Here we go again!





Hey folks thanks for all the well wishes on my surgery. I'm happy to say it was success and I'm now back home, elevated feet and all. Right now I'm feeling no pain (thanks to the magic of modern pain medication) and a bit silly. Silly enough to post these pics.
this shot is before sedation. The reason for frown besides the negligee cap? This will be my 9th surgery in 3 years, the fourth on my left foot. The reasons are to long and tedious to go into here. Suffice it to say a casualty of my day job as a Nurse and the complications of an auto accident. It's tragic when the admitting nurse know you by name on sight. Why they make a bald man wear this ridiculous little blue cap is beyond me.
Aaah! the pre-op meds are kicking in! According to the Surgeon it was a success, at least I think I spoke with him after. I'm going to try to rest and keep my foot elevated, Doctors orders!
Doesn't mean I can't draw my fingers off. In closing I thought I'd share one of my favorite past pieces "Drive by".

thanks again for all you good wishes.

Jorge what nice legs you have!
You are too funny, I like the smiling pic better.
I remember your car accident and then being dropped by the MT's loading you into the ambulance, how awful that you are still suffering from that!
You rest and enjoy those meds!

Thanks all for your well wishes, i feel the healing! Vikki my specialty was Oncology-Hospice, very rewarding but demanding and taxing, didn't know how much till I was laid up.
