal dialysis since November, but just switched to a cycler at night 3 weeks ago. Since then, he's become weaker and weaker, and the doctors can't seem to figure out why. He's not in any pain and he's come off the oxygen (he's had emphysema for 15 years), but isn't gaining any strength back. He's not even able to pull himself up in bed or move his legs without help. Doctors have been putting him through test after test and can't figure out anything, but that's only when you can find anyone to talk to. Hospitals kind of suck sometimes. Not to mention its rainy and soggy outside, bad weather never helps anything.
On a good note, I got a delicious lunch from Noodles and Company. Japanese Pan Noodles with Sauteed Beef, yum! I don't know if it's good or bad that food is one of the few bright spots in today. I guess you gotta find joy in the small things... :-)
