I’d like to tell you how beautiful Corfu is — but I can’t. I’d like to tell you about the sparkling waters — but I can’t.
I can tell you, however, that they’ve been very attentive at the clinic where my little Bookworm is having her appendix removed. She’s in surgery as I write this, so I’m keeping the chair warm in the waiting room, while Mr. Bookworm and my other little Bookworm grab some food.
For those of us accustomed to big shiny, urban American hospitals, the clinic is a little small and unsophisticated. Nevertheless, the surgeon has done many appendectomies, and the hospital is clearly au courant with sterile procedures.
For important practical reasons, the ambulatory little Bookworm and I will continue our journey while Mr. Bookworm remains at the clinic. I’ll keep sending DQ emails, although Corfu won’t be on the list of places included in my travelogue.
