Ok. So I'm still working on my grant, and I'm hoping to finish for the weekend. My mom called and said my grandfather fell and the ambulance had to come for him. They took him to the emergency room and they did some x-rays and found that he broke his hip. So he's going to have surgery tomorrow. Then they're going to move him someplace where they can take better care of him. Currently, he's living with my grandmother, but he has late stage parkinson's disease, so it's been really hard on her. I just feel so bad for her because they haven't been apart in as long as I've been alive. She's still very high functioning and in very good health. It will destroy her if he has to stay there for the long term.
I really want to go home and see everyone, even though I know there isn't anything that I can specifically do to make things better, it just makes ME feel better, you know? But I can't because of this grant. I really have to be on campus to work on it. And I've put so much effort into this, and this is the last time I can submit at this point in my career that I really need to give it my all... I just don't want to be here anymore.
