One year ago, I was undergoing surgery for the second time in one year.
The diagnosis and first surgery involved a series of medical errors.
The second surgery was to remove hardware from a failed fusion in my upper back.
Post op - flat on my back, I found pbase -got hooked on the idea
of starting a Picture a Day project (started on January 1). This
has been one of several silver linings of a not so fun experience.
Doing a PaD project has been good diversion from chronic pain.
Deeply appreciate all the words of encouaragement and your wonderful
work that has been very inspiring. A second silver lining is wonderful
brother-in-law, who helped me get back on my feet. A big thanks JACK!.
The third silver lining has been Java - for a young Lab, he
has been unbelievably patient with my recovery and source of laughter,
based on his love of stuff toys. So, Java got two new toys today -
a pink flamingo and small pink pig.
