The Snowager Duchess and El Polito Pio

It is beyond freezing here! It was down to 16F/–8C overnight (with a real feel of 8F/–13C). It’s still snowing, but I’m thankful it doesn’t appear to be amounting to much down here. And to think a few weeks ago we were complaining about the weather in Málaga.

FROM THE BALCONY THIS MORNING.
(CLICK TO SEE THE FALLING SNOW.)

I have to say it feels a lot warmer because San Geraldo is now here in New York. AND… the Dowager Duchess returned to Rehab Monday evening.

HAVING JUST BEEN “DETACHED” FROM ALL THE WIRES, THE DUCHESS CHECKS
TO SEE IF ALL THE STICKY TABS HAVE BEEN REMOVED.

It appears that there was no heart attack after all. Just a rapid heartbeat (tachycardia). She feels and looks great. When her cardiologist saw her Saturday morning, he told her the good news. But, it was a holiday weekend (Monday was Presidents’ Day), so it took until Monday afternoon to get the insurance approval for the return to Rehab.

The Duchess is currently exercising (physical therapy) and feeling great. San Geraldo and I have gotten off to a slow start today and will see her this afternoon. San Geraldo took The Kid Brother to “the racetrack” yesterday. Aqueduct Racetrack is about 20 minutes away. They opened a casino next door a little while back (I’ve written about it), but The Kid Brother likes to say he’s going to “the racetrack.” They called me at the end of the day to say they had just enough money for the car service home. The Kid Brother had told me he planned “to keep an eye on” San Geraldo. I guess I should have hired somebody to keep an eye on them both.

Just wanted to share the good news and thank you all for your warmth and generosity. I continue to read your comments and messages to The Dowager Duchess.

With thanks to Tere in Sevilla for sharing this video on facebook…


In honor of the Dowager Duchess’s continued sense of humor (as indicated by the permission she gave me to share the previous photo), here’s some music to make you laugh…*
