For some reason I haven't been able to get myself to bed at a decent hour on either of the last two evenings, but that's gonna change tonight. So tired.

Paid some bills yesterday, did a little Christmas shopping today, and will finish the rest of it at the last minute, as is's not like I have a lot of folks to pick things up for, after all. Because of my doctor's appointment, I punted lunch prep this morning - just as well, barely had time to fix & eat breakfast - and so wound up grabbing a pastrami sub at the deli co-located with the Kaiser offices, since I'd spent half the day there anyway...

Yeah, almost four hours blown on what should have been a 20-minute appointment. Dr. L was overbooked and I got bumped in favor of some seasoned citizens on top of that. I would have liked to have known so I could go up and talk to Member Services instead of twiddling my thumbs for two hours, but it was not to be. At least the appointment went well - Doc is very pleased with the results of the hospital stay, which include a drop in weight from 420 to 408. The wound on the left leg is 99% dried up, and the right leg's ulcer is drastically reduced to the point where a 4x6 ABD pad covers it nicely with room to spare. Nurse irrigated both wounds with saline and then wrapped them back up.

Felt really tired on the way home and opted for Popeye's in lieu of home cooking; perhaps it was instant karma, but they shorted me my rice & beans. :argh:

Time to shoot up and fall down now, I think.
