Blargh I am dead!

Good morning and kerchoo.  I have a cold.  I am rather relishing it, because while I am too sick to go to work (something about needing a nap after walking from the door to your desk limits your productivity), and I am not too sick to appreciate laying on the couch, knitting and reading.  So […]

A bunch of patients sitting around, waiting for doctors […]

What happened?

Oh, sweet, nectar-like irony. Remember in the last post I mentioned I would bet a bottle of red they wouldn’t find anything wrong with me when I did the blood tests? I was so wrong that it was ludicrous. I failed the blood test. Gave them some blood on Monday morning, as well as a […]
