...I encountered some friends...
Yes, that's the very same paramedic wagon I had the none-too-pleasant trip in. And a couple of the firefighters who were out walking/jogging along the street today (they come down here pretty regularly to do that and enjoy the fresh ocean air) were among those who bundled me off to the ER three weeks or so ago.
They were a bit surprised to see me, I think.
Obviously, I look different now.
I'm no less grateful to them now that I can breathe and move around on my own.
