I miss you, Grandad...

Well yesterday was our happy day and today is our sad day.

2 years ago today, my grandad passed away from Alzheimers. Yes, it happened the day after the adoption was finalized. It was a decision I struggled with about whether or not to postpone it (we knew that it was getting close, but did not know it would happen the next day), but I'm glad I didn't. Looking back, it wouldn't have changed anything, and it was a definite bright spot in that time.

I so wish D had been able to know him. He saw him a few times, but my grandad was already so far gone that they didn't "know" each other. And that makes me sad. My grandad was a good man with a big heart, and even though we drove each other nuts having the same personalities (we butted heads a lot), I loved him so much.

Today is D's surgery to get his tonsils/adenoids out. He did fine with it and spent his day laying on the couch watching Dora. He did throw up once due to the anesthesia reaction, and is in some pain, but otherwise is ok.
