Up and out of my Nashotah House lodging bright and early at 7:15. Arrived home in Springfield four-and-a-half hours later. Saw my urologist to talk strategy about a kidney stone that was discovered by the CT-scan I had on Monday. Unless it passes first, I’m booked for an outpatient surgical procedure on Hallowe’en. Spent the rest of the afternoon processing emails and developing my homily for this Sunday.
