: That nice, monotonous rhythm you hear is mine. I’m back.
: Ed Cone says: “at least nobody can accuse you of being heartless….” Now if I get brainwave arhythmia….
: Thanks for all your nice notes, folks. This really is no big deal. Just explaining absences. But I appreciate it.
: UPDATE: I just got a call from Dr. James Itzcovitz, the ER doctor who took care of me last night and had to suffer through my Consumer Reports mode as a patient as I tried to figure out the care instructions he was getting from another doctor. I had an out-of-body experience and at one point said to myself, “This is when the patient decides to take control of his care.” The good doctor just said I was a “memorable patient.” I think that’s his very nice was of saying I was an ass. Sorry, Doctor. But the good doctor was good: patient, intelligent, open. Thank you, Doctor.
