On Tuesday, ‘ear we go’

As an FYI: My aunt has been experiencing significant, progressive hearing loss over the past two years, and we’re going to the University of Michigan’s East Ann Arbor geriatric center to get her hearing tested tomorrow from 2:30-3:30 PM EDT.

I’ll be bringing my computer with me, but the drive there + paperwork = I’ll be out of contact from about 1:15 to 2:15, and it’s going to take an hour to get home in Ann Arbor traffic (even at Plymouth and Dixboro), so I may end up missing the Wings’ qualifying offer decisions (as the deadline for submitting qualifying offers is 5 PM EDT tomorrow afternoon).

Aunt Annie and I will be back in time for the first round of the 2020 draft, and I’ll be around for rounds 2-7 on Wednesday (and free agency on Friday), but there are times that family has to come first, and this is one of those times.

For what it’s worth, we’re going to take care of AA’s double vision via an ophthalmologist’s appointment on October 14th, too, but that shouldn’t affect any breaking news. The pandemic put a dent in these issues, and now we’re getting around to getting AA back to normal.
