Arrow Re: Camellia Camelo

We're both doing well, Patty; I'm on a health-boosting program - mainly dental right now - major dental surgery coming up Thursday - the advances in technology over the last decades are FABULOUS! A huge donation is what permitted the dental surgery (a neighbor). Camellia's allergies are under control, and she's lively, and doing well (reasonably) with her behavior.

Joys coming up (maybe):

And the forum about handpans - I mentioned those before, and the visit from player Colin Foulke, I'm sure - is proposing to acquire and give me a handpan. THAT IS, if the builder can squeeze it in. Can't push on that one, because the entire building of a handpan takes a while, and a builder can't ditch previous commitments. I've been given a place in line donated by a person who had been waiting, but the builder might not have planned on that in his schedule!

Anyway, it's just barely possible I might have a handpan in the spring, as Colin and his new wife, Kari, hope to visit here. If they do, we'll press Colin into doing at least one concert in the park!

I couldn't play flamenco again, as my hands aren't up to it, but a handpan, I could play, oddly enough (I went over that with Colin last spring when he was here).

http://www.handpan.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=7462

I do look forward to spring, so Camellia and I can get out more; the weather now isn't all that inviting, to say the least, but we manage at least short walks most days.

Thanks for asking, Patty! Lots of love and hugs to you and everyone else!

Thanks, Louise! Surgery went well. Of course, I hurt some - well, quite a lot - but my doGNess, it is great! I have a lovely purple bruise on my chin where it turned out they had to reconstruct my left maxillary sinus area with bone grafts - a lot more than expected from the xrays.

We got Camellia through this, and a friend escorted us on a walk yesterday morning (!) the day after surgery.

Won't be able to chew for 4 months

Entire job will be finished in 10 months or so!

I can't BELIEVE what technology has done in the last few decades - for ophthalmology (I have new glasses - well, a year ago) and for dentistry. Up and around the next morning, if legally impaired - and an hour's walk (!) (escorted, of course).



I'm browsing these forums once daily now (most of the time, anyway)

Thanks for your good wishes! I hope all is going well for you and Cleo!

Carol,

I am ashamed to say I haven't been here much lately and did not know what you were going through....after all, you have been my BFF since day ONE! I am so sorry to hear that you have had to have such an involved surgery, and I truly hope you have a speedy recovery and the least amount of pain possible. I cannot believe you can't chew for 4 months! I won't send you any Christmas cookies, but I will send you lots of love and Christmas wishes.

My very best to you,

Kevin

Hey, thanks, Kevin - you're the one who taught me what a BFF is

I try to watch your dogs here, but often can't be here; it's a bit of a drag not to be able to keep up, but of course part of that is my rejuvenation back into my previous life of music - so soul-sustaining. Just a different music now! A new kind!

Hope Kobi's eyes get sorted out okay, and that Maggie continues okay - and - am I missing one?

Camellia is beginning to settle a bit more - it's VERY slow, but she's doing okay.

I never cooked much - you know, just for one - unless it was my dogs! But now, I'm sort of forced to, at least a little - fortunately, I'm hungry enough to be willing to cook some. I mashed potatoes this afternoon for the first time in well over 60 years

Tasted great. I didn't give Camellia any, but could risk SMALL amounts later, since she's not diabetic.

Always best wishes to you and your dogs, Kevin; I did pick up some of the changes you have in your life, and wish you the very best with them.
And thanks for your warm, warm greeting - and the Christmas cookie thoughts. Eat them yourself, and enjoy them!

BIG hugs,
