As a pleasant aside to the unpleasant news (previous message, below), Patty seems to be better today than she was the past two days. She still has chest congestion, and isn't especially energetic, but she just seems a bit more animated than she was over the weekend. We take what we can get, most days...
We ran an errand to the bank together this morning, and then stopped for a burger and a shake at Johnny Rocket's, which just recently opened near our home. While we were there, I snapped the photo to the right; I really like it, although you can imagine Patty's excitement in seeing the camera emerge from under the table.
Now, I have to get back to work, and our patient is relaxing (and perhaps snoozing--I haven't checked) on the sofa.
