Damn these a-fib attacks. They fall on me like a ton of bricks. Cardiologist is pushing me to consider the Watchman procedure so I don't have to continue on a blood thinner.

6 month CT scan yesterday showed a pocket of fluid building up where the head of the pancreas used to be. He doesn't think it's cancer, but the blood work will confirm that as soon as it's processed. Even if the blood work comes up clean, he wants another CT scan and blood work in 3 months. So, I sit and wait. I don't want to do any a-fib procedure until I see if this problem gets resolved.

Hope the labs come back soon and that it's good news, Bal.

Anybody tried going to the E-Ponies website in the past couple of days?

Beware!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

The waiting is the worst. I hope you get good news, Ballerina.

Why are you warning us, Stark? Did you encounter some sort of malware? :(

When it costs me $460 a month to get to work I think I deserve better than having my trains cancelled every Monday. Then paying for parking on another branch..

I think my 3 year plan now includes getting out of NY in 1.5 years.

I love the purgatory that is NYC and I miss the beach like crazy, but leaving the place was a great move. Chicago and Minneapolis both have good public transportation systems and are cheaper (Minneapolis especially).

Good luck with the preliminary ground work.
