Last surgery pic I’ll show I think; wasn’t even aware of the cut til today, lol! My focus has been on hourly high pressure rinses of my nostrils to keep the channels clean to heal well, and so I can breathe occasionally through my nose instead of only by mouth.

I can tell already though, once I’ve healed enough to have the splints out ( hopefully next Thursday ) I’m gonna experience a vastly improved quality of life 🙏

How folks go through this alone, esp elderly or disabled, is beyond me. Without Sheila being with me, well I don’t even want to think of it ☺️

Hopefully tomorrow I’ll have nice sky picture to share!

Stay well everyone! ❤️




I support passage of The Voting Rights Act 🙏❤️😊

Voting, in our democracy, is the purest form of expression.

Dissenting, affirming, protesting – 
– all flow through the form of the ballot, not, the bullet…

Stay well everyone – for oneself, and for those who need us most..the children….
