Owen ended up in the hospital right after Thanksgiving. The stress from my grandparents contributed to him to have an anxiety attack.
It's Christmas today and it didn't feel real without him here. I missed his presence at the "kid's" table, even his relentless teasing. I guess he didn't feel like putting on the act this year- the act that he's okay and the same animated person. The fact is that he's not. He's floundering in his life right now and my grandparents point that out at every opportunity.

I can't say I blame him for not making the trip.
