What I most emphatically did not do today:
Answer phone calls, frantic or otherwise, from any hospital, clinic, coworker, or doctor. Get tested for anything. Have anything plastic refitted. Slide into any tubes, magnetized or otherwise. Suction, rinse, or wipe snot out of my enlarged oral cavity. Think about what I could or could not eat. Be exposed, therapeutically or not, to radioactivity. Think about having cancer. Take pain medications. Research anything. Worry about whether I'll have enough energy tomorrow or the next day to do what I want to do.
In short, it was a beautiful, ordinary, lazy golden day: the first one I've had since August of last year. Even if things go to shit tomorrow, I'm going to treasure this twenty-four hour period. Thank God for ordinary days.
