While I haven’t received the official word just yet, I was advised yesterday by my doctor’s surgery scheduler that appointments are being set for late December and, more possibly, January at the earliest. 

I was so stunned by this news that I could only mumble, “well, that’s unfortunate.” A host of sound bites from the election debates flooded my memory. 

Now I must rethink my entire situation. 

Meanwhile, plan B has formed in my head. I will post an update by the weekend.
