Members of my family share a challenging personality trait -- when we do not eat, we get really grumpy (to put it mildly).
Everyone (my father and mother, and my brother and his family) was scheduled to arrive at the end of Tisha B'Av, after fasting and a 24 hour flight with small children!
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
Dear Mr. Surgeon,
