Just a quick update. Yesterday my doctor decided to do a “little bedside test” to get a better reading on the state of my bones. It was indeed bedside, and it was indeed done with just a local anesthetic, but I guess it wasn’t a very powerful one. Hoo boy, did that hurt, and naturally I was a total baby about it. In any case, they want to keep me here for at least another day to make sure I didn’t get infected etc. Also, today I get my first monthly dose of some bone-strengthening med whose name escapes me. So it looks like it’ll be tomorrow at the earliest before I go home. It depends on how I’m doing and what the doctor gods decree. But I walked 300 feet this morning without too much trouble, so that has to be a positive sign, doesn’t it?

When will blogging recommence? I’m not sure. In the meantime, though, enjoy a bonus cat.
