The Cavalry deployed to Tampa

The Castros in Tampa have had a bad time. Elizabeth contracted laryngitis last week; Afonso had knee surgery on Friday; and worst of all, little Alexander had a serious viral infection that presented with high fever and some sort of neurological episodes which scared us all. So, Tom and I left home on Sunday and plan to be here until Friday, when we leave to meet our friends in Apalachicola for a fun weekend.

So, no recent posts, and this is just to say that the Castros are on the mend. After neurological tests and a consult with a neurologist, Alexander was pronouned free of any major neuro problem, but his little body is ravaged by a week of fever. He is slowly getting his strength back. We have provided little except moral support---which is what parents do. More later.

I'm so glad to hear Alexander is better. Tell Elizabeth and Afonso we have been thinking about them. We'll give them a call this weekend to check in.
