Something has come up with Soonerdaughter’s health. We’ll be taking her in for tests on Monday and Tuesday at OU Children’s Medical Center. Being a 14-year-old, she doesn’t want anyone to know anything, so I’m going to omit the details, even though none of her friends read Balloon-Juice. We were originally scheduled to do these tests in mid-October by the Resident, but the Attending physician ordered them moved up ASAP. As far as we know at this time, this isn’t anything life-threatening, at least within the visible time horizon. As a consequence of this, I will be scarce around here for the next few days, not that you’ll miss me. Please remember her and send prayers, good thoughts, and/or whatever else you believe in.
BTW, we have great health insurance between Federal BCBS from my work, and HealthChoice from my wife’s work, but it’s still going to smack our savings account.
In the mean-time, consider this an open thread for football, fishing, cooking, knocking over liquor stores, or whatever it is that you all do for fun.
