My sister Cambria flew in from San Francisco to just be around, be of service, etc. As Vernon finally asked for stronger medication, we left him to sleep and wandered around nearby Balboa Island, looking for lunch. It was a beautiful afternoon. We walked around the pier and caught some fresh sea air for a bit of change.
She’s now gone back to the hotel to meet up with my mom, who is bringing Justine up to hang out in the pool for a couple of hours. I’ll be heading over there soon. I miss that kiddo. I checked in with Maki earlier. He says he’s fine if I need to stay up here a few more days.
Vernon woke up long enough to feed himself ice cream.
And even this dripping it all over his blanket worked out…as someone just walked in with a gift from some of the people at my church: a prayer-knot blanket. He’s sleeping soundly again with fresh covering.
