Good news.  My doctor arrived this morning about 9:30, very impressive for her day off.  After reviewing the chest xray from yesterday she is satisfied that the infection is largely gone.  I’m to be released by about 1:00 this afternoon after paperwork, etc. are complete.  She has prescribed me a course of antibiotics to continue taking after my release with a followup appointment and chest xray this coming Friday.

Thanks for all your patience and well-wishes this week.  Regular programming will resume tomorrow.
