Quick grandkid update...

First the good news: Riley is ready to be discharged!

Second, the bad news: They want to discharge Riley.

To fill those of you in who aren't following on Facebook, yesterday Darci started having really bad breathing issues. Ryan took her to the Redwood City ER and they decided to admit her. Since Riley was already down in Santa Clara, Kaiser took Darci down there to be together with him, simplifying grandkid management issues.

So she got a ride in an ambulance too - just like her brother! (She has been extremely jealous of him getting all this attention, and had asked me when it would be her turn to go to the hospital. There was no way to convince her that it wasn't exactly the same as going to Disneyland.)

In any case, they are ready to discharge Riley, but the logistics are getting complicated. If they discharge him, they can't give him any more medication, and he needs regular treatments. Darci is better, but at the earliest won't get discharged until this evening, maybe tomorrow morning.

In any case, things are looking up, if a bit cockeyed. I'll post more later once things work their way out.

That's it - move along...

Well, obviously there is more to this story, unless Darci is making it up. And how can Ryan take Darci to the hospital? Ryan is only five years old.

OK, that's a joke. But I do wonder why your beautiful grandkids keep going to hospitals. Don't they know these are not nice places?
