Home and hospitals

I have returned to beautiful Lobster Cove. I got the requested business class upgrade for the 18 hours in the air from Manila via Tokyo to Detroit.  In Detroit I found out that both Axel and my granddaughter were in the hospital. Both were being examined to determine why they weren’t well. Axel had a spell of something (but heart attack was ruled out) and Saffi was listless and had had diarrhea for several days. Sita and Jim were back again at the hospital they so detest but what else to do?

Axel was dismissed before I landed in Boston but Saffi is still a patient. The hospital won’t let newborns go home until they have gone through an entire list of tests, including spinal taps –as per lawyers’ instructions we suspect. So far, none of the test has been positive and she is looking better.

Tessa was summoned to Logan to pick me up – it’s good to have children look after their aging parents – and take me home. Axel rode along, dismissed from the hospital just about when I took off from Detroit.

We had a Chipotle take out meal. Axel made a margarita took accompany the meal, which I drank too quickly. Going to bed was a good thing to do anyways. I had gone through a 36 hour day compressed into one day: I got up at 4 AM in Manila, arrived at 4 PM in Tokyo and then again at 4 PM in Detroit. I tumbled into bed at 9:30 PM and slept until deep into the morning. It is wonderful to be home.
