#amwriting Home away from home office at Inova Fairfax



#amwriting Home away from home office at Inova Fairfax

When it comes to writing, history does not take into consideration difficulty.

April 6, 2017 #amwriting KED

Last year, in January, February, and March of 2016, when a family member was very sick at Inova Fairfax Hospital just outside of Washington DC, in northern-Virginia, I was writing my columns on the fly. I wrote one in the car in the parking garage, in the cold. I wrote them in the passenger seat of the car while Caroline drove.

However, many of them – most of them, were written in the middle of the night at an out of the way dining area deep in the bowels of the Inova Fairfax Hospital.

As an aside, I have visited hospitals literally all over the world. And in spite of the fact that Inova Fairfax is a ginormous hospital, it was an exceptionally nice hospital. The staff was very accommodating and definitely in the customer service business. And oh, I just looked-up the hospital to make sure that I spelled it correctly and I see where the wait time in the ER, at the moment, is “12 mins.” Just saying…. Hmmmm http://www.inova.org/patient-and-visitor-information/facilities/inova-fairfax-hospital/index.jsp

Anyway, I just ran across this picture…. And I thought I would share it. In the center, at the table with the coffee cup, up against the back wall, was my home away from home office for weeks. April 6, 2017 #amwriting
