Well, I wasn't seated. It was a trial that was going to last until July 25 !! On the hardship questionnaire I honestly put down that I would need to drive DW to a neighboring city for skin cancer surgery on July 2 and be with her, and that was accepted.
It sure was scary. I would have had to drive 60 miles round trip each day for six weeks. I guess I'm just a wuss, but I still have a knot in my stomach.
