Grabbing dinner with James, Chelsea, and friends. At this point my stomach was really hurting in what would eventually turn out to be severe appendicitis. Actually that was true all day but by this point I had already hit Urgent Care

It was an expensive hotel, over $100,000. But insurance helped me get that down to something I could actually pay

Mom was with me through all of it and kept me alive and sane. She earned some relaxing time on the balcony

This photo ended up out of focus because I didn't really expect to have the chance to take it and didn't have the camera ready in live-preview mode. So the person who took it for me accidentally focused on the bush. Oh well, it's me and Vint Cerf!
