Huge Changes at the Last Minute
Well, I managed to snag a relatively cheap roundtrip fare from Reno to Philly, leaving this coming Sunday and returning on the 29th, so I'm flying out. This is one of those cases where if I'm not there and something horrible happens, I'll never forgive myself; and if nothing horrible happens there, the worst that happens here is that my classes get thrown into slight chaos.
I'm scrambling around to cancel meetings and get class coverage, but I already spoke to my department chair, who's very sympathetic to family issues, and she was supportive.
My sister can probably pick me up at the airport, and there will be a car I can borrow when I'm there.
Mom's glad I'm coming, and was feeling better even before I booked the ticket. She says everyone at the hospital is so nice and friendly, and she enjoys having so many people to talk to.
I've got too much adrenaline in my system, though: must go swim now!
