The Duchess and I are profoundly touched by and grateful for the many gracious, sympathetic responses to my recent health troubles that necessitated in-hospital treatment. This experience did provide a couple of healthcare tips, which I now share with readers:
Healthcare Tip #1: If you anticipate a medical crisis that will require a 911 admission to a major medical center, say, for example, Duke University Hospital in North Carolina, via the Emergency Department, it would be best — trust me on this — to somehow schedule said crisis for any time other than a cold Saturday evening during an infectious disease pandemic.
Healthcare Tip #2: If you foresee a medical crisis that may require hospitalization, it would be best to choose an outstanding medical center, say, for example, Duke University Hospital in North Carolina, with an incredibly kind, caring, gracious, and skillful nursing staff.)
In any case, I have now been discharged to convalesce at home. While not my most significant problem, exhaustion, caused in unknown proportions by the underlying disease, its treatment, and the hospitalization itself, is assuredly the most acute. Any future posting depends on the rate of my recovery and my energy levels;
Finally, I am – once again – astonished by and thankful for the ministrations of The Duchess aka Penny Showalter. It will surprise no one who knows her that she has been superlative in caring for me and organizing my life. She is a gem.

I would hope so; Leonard might quit humming if you stayed away tooooo long.
(I pretend he wrote The Song for me; it’s the line “….you know that she’s half crazy…”. that caught me.” Good healing to the Showalters)
Sorry to hear about your medical emergency, but very happy that you are on the mend and at home again under Penny’s care.
Be well soon.
I’m relieved to hear you’re back home. Wishing you a speedy recovery and sending you positive thoughts.
We may now creep slowly back toward our NORMAL lives – with a resounding ♪ P H E E E W ! ! ♪ ☺☺☺
Best news I’ve read in quite a while.
And let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb
Happy to hear that you are on the mend! Hopeful that you recover quickly! Thankful that you have the Duchess to ensure that you behave!
All I can say is Hallelujah! Good to have you back in cyberspace. Hope convalescence is not too taxing for you with all that pampering you have to endure 😅.
All good things,
I’m so pleased to know that you are back home and being well looked after. Your regular posts have been very much missed.
Hoping that you soon recover your full strength and energy,
So relieved you are recovering. Just think of yourself and take all the time you need to get well again.

Refua shlema (complete recovery) and all good things!
