Surgery is finished. Reconstruction is finished. Tonight is critical: if nothing happens to restrict blood flow to the reconstruction it should all be easy, or at least less worrisome. Amazing the things they can do these days. Thank you again for all of your prayers and good wishes.
I am staying in New York with a friend of some thirty years. She is the mother of one of Robin’s college roommates. The girls spent a summer backpacking through Europe and Phyllis and I became friends. Over the years we’ve spent a lot of time taking photographs together. Phyllis is still working at it while I have downgraded to snapshots. But we both enjoy wandering around New York and visiting museums. Phyllis lives in a huge apartment in one of those great old art deco buildings on the upper West Side. I’m enjoying the space and the luxury of it all when I’m not at the hospital.
