Since everything that happened in the beginning of the month, Ami, Logan and I have been in Phoenix, while Logan’s been at Banner. It’s a good hospital, I have friends who work there.
Dr. Tharakan, my good friend from Argon, recommended we move Logan to Banner Health, once he was stabilized and we all could be certain we had our information correct. Nobody (perhaps especially Logan) wants to give the Cavern away at this point, but Logan did need a full service hospital. Adrien was fine with caring for him at the Argon Medical Facility, but he really thought it’d be better for Logan in the long run, since from there, we can get him the other medical help he needs.
At the moment, it looks like Christmas will be here at my home in Phoenix. Grandmum is coming down next week and we plan to have a quiet holiday. Logan is most likely going to be released next week as well, so he can convalesce at home with Ami, Molly and I, which I think he will enjoy. He’s improved remarkably, enough so that Adrien remarked to me, “well, maybe he is D’ni, somewhere along the line”. Of course our tests show he’s about as human as I or Adrien, so…
I’d like to Relto in to the Cavern for a few of the holiday events, and will try, if I can get the time. Logan and Ami both agreed they’d rather not go back to the Cavern just yet. I don’t really know if Ami ever will be comfortable going back. She doesn’t talk much about it now that we’ve been in the city. She’s been spending most of her time with her family, when she hasn’t been at Hospital with Adrien and I.
I think she’s comfortable at my house, I’ve made sure it’s a comforting space to come back to and curl up in, when she needs to.
She’s a very nice young lady and I have enjoyed having her visit. She helps out quite a bit, even though I have told her she doesn’t need to help clean or cook… I think she’s just working out anxious energy, so I’ve let her have the run of the place. Since I’ve been in Cavern, I closed the house up for the most part and only had a service come in every month or so to dust and look after the yard.
Of course with Ami there, the place hasn’t been cleaner in a long time!
Adrien is staying in town for now, Argon is usually pretty quiet around the end of the year, so he’s relocated to his place in Scottsdale. I’m in Surprise, so it’s a bit of a drive for Adrien to come see us, but I don’t think he minds. He’s been showing his fiance, Lily, around Phoenix, when he’s not camped out at hospital.
Lily hasn’t been to a big city in a long time and oddly, she’s never been to Phoenix. I think the biggest city she has ever been to is Flagstaff! So it’s an experience for her as well. And Phoenix in December… it’s really a pretty place to be. Cool and sparkling with lights. It’s a great time to explore.
