From the U.S. Senate to the ER in one afternoon [View all]

Don't try this at home, boys and girls. I have been running on empty for a few days, now, but there was so much stuff I wanted to do. I was invited to a few swearing in receptions at the U.S. Senate today, for 3 Democratic women I had supported during the campaign.

No too slick. I collapsed in Sen. McCaskill's office and was brought to the Senate infirmary in a wheelchair, and then by ambulance to Georgetown U Hospital. No big problems, but they did suggest I get a good night's sleep. I had to ask what's that.

But before my system gave out, here are some pics from Capitol Hill today. It was a GOOD day for Democrats in the Senate.

With newly minted Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawai'i:



My brother and me with surprisingly re-elected Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri.


EVERYONE dropped by there. Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, the two Davids (Axelrod and Simas) and look who else!!


I missed Sen. Heitkamp of ND as I was being transported to the ER. Can't have everything, right?
