Wow, I've gotten so much done today, and it's not even noon yet. Finally got the appointment with an orthopedic doctor at uva. The only problem is that it is Wednesday morning and Tom will be out of town that day for work, so now I need to find a ride. My other achievement for this morning has to do with the radon fan, which is a whole other story.

A few weeks ago (before the ski trip) tom heard a noise coming from the radon fan (back left corner of the house outside). He checked it out the next day and found a dead squirrel in the tube. It had chewed the wire mesh cap, fallen in, chewed up the fan and wires, and then died. Kind of sad, because it probably died of starvation. It was installed by a contractor through the previous owner during closing negotiations, and we could not find the receipt to see if who or if it was still under warranty. I looked up the fan online, and it would cost 150-200 dollars just for parts (the whole unit had to be replaced, and it looked easy enough to do ourselves). This morning I had the idea of looking for radon installers in our area and calling them to see if they had installed ours. But it turns out that there is only one in this area. I called and talked to Wolfgang who remembered doing the work here. Within five minutes he was here to check it out (he was already driving in the area). He said he will fix it no problem, and put a better cap on it this time. Another problem solved from the recliner with a phone and laptop.

Now I just have to sort out the health insurance mess....
