Margalit's kids are home alone. Margalit is back in the hospital to try to figure out why she keeps having to go into the hospital. Of course, what was supposed to have been 2 days at a major Boston hospital has now been extended to 8-9 days. But the Boy and the Girl have been by themselves, with drop ins from lots of adults checking on them.
Ora can report that the house had not been destroyed and that the kids were not fighting with each other- although we won't talk about the pile of dirty dishes in the sink!
Even though Margalit's kids drive her absolutely crazy, they seem to have risen to the unfortunately more frequent occasion and are growing up. Wow.
Hopefully, she'll be released soon, with some answers. She is okay, but everything is just taking lots longer than it should. And while Margalit is luxuriating in the spa known as Brigham & Womens, she has had more than her share of bloggable moments, mostly centered on the elderly roommates that she has had to endure. It seems that if you are sick and old in the Boston area, you get a free pass to yell at any nurse or aide for any reason, preferably in a language other than English. Regardless of what your original language is the ability to understand simple compounds in English is beyond the capabilities of her roommates. The best was the Portuguese lady who didn't know that you had to push a button to answer the phone! Margalit will hopefully be back at full strength in the coming weeks. But meanwhile, the Boy and the Girl will continue to do her proud as they show their independence.
