Ok, I spoke to soon. The itching has commenced! So I think I will call my doc this morning. Thanks for all the encouragement and advice.

Going to try to take Joy to the Zoo tomorrow to watch the orangutangs play football (sort of). Meant to go this morning for the hedgehog thing, but ... I think we both like just chilling in the mornings when I have to work. Today's choice, painting and "The Incredibles" while I make camping reservations (yay yurts!!!! and Newport pass) and call my various doctors. And get paperwork (more and more and more) submitted for time off. This place is sooooo .... but some of the people are nice, and not hormonal. Ok, time to eat and make more phone calls ... opps, landline phone just died. Not good. Buttons no worky.... very bad. grr. midol time before i get even more loopy.
