REAL LIFE

Well, life intercedes.  This will be a purely personal post.  Trump will just have to wait.  Yesterday, I had to take my wife, Susie, to our doctor here in Paris.  I managed to get a 5:15 pm appointment, and after examining Susie, the doctor sent her to the emergency room of the Val de Grace Hospital, just off Boulevard Montparnasse.  While she was in being seen, I rushed home and rearranged our plane reservations so that we could travel home tomorrow, February 15th.  It turns out to have been something of a false alarm, but I am taking no chances, so we shall cut short our stay and come home so that Susie can be seen by her doctor in Chapel Hill.

It is of course super scary to deal with any medical problem in a foreign country, but the emergency room people were friendly, helpful, and in general made the experience as pleasant as could be expected.


Oh yes, one more thing, but do not tell anyone in the United States about this:  the visit to the emergency room was free.

I hope that your wife's medical problems are not serious and that she will soon be restored to good health.

Happy to see the words "false alarm." Whatever the problem, godspeed to Susie on the road to a quick recovery.
