Mayo Trip

Hello faithful readers (all one or two of you). It's time for a Mayo update.

I just returned from one of my quarterly visits to this mecca of medical care and the bottom line is good. Scan clear, bloodwork good, new cute nurse practitioner did the physical. Doesn't get much better. The only negatives were the long drives down and back and the down time at the clinic itself.

Oh, and the four attempts to find a vein for the CT dye. All of my veins are in deep hiding under the witness protection program. My arms look like I was attacked by a porcupine.

Now I am back and writing this from the ski hill where I patrol on Thursdays. It is bitterly cold which means we are doing most of our patrolling from inside the SP room. The only people on the hill are students from a large school group. So far this morning we have had one case of frost bite and one injured wrist on a snow boarder. Pretty typical for a weekday.

Trying to stay warm in Minnesnowta's icebox.
