I hadn’t needed to see my pain doctor for a couple years, but new radiculopathy from June’s injury sent me there today, now that my Kessler epidural wore off. After all the initial niceties, he honored me with something akin to “you look like crap.”

So I’ve decided to take that as a compliment to my healthier amd better kept appearance. But Mark, I really need that dance. Did you get my PM?
