My grandpa is now in the hospital after yesterday's fall, and he seems to be improving. He had to get a lot more stitches and staples in his head (in addition to the ones he got the first time they let him fall out of the bed). He also broke his collarbone and now has to wear a sling (in addition to the neck brace he's in for the vertebrate he broke the first time they let him fall out of bed). So all of that kind of sucks, but it's good to know he's perking up a bit and doing ok.
He'll be in the hospital for at least several days. After that, my mom and grandma got everything done so that he can go to a different facility that we are pretty confident will provide better care. We're all definitely happy about this.
Next, my foot is feeling considerably better today. I definitely feel good that I've been taking it easy the past day or two. I'm going to go on and give it at least another day or two before I run again just to be on the safe side. You can also rest assured that I'll be wearing flats to the wedding I'm attending on Saturday night. I'm going to be passing on the heels at least until I get this next marathon behind me.
Finally, I realize I haven't said much about Halloween. Ultimately, I had one of the best Halloween's I've had since college. I attended a party with friends on Friday, and then I attended a bonfire with friends on Saturday before spending a little time at a fun little bar in Nashville. Let me tell you... I think it is so super fun to people watch on Halloween in public. It is SO interesting to see what kind of costumes other people wear.
I've posted pictures on Facebook, so if you're my friend you can check them out on there. But since I know most of you aren't on there, I'll share one photo of me in my costume that I wore on Saturday. (Yes, I had two costumes, because that's the way I roll.) In case it's not obvious, I went as a saloon girl from the wild, wild west. I used Carrie Underwood's "Cowboy Casanova" video as my inspiration. :)
