Long time between posts. Since I have talked about my pending surgery on this blog I probably should give you an update.
I had the procedure on Friday the 13th of October. For the most part the surgery went well. They had a lot of trouble getting the breathing tube down my throat and spent almost an hour doing that. I had a really sore throat for about a week. The rest of the procedure went fine and after about four days of pain I’m doing pretty good. The one consequence of the surgery was the solution they use to paint the surgical area. Apparently I’m allergic to whatever is in that mix and I developed a painful and bothersome rash that perfectly followed the application of the scrub. Still haven’t got that under control yet but I did get some meds this weekend for the problem.
I have been going on walks each day increasing the distance a little each time. Some observations about the experience. I am surprised that it is taking longer than I expected to get back to normal. I was weaker and had less endurance than I thought would happen. I got off the pain pills four days after the surgery. I was uncomfortable but the pain was bearable.
I see the surgeon tomorrow and assuming he gives me a clean bill of health I plan on returning to work on Wednesday.
Last evening was the first time in a long time that I felt like picking up a camera. Saw this beautiful sky and had to make some images of it. 🙂
There was a huge update (release) Friday of Photoshop (now called Photoshop CC – 2018) and of Lightroom (now called Lightroom CC.) Lots of changes and new features. I have been taking some lessons on the new things and I haven’t really had time to explore all the new features. Exciting stuff. More to come.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
