It had been 3 weeks since Gail and I were in Durham to visit Tricia, Gwyneth and Nathan. In fact, at our last visit Tricia was still in the hospital. So we made time this week to get away and drove up yesterday afternoon.
Gail was chompin' at the bit to hold the baby. And I have to say it is cool to just sit beside her and watch her with Gwyneth. She's wanted to be a grandma now for several years, just patiently waiting. Me? I was in no hurry to be anyone's grandfather, much less to sleep with someone's grandmother. But I've come around!
Gwyneth has changed significantly in the last 3 weeks, really filling out and looking like she's ready to go home! Her nurse says she has quite the set of vocal cords, too.
So we're here another day, likely driving home Friday morning. It appears life has changed for us in a very positive way.
I understand later today we're going to Babys R Us for some shopping. Is that really part of the deal?
