Since Mrs. Washingtons stern but loving therapy cured Sam Horowitz of the effects of his stroke, the two have been good and close friends. During one of their social evenings Mrs. Washington detects that, cut off from family, with friends either dead or moving to warmer climes, Horowitz is lapsing into a lonely depression, which for a man his age can be dangerous, if not fatal. She determines that he needs a new interest in life. And that the new interest should be grandfathering: taking care of neonatal infants who for one reason or another are hospitalized and need love, care, and physical contact with another human being from their first days, lest they fail to thrive and even die in infancy. It takes considerable maneuvering for Mrs. Washington to persuade Horowitz to entertain the idea. And considerable diplomacy on her part to have the hospital accept him and his peculiar sensitivity. Being Horowitz, he soon develops a strong affection for the babies. And being Horowitz, he soon becomes overzealous in their protection and breaks the hospital rules. Which calls upon all of Mrs. Washingtons skill and pressure to handle and calm the hospital hierarchy and have him accepted back on the baby service. But in her shrewd wisdom, Mrs. Washington has in mind a super plan for her dear friend Sam Horowitz. And that is the rest of the touching, amusing, delightful story of Mrs. Washington and Horowitz, Too.
