Well, I wasn't allowed to take him home, so I took him out for lunch!
We got a day pass and I took him over to the shopping centre for a subway lunch.
Took the kids to visit him this afternoon, and bumped into Mum and Dad as we were leaving. SO they had a quick visit with him, and then took the kids home, leaving me the opportunity for a longer visit! So that was lovely. And all is looking good for his release tomorrow.
