I just heard the news about Granpa Tom this morning.
Rob, the team leader, told me as I was getting up. So he and I talked to Lt. Marrs and they've arranged for me to fly home and then return to the ship with the next rotation of people.
So I have quite a mix of feelings going on right about now. Excitement for another trip and the chance to visit, Sadness for Grumpa, Happiness for grumpa, I'm sure he's havin a good time :) Sadness because I won't be able to help out here in Dominican Republic, I'll get back just as they're packing up to move on to Antigua... So yeah!
