Crossing my Fingers!

St. Vincents, the hospital near me, closed this morning. The place was crawling with news trucks. It’s sad. This was the hospital for 9/11. It was started by four nuns 160 years ago, in response to a cholera epidemic in New York, and well, it’s just plain sad that what they started has come to an end.

Also, I have a lot farther to go in case of emergency.
