At about 6:00 this morning, Tinalynne hugged me goodbye and headed for the airport with Lou and John.
We had a long tearful goodbye last night, so this morning we had agreed to have a light "Safe journey" type of goodbye.
Spending two full days with Tinalynne was super awesome. Lots of laughs, some tears, and some amazing memories.
Plus it gave me a chance to give her a few things that I wanted her in particular to have. We laughed at the idea that she could ever need a thing to remember me by, which is pretty silly, but it just makes me happy to think of her using certain things in her daily life.
I loved being able to talk about her new social worker job, which is not so new any more. Tinalynne is really good at ferreting out what is wrong with you (not exactly the politically correct way to describe her skill set) so being a social worker and therapist is perfect for her.
After they left for the airport, I went back to sleep for hours. And I'm crawling into bed again now. I think I just have to rest after an exciting two days.
Part of the exhaustion is emotional, I'm sure. You'll notice I'm not giving a lot of detail about what we discussed and how I felt. I do feel supported and loved in my choice to go to hospice, I'll give you that much.
