Saturdays (i.e. the 26th) are "Dialysis Days", and I'll be lying on my back with needles in my arm, from 6:45 AM to 11:30, leaving me with less energy than found in a worn dish rag. If I start for Connecticut immediately after, I would arrive at ....

All this sounds like great FUN!!. I'll be there in spirit, anyway.
