Not so bad but not so good

Slept a bit better last night, not as many wake-ups. Kaan woke me up at 8:30 to play fetch. Message on Kaiser's site from the late night doctor, the infection is E. coli. Yikes! But the antibiotic he gave me is good for that. He said if I am having abdominal discomfort and trouble peeing, to go to the ER. I'm not feeling that sick. I'll give it one more night.

Worked from home, there was a script to run which was very time-consuming, lots of reboots and delays built in. I would run it until there was a delay, then I'd either take a nap or sit in the recliner. Domino was on my lap a lot. When I was in bed, both cats were there too. Domino is finally coming to not fear Kaan, and is doing better coexisting. There is still a ways to go, though.

Called the ClickAway people to find out why I had not heard from them about the Samsung phone repair. They said they were just waiting for the part to arrive, no ETA. About 45 minutes later they called to say it was done. Coincidence? I went to pick it up, their estimate was right on. Camera image looks much better. Took the phone home, popped in the extended battery (which is what was in the Amazon locker), charged it, and fired it up. Something which amuses me is these devices will work fine without a SIM as long as they have a wi-fi connection. They just can't make phone calls (except 911). It took a couple of hours to slurp up updates to the apps which are on it. If I'm still vertical tomorrow I'll take it to Verizon to have them swap out service from the Motorola HD. The moto phone has been a PIA, its touch screen is more like a hit-it-with-a-hammer screen. And its camera sucks.

Anyhow, finished the script, made it a little prettier with some tricks I learned after I'd written the first rev. Also set up to help with a test the boss gave someone else to do in my absence. If I'm in the office tomorrow I can help.

Plans for tomorrow:
Play it by ear. If I have a rough night, I'm going to the ER. Otherwise, work.
