He extended his trip. He was only going for 5 or 6 weeks but has extended it by a few weeks. I was really upset to hear that as I miss him so much.
To begin with, I found it hard to deal with, but have now realised that it's not only me that misses him over here in Australia, his mother, family and friends have also missed him for the last 5 years! He hasn't seen any of them for almost 5 years, so he deserves to spend time back with them.
His grandmother is still very ill, and at 97 years old, this will be the last time he gets to see her. Another friend has just been diognosed with a massive brain tumor so the chances of her pulling through are very slim, so this will possibly be the last time he sees her too.
It's a very bitter/sweet trip for him. Emotions all over the place, for all of us. I just wish I could have gone along with him to support him.
I'm hoping to have him home within the next couple of weeks. Things are breaking down in the house! 1st the dishwasher and then the toilet bowl filled with water on the weekend and wouldn't go back down! I was up to my armpitts in toilet water.
