Yes, I was at the clinic from 7:40 until about 11:30 this morning, then my wife and I partook of a Mongolian grill and kicked around the Rochester mall for a few hours before my 4:00 appointment (which turnesd out to be 5:15) .

Thank you for your well wishes. I really appreciate it. And no, I don't think it will be a MINOR footnote, but a footnote nonetheless. I'll use it as a stepping stone for bigger and better things. How's that?

Val I'm glad that it's "only" this form of cancer, but on the other hand I know this isn't easy for you or your family. You know we wish you all the best. If you need anything, we're here.

And I hope both your employer and insurance company both make this easy for you.

I know your time under the bar has taught you to push through pain, and I know you will. Just remember that you have one hundred spotters here at MAB ready to help should your battle not go as planned.

And heck, if you're sitting on your butt for two weeks, and merely need someone to mow the lawn...give me a call. I'll make sure Jason Slepica is there within the hour!

Seriously though, get well quickly.

Thanks, BTB. And a big thank you to jslep for coming to mow my lawn. I shall add to his reputation for that. I'm going to mow it this weekend, then it probably won't NEED it again until the next time it reaches 105 degrees.

Insurance companies are what they are. I'm sure it won't be easy, and I'm sure there will be more than a few frustrations on that front. But at least we're not yet in the full face of Obamacare. As far as the employer goes, well I've been trying to transition out mf my position since mid May. I think this will expedite the process a bit. All the pieces have been in place for the move to happen for a couple of weeks now, it is a complicated National League "triple switch," involving three supervisors, none of whom want to make the first move. Now it looks like someone's hand has been forced.

I feel the love and support from the board. I'm glad to be part of this community. You folks are all great. If any of you ever found yourselves in this position, I'd be there for you too. I've kept more than a few of you in my prayers from time to time. Prayer counts for something. I'm a big believer.

I'll let you all know how it works out. If I have internet access at Methodist Hospital, I'll try to log on and update. If not, I'll make my wife join the forum and provide updates. This all goes down next Wednesday, July 21.

Hey they have a new green form of INTERNET. Carrier Pigeon. I have a pick up link next door. Maybe you can use that. But seriously we aren't going anywhere, you just worry about getting better. If I hear you are giving the nurses trouble I will roll down there and pop you in the knee caps.
