It's hard to believe that we have been in New York for three weeks. Being away from our home, our friends, and our life in Reston has been difficult, but we are lucky for everything we have up here. Patients come from all over the world to seek treatment from David's surgeon at Sloan-Kettering. While David was in the hospital I met a man who traveled from Hong Kong; his insurance will not cover any of his treatment in the United States. We are fortunate to have both family and friends in New York that made our temporary displacement comfortable, affordable, and as much as it could be, somewhat enjoyable. Tonight David and I will bunk with Max one last time and tomorrow return home to open pounds of mail and put Max to sleep in his own, real crib.
