K's oldest brother scheduled a zoom video conference call with K's parents, her brother and his husband, and us today at 5:00 p.m. E was shy for the camera again just as he had been on the video conference call to my parents and with K's mom a few days ago. He is not often a shy one so it comes as a bit of a surprise. But both K and I think he's processing the changes that have meant that he is no longer able to meet with his grandparents (and that K's parents had to leave so suddenly). I don't think it's a stretch to call that shyness a form of grief.
But the visit overall was great. Everyone was in high spirits and everyone enjoyed playing with the different features of the video conference application and generally just seeing each other's faces and hearing each other's voices.
