These are what’s important to me these days: my crutches, my flip flops, my mosquito spray.
Actually, I am doing much better. I can now walk fairly easily with crutches, although I haven’t tried steps yet.
The friars here in the General Curia are on retreat this coming week. (That means no talking at meals and everyone occupied during the day.)
I, therefore, am flying back to BWI next Saturday on British Airways by way of Heathrow. I have an appointment at Georgetown on the 14th, and then an appointment with the surgeon on the 21st.
The weather here in Rome continues to be very nice. I can’t go out much, but I can open my window (the Italians would be shocked) and at least enjoy it from here.
God bless you, brother. I see that our prayers are being answered. So you must be here already Please let me know if I can do anything — trips to the doctor, holding your hand in the hospital, whatever. Remember I am now retired… My phone # is 301-577-7852 and 301-806-6119
Mary Clarke had her recent broken ankle surgery at Gtown. She may be able to give you some hints. Peace, and take care!
I’m glad to hear you are feeling better and will be heading home soon.
