Still Still in Reno
Dad's been pronounced stable enough to travel, and the cardiologist in SF has formally accepted him. I was at the hospital when these things happened this morning, and the very nice ICU doc said, "Are you ready to go? You need to be ready."
So I raced home, finished packing, and calculated how late we could leave and still have light getting across the mountains.
All to no avail, because a bed never opened up. The day nurse told Dad he'd probably go next week. The night nurse told him he'll go whenever a bed becomes available (which could mean tomorrow or over the weekend, theoretically).
Que sera sera, but this "hurry up and wait" business is becoming very draining.
