Some things that happened

Here are some photos of things that happened while I was in Indianapolis from December 4 through December 20 — they are things I intended to write about but never found the energy or time, or things that I did write about but failed to post the related photos. Enjoy.

my first day back in Indy they drew a lot of blood. This photo is of the tray that nurse Beth created inthe process.

The hospital was full the day I was supposed to be admitted, so I spent that first night alone in a nearby hotel. I took this photo of myself in my hotel room the morning I was admitted.

probably the most beautiful view I have ever had from a hospital room. It didn't last long, but it was nice while it did.

Some excitement in the Cancer Center -- a car fire breaks out in the parking garage across the street. Fortunately, Todd's rental car was not damaged.

Todd and I spent much of our time playing Battleship. Our obsession with patterns, however, gets the best of us and we end up more concerned with how our pegs look than whether or not they are striking their targets. At one point, Todd actually calls a stop to a game so that his pattern will not be disrupted.

  1. Love the curtains, man. Oh, yeah. You’re gonna miss those.

  2. You have no idea — the curtains were just for show. They didn’t even move. There were two shades that came down with the push of a button. One was to filter the light, and the other was completely opaque. No street light at night!

  3. You sank MY Battleship!

  4. Yes, I did. (and by the way, the other ships are known as the Submarine, the Carrier, the Patrol Boat, and — your favorite — the Destroyer.)
