4500 miles

4500 miles is a long way, but until now it seemed more of an inconvenience really.  Nine and a half hours in an aeroplane, hundreds of complete strangers, noisy, smelly, dry-aired and tedious.  Forgotten as soon as it's over.
But today, right now, after a simple text - "I'm going in" - 4500 miles is heart-wrenchingly too far.  My brother ( has been rushed into hospital,  I sit and wait here, while he lies and waits there.
The Florida sunshine can offer no comfort today.
