This Sunday I went to San francisco, had corned beef hash at Mel’s and saw Pat. I wasn’t feeling well and Nicholas and I had a long talk about the family history of allergies and the possibility of my diarrhea and runny nose being due to allergies. I will get a referral to an allergist when I see Dr. Nozaki. I ran out of Movies to watchso I used the Reelgood app to find some more good movies.
