A New Day
Today started at 6:00 with my vitals being taken and my blood being drawn. Results became available at 6:30, with the numbers holding.

It’s 7:15, ready for my 1st walk, on return my breakfast should arrive soon. Got 4 walks around the ward today within 15 minutes. After my return, I cleaned up my bed station, started checking my mail, still a lot of ads for the last day of Thanksgiving and tomorrow’s Cyber Monday.
