How I spent election night

Just so you don't get the idea that I spend all my time hiking, kayaking, and eating out, I'm blogging tonight from George Washington University Hospital.

I checked in yesterday afternoon with a fever following a mishap with my chemo treatment on Monday. Fortunately, I think I'm OK again and should be able to go home Thursday or Friday.

The good news is that I got to vote--thanks to something called an emergency absentee ballot. And although we missed a lot of the election celebration, we could hear folks cheering in the streets outside our room.
