  Happy Mother's Day.
I have suffered a relapse as far as my sinuses go and they are back to being as clogged as ever. I am not sure if the pressure sinus massage the doctor did is the culprit, but I did go for the nasal X-Ray today.

It was sort of freaky in that we do not have any X-Ray equipment on this compound so they shackled up eight of us and took us over to the nearby maximum security prison and we just hung out with the maximum security inmates waiting while everybody was x-rayed! It is quite a step up from my cozy days at Club Fed. Hearing them call out id numbers that started with 1988, 1990 and seeing men still in the forties spending their entire adult life in a cage. Anyhow it took over four hours for that little trip. The next time they calm me for a med trip will be for the colonoscopy. I am certainly looking forward to that, NOT!

For better or worse it is beginning to look like I will have to undergo the nose job. I am in constant pain and even the steroid spray does not seem to be able to clear up the months of neglect.

It is now 9:15 PM and I am fading fast. I was feeling so much better mast week. Damn. I did not get much sleep mast night. I am going to get this letter all signed and sealed and go bury my tired bones under my blankets. Sometimes the sinuses actually drain better when I am lying down.

I will hopefully type some posts over next few days.

I have been scanning the papers as they come in. I have three other inmates that get to read the paper before I do the article clipping and then several others review my 'censored' copy. I also have been working on the crosswords on the day I receive the paper. Monday, no problem. Tuesday, sometimes I need to look up one or two clues. Wednesday, I can complete with help from the crossword dictionary. Thursday and on, I still need to learn more to complete.

I did notice your illustrious former CEO made the front page of the NY Times, above the fold as they say. The Fed system is different as far as plea bargains go, and the story is correct that in terms of them pleading guilty without a sentence guarantee, they will probably do a large portion of the sentences mentioned. I wonder if they will end up at my former home?
