[personal] Where I was last night

Sorry for the late postings today, but I spent almost six hours yesterday evening at the emergency room with a close family member (not [info]the_child). Everything was okay in the end, and the details aren't mine to recount here, but suffice to say it was a hell of a capper on the week of cancer roller coaster craziness. As a result, I got to bed quite late, slept quite late this morning, and have been badly off the rhythms of my day.

All that being said, I am feeling reasonably good today. Just worn out. Regular wit and erudition will resume tomorrow.
