There's a Hole In the Middle of the Leg

The hole is much smaller and shallower though, so I'm pretty pleased as are the surgeon and Dr. Bob. There's a nasty rash to the left (as I see it) of the hole, but we're all watching it to see what it does. The docs don't think it's serious, so I'm good with that.

Bob thinks that the hole will close up in about a week. It'll remain an ugly purple divot for quite some time, but closed is good. It means I can stop wearing a garbage bag into the shower. :)

Ring!

daisy_knotwise's very elderly phone has disappeared. My three-year-old phone is in none-too-good of a shape. It was time to get new phones.

It turns out that we can convert from our pair of 300 minute individual plans to a single 550 minute plan with shared minutes and free mobile-to-mobile calling for the same price we're paying and get free phones. And because I'm an Oracle employee, I get a 20% discount off that "same price", which means things will actually get cheaper.

So we've got new phones now. We'll see how this works. The phones are identical, save that mine is blue and Gretchen's is pink.

Well, we had to be able to tell them apart somehow.
