And last minute, looks like I can't.

Aged relative is now on oxygen and needs supervision. I thought I could get Visiting Nurses Association to look in on her this weekend for some of the time, but it looks not to be: the fax from the doctor's office never went through - not surprising, is there even a working fax machine left in the country?

If things change, miracles happen, or I grow desperate, I may show up unannounced.

In any case, I am looking forward to the next gathering and best regards to all.
