Grandpa's mental status seems to be varying from day to day. This morning he was mostly coherent, but also said a few things that didn't quite make sense. He's doing the therapy that is asked of him, but he's not happy about it. He has a roommate now and I don't know if that will be a good thing or not. We shall see. Not much we can do about it since Medicare makes the rules. If you want them to pay then you do what they say and they say that only semi-private rooms are covered. 
It is difficult to take Eleanor to see Grandpa because I feel like I spend the entire time trying to keep her wrangled and at an acceptable volume. You can imagine how easy that is. 
This girl sure is cute, though. I found a toddler sized Santa hat at Hobby Lobby and she was thrilled. 
Yesterday she ate guacamole for lunch... with a spoon. In between bites she would yell, "GUAC!" I felt like, for those few minutes, I had this parenting thing perfected! 
Since we've been shuffling rooms in preparation for the possibility of Grandpa living here, I've also had to move things that were hung on the wall. So that I wouldn't get that done and then feel the need to do it again, Drew gave me one Christmas gift early. Isn't it fabulous?! It's all of our birthdays and our wedding date. I love it!
