Music to a Bubbie's ears: the ding of a text message saying "Nothing but good news. We're going home." Followed by a phone call with familiar acoustics and a baby crying in the foreground. "Poor puppy, she's not feeling well?" "Oh no, that's her normal crying. She just wants the phone." So all is on the mend, and we are grateful for normal, not to mention superlative, no-wait health care in a high-tech children's hospital minutes from home, paid for by the income taxes everyone grumbles about. Can someone tell me why this couldn't work in the US?
