So... I've been up all night in the er with mom. otoh there are doodles in a text file on my laptop and in my notebook. more later.
And since I'm home now, I can give you the later. It doesn't seem to be anything serious, just water retention, but swelling in the ankles can mean some rather nasty things, so I'm glad we got it checked.
So I'm just going to transcribe some doodles out of my notebook, post them where a certain GMish type can read them when he gets bored, and then call it a night and collapse.
