Security: Public

Going to the clinic in a little over an hour. Mom and Dad will pick me and fjm up at 8. My appointments start at 8:30.

In describing many of the processes of my healthcare to fjm (who is British), I find her croggled over and over at how we do things here in the United States. American exceptionalism probably makes conservatives smile in their sleep, but it sure doesn't apply to our healthcare system. And I say this as one of the lucky ones with good insurance and a generous employer, being treated at a top-ranked medical institution.

Anyway, I will dropping off the blogosphere as the day goes by, though likely continuing my Twitter feed, at least intermittently. fjm will be blogging anything of significance from the infusion day, so if you're following my cancer adventures, might want to drop by her LiveJournal today.

Time for me to get ready, then get going, then get poisoned.

Do you think you'll oversee a ship launch today? Perhaps they will provide you with other, mighty entertainment?
