"Reflections About The Past Week..."

Almost nine decades...and...sixty seven anniversaries...
Two parents...
Two surgeries...
Two different hospitals.
(Both on the same day...
both unexpected...and both of emergency level urgency.)
One hip replacement....
Five+ weeks advanced residential health care rehab.
One nuclear stress test...
Two surgeon...
Zero time to wait...
Four cardiac stents...
No excuses.
Nothing is the same.
Shock, Tears,
Tension, Fear, Worry,
Separation, Anxiety...Assurance, Success,
Appreciation, Understanding, Relief,
Clarity, Sighs
A new normal...for all of us.

"There us no medicine like hope
no incentive so great,
no tonic so powerful
as expectation of something better tomorrow."

"A Fanciful..."

...Tree of Life.
This was drawn lead straight in.
It started with one branch
and then just
grew and grew and grew...great fun indeed!

Don't wait until everything is just right.
It will never be perfect.
There will always be challenges,
and less than perfect conditions.
So what.
Get started now.
With each step you take,
you will grow stronger and stronger,
more and more skilled,
more and more self-confident
more and more successful.”
