We are home.
We did indeed arrive at the Hospital early in the morning, and we were (literally) the last patient out of the Clinic in the afternoon.
We left Hospital City after 4:00 pm, and arrived home at around Midnight. For those of you keeping score at home, just under 400 miles in 7 hours, 44 minutes. The minivan got around 19 mph.
We are scheduled to go back, and do it all again in three weeks.
More after I sleep.
