Thank you a ton for all the 'hey you better stay alive'-type comments! (echoed by my cat, who keeps walking over to sniff my face and make sure I haven't become dinner yet.) I'm going to try to be coherent enough to reply later?
The docs ended up doing more than they'd originally planned, so I'm not sure how long I'm going to need to stay on the drugs, but 'alive and fumbling toward coherent' is always good in my book. :)
