...over the next several days. I'm down in North Carolina with my parents.
Dad is doing surprisingly well, considering, and Wake County Hospice seems to be a very competent and squared-away set of folks.
Mom had emergency surgery over the Labor Day weekend for a collapsed vertebra. (The procedure she had performed, called "kyphoplasty," was actually the subject of a major New York Times article about a week ago.)
Anyway, they were overdue for a check-in visit from me.
I don't blog about work, as a general rule, but I want to share this with you: my employer has generously agreed to let me work one week a month from Raleigh, starting in October. So part of the time I'm spending down here is getting a decent home office set up to work from.
This accommodation from my employer is going to make my life, and my mom and dad's lives, a lot easier... and it's not something I'll soon forget.
