Duck Soup

I feel removed from what's happening in the family. I've been away from DC since Friday, and during that time my brother's condition has remained critical although he is currently stable.

The last couple of days have had a surreal quality. I've been talking to family and hospital nurses. between square dance tips. The different parts of my life that I really do try to keep separate are colliding. Add to that I am also talking with the same family members about a spring family reunion, and I wonder what planet I'm on. I've wandered into a strange place, and it's going to stay this way for a while.
