Comic Con Wrap Up (sort of)

So... the big photo spread wrap-up I was planning for Comic Con won't happen. I lost my camera! Grrr. Still, Zan and David of Prism have done a great job of detailing the ins and outs of Comic Con, so check the Prism Comics homepage!

Also, a video recording of the Emerging LGBT Voices Panel is up on Youtube, thanks to Brian Andersen of So Super Duper!

I *heart* Kaiser

I'm consistently impressed by my health care provider, Kaiser Permanente. As with every visit, I barely have to wait 5 minutes before I'm seen. My general care practitioner answers even the seemingly most inane health questions of mine with patience and good humor, and though I know he's got other patients, he totally takes his time and never acts like he's in a rush.

This morning, I had my second follow-up re: my ER visit. I've got a clean bill of health. The sample taken by the urologist only 2 days after the ER sample was completely clear, too fast for the medication to make a difference. The specialist and my general practitioner both think that the sample was contaminated. Their shared diagnosis is that I passed a kidney stone. Damn, it hurt, but no permanent damage. I just need to remember to drink lots of water, something I'm really, really bad about.
