Waiting for my flight to Tokyo

I'm a little tired and cranky today.

Wishing all my long-time friends, and all the new and fascinating friends I've made in the past year, a happy Thanksgiving Day, and thank you all for your friendship! I have so much to be thankful for, that I feel a little overwhelmed by it all and find it hard to express in words. So, all I can really say is "thanks." 

Have a peaceful weekend...

My trip to Houston is postponed. I'm in insurance purgatory. I think I finally got it straightened out yesterday, but it was too late by then. Insurance in this country if effed up. Don't get me started on how disgusting it is to hear politicians and pundits call insurance "welfare."

On the bright side, my doctor said that given my prognosis and history to date, delaying my check-up until January is fine. So that's cool.

Back to work.

One Year of Blogging....

Hi friends and strangers.

I started this blog on November 13, 2009. Since then, I have had 16,705 visits to this site, from 10,402 individual users. An average of 44 visits each day, with an average of 18 new individual users each day. Why? Who knows. Many are friends or PMP patients looking for advice, or people researching M.D. Anderson. Lots of people searching for Uncle Pecos images, for some reason. Go figure.

Still never had a hit from the elusive 7th continent, Antarctica. But thanks to all you others for checking in occasionally. Back to Houston in a few days.
