Walking Again

Today I took the final dose of antibiotics for the insect bite (now suspected to have been a tick rather than a spider based on the rash and other symptoms). While there continues to be a rash all over my lower right leg, it continues to fade. While the pain is still not gone, and I still have swelling/edema in the leg, I felt good enough for Lisa and me to walk the ~2 km round trip to the post office after lunch today.

I am not going to comment just yet about the announcement from DisCon III postponing the 2021 Worldcon to mid-December. As a staff member (Business Meeting Parliamentarian), I had a one-day advance notice of the announcement. However, I worked more than 10 hours on Day Jobbe today, and what little spare time I had was used updating the Worldcon.org web site with the new dates and pointing to DC3's announcement, so I have no energy left to comment. But comment I will when I get a chance.
