Baby It's Cold Outside

Things are well. Anna and I were out Tuesday evening to hear Virginia Tichenor and Marty Eggers play at Pier 23, a funky little bar and seafood joint right on the pier. Virginia and Marty are fabulous ragtime musicians and good friends. They really had the place jumping the other evening. The photo above shows us riding the N Judah streetcar home.

I hope everyone is having a pleasant holiday and here's wishing you a Happy New Year.

Kaiser Scores Some Points

Anna and I spent the morning at Kaiser. I was scheduled for a Rituxin infusion at 9:15 am. We arrived early hoping to get things rolling so we could get out of there at a reasonable time. Anticipating the usual slow start, back up in the pharmacy and paperwork screw-ups, I was really surprised to be in a chair and sucking up monoclonal antibodies by 9:05. At 11:45 am we were heading out the door. Amazing! That was a first. I have to give all the nurses credit; regardless of all the chaos and goof ups, they are all caring and quick to correct any problem, and always conscious of the fact the patient has a life and wants to get on with it as soon as possible. Kaiser scored some points today, thanks Ellie.
