Day three in St Louis–into which we were able to fly after all, tornado damage notwithstanding.

Yesterday spent mostly at Children’s Hospital w baby Henry for consults. Our motel is within walking distance. Today, maybe to Botanical Gardens before rains come back tomorrow.

Typing very awkward in casted left hand; cast comes off in less than 2 weeks!

I feel I have lost my voice not being able to type freely. I have far more to say than my fingers can get to the keyboard. Soon, perhaps.

  2. Prayers for Henry and his folks coming from here too. These days I know firsthand the heartache that the illness of a grandchild brings.
