Medical adventures...

Bad news: Chest pains and difficulty breathing are scary, and can cause friends to haul you off to the local hospital posthaste.
Good News: These can also be symptoms of a minor problem, like an odd little virus infecting the lining around the lungs.

Good news: The aforementioned symptoms get prompt attention in the ER.
Bad News: A poor family history can cause them to keep you overnight, even when all the tests come back negative.

Bad news: Multiple EKG's and an echo stress test leave lots of adhesive where adhesive just should not be.
Good News: The adhesive is water soluble. I have never been so glad for a shower in my life.

Good News: The staff at the local hospital is uniformly kind, competent and concerned for their patients' well-being.
Bad news: That caring does not include any consideration for trivial concerns like sleep.

Good News: I am surrounded by wonderful people, who love me better than I deserve.
Bad News: Nope. No bad news, here.
