On Friday, I drove up to Dallas with my parents to help take care of my grandfather Lorn, who was having his pacemaker replaced. He recovered from the surgery quickly and was in good spirits.
I accidentally bumped into his chest where the new pacemaker was installed, and he joked that I was trying to kill him. We then posed for a photo to commemorate the joke!
My grandfather and I have always had a special connection because we're both scientifically-inclined and both love music. So it's nice to get a chance to spend time with him, even if just for a day.
We had a good time visiting.
On the trip, I also had an opportunity to visit with my grandmother Etha and my aunt Melanie.
My cousin Mark was also there. He has been a real help to my grandparents over the past years. Thanks, Mark!
