Saturday. Rob and I departed Hope Lodge bright and early. Rob had to get his blood work done at the lab in the NYU Cancer Center. He’s so glad that the nurse can draw his blood from the medi port, which avoids the whole stuck-in-the-arm scenario. Then we ate lunch at a good spot just across the street.
The highlight of the afternoon was going to see the apartment which will be our new address soon. Rob had only seen pictures. He seems very pleased with his new room, etc. We walked out on the rooftop patio (34th floor) to see the great view.
So many blessings! I am humbled and so grateful. For example: the staff at the Hampton Inn, where Jim and I stayed for ten days, were all so caring and concerned for the situation which has brought us to the city. They went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable. On Thursday afternoon when we arrived with Rob, just out of the hospital, there was a basket in our room for him. It was filled with bottled waters, packages of oreos, and chex mix packets, along with a thoughtful “welcome & wishes for a speedy return to health” note — SO thoughtful of them!
Also, it is interesting that some of the more difficult details to figure out have been — shall I say it? — miraculously working out. Humble and grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lord.
