We postponed our visit to Kathy's brother Tom in the hope of resting up and also not wanting to infect Tom.
We stayed one more night at the Doubletree near the Tampa Airport. It's a pleasant spot with generous Diamond benefits, including a free evening appetizer in the sports bar and a full buffet restaurant.
Today we drove down to Bonita Springs, only to learn that Tom and Ellyn are fighting off colds as well.
We shared an abbreviated visit, punctuated by a great mid-day meal featuring steak, lobster, twice-baked potatoes, and green beans.
Tonight we're lodged in a brand-new Hampton Inn about a 15-minute drive from Tom.
We're all looking forward to waking up healthy tomorrow.
