The Philadelphia Story

So, we are back from Philadelphia, and Drew is recovering from surgery.  He's doing well.

This time around we took my Prius C instead of his Caravan.  His car is far more comfortable, of course, but he's not permitted to drive as he recovers...and my car gets incredible gas mileage.  I made it to Philly and back on a single tank of gas, and the car has a 9 gallon tank.  Can't complain.  And may I say again how much I love EZ-Pass?    Though the traffic in Brooklyn I could do without.

We stayed at the same hotel as when we were there in April.  But now it's summer, more tourists.  There were three family reunions going on this weekend, which meant mobs of people ...the one time I wanted to use the pool I felt like I was intruding on a private party.

Walking through the Old City ... I saw three different Boy Scout troops, each being led about by a man in full colonial garb.

Of course, I spent far too much time at Temple University Hospital.  Great doctors, great nurses, everyone was wonderful, and took good care of Drew.  

Hopefully the surgery produces the results we want.

Time will tell.

Wishing Drew a speedy recovery, and good results. Been too many years since I was to Philly, and it was actually to visit one of the hospitals there (not me, but a family member).
