Thursday was not what I expected the day to be like. Because of a medical emergency I started the day driving to the Nags Head Hospital. My daughter needed out-patient surgery. The procedure was routine, and she recovered quickly. David was there also, but he returned to Ocracoke in the afternoon so he could play with Molasses Creek for their Thursday evening performance. Amy and I stayed "up the beach" for a few hours just to make sure everything was OK, before driving back to Ocracoke.
We returned to the island yesterday evening, tired but well. Amy is recovering nicely. The inconvenience of not having a hospital nearby is a small price to pay for living in this very special place.
