After several frantic phone calls to various folks at Shady Hell on Friday, knowing it was the end of the day and probably a useless endeavor, I finally got a call back from my nurse who, contrary to her voice mail message, had not yet left for the weekend and had been able to look into things since I gave the heads up that I was definitely there that morning.
