6 Days

I go back to work in 6 days. Yuck. I will work for one normal week (all day Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and afternoons Tuesday and Thursday). Then it's conference week. So I'll work Monday and Tuesday and then it's Gatlinburg for 5 days.

Yep, she told me for sure that I'm set for Gatlinburg. I have an 11:45 chair time on Saturday. It's the only time I'll need dialysis while we're down there. I'll just miss one afternoon of Shattuck-family-fun and be back for dinner. Not bad, I guess. I'm just glad to be able to get out of Dodge for a while.

Mr. B

Mr. B is a man in my pod. A week ago he just wasn't himself. He was talking about the helicopters outside his window (they were apparently blue and red and black). THEN, he talked about the rattle snakes here in the Unit. He looked at me and said, "You're still here? The gorillas haven't gotten you yet?" And he hasn't been back for a while. I guess he had pneumonia and when he has an infection he goes a little nutty. I'm glad he's back to normal.
