Thanks! The procedure went smoothly. Nurses said the doc saw one thing, papers they gave me said something else, so I'm waiting on the lab results to give me a definitive answer. But either way it didn't sound like anything serious, esp. since they said I don't have to come back for two years.Good luck!

That said, I did in fact skip flossing on Friday, so that streak's broken.

Saturday, Nov. 11. Day 1706. Day 8 of Punch Out!, 160 overhead punches. Day 1 of flossing.

Sunday, Nov. 12. Day 1707. Day 9 of Punch Out1, 200 punches. Day 2 of flossing.

Nov. 23. Day 1718. Rode bikes with my niblings today, including 10 minutes/1.17 miles and 2 minutes/0.2 miles (this was supposed to be a longer ride but a flat tire suddenly came into the picture). Also played Attempted Baseball with them for about 20-30 minutes. (three people, no actual base markings, a wiffle bat, two different sizes of ball, no clear idea of which team person #3 was on... attempted baseball.) I did, however, make it to day 17 for a full 340 punches. ETA: day 13 flossing.
