A Mixed Bag

The new water heater was installed without difficulty today. So far, so good.

Unfortunately, the air conditioner froze up again, so we ended up calling Lenny who will come look at it tomorrow. In the meantime, we're fortunate enough to have a cool evening.

Dr. Bob says that the culture report indicates that the staph in my leg is penicillin resistant (if it wasn't before seeing 14 days of Augmentin and living through it, it certainly is resistant now), but it is susceptible to the Bactrim that I'm taking now.

I discover that, despite having United Healthcare under both Hyperion and Oracle, they've got different prescription providers and can't manage to transfer my prescriptions across, so we have to get all new ones. This is because we have to go through them, since any retail pharmacy could actually do this without problem.

And after dinner tonight jeff_duntemann and I went on a nice three-mile walk around the neighborhood, from here to the Cumberland station (more or less) and back.

So far, I still appear to have two working knees. :)
