Fasting and a New Career

Well, I’ve decided if I was going to write stories every week I would write about my new unintentional career. We can get to that in a minute, but first I think most of you are looking for an update.


After fasting Monday night including no fluids, in preparation for a Tuesday morning procedure, Elaine and I arrived at the outpatient portion of the hospital at 7:15 AM. (Get up, shower, drive one hour to the hospital, you do the math) Arriving at the hospital it was apparent something didn’t “smell” right. I was getting the runaround. (Not my favorite Blues Traveler song) I was getting the runaround where no one seems to know where I needed to be, and no one wanted to check me in.
