Thousands of people on Pennsylvania Avenue participate in the Women’s March and rally to protest President Donald J. Trump the day after he was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.

Orthopedic surgeon:

the remarkable Dr. Clare McCarthy

and Claire Joubert, P. A.

Sonics in the OR- my surgeons know my body needs music:

The surgeries are to restore the medial and ulnar nerves in my left  hand/arm.
My nerves’ conductivity is damaged from decades of wheelchairs, crutches, canes,
cross-country skiing and “stand biking”!
My left hand is numb.
The situation must be attended to because  the condition is progressive.
If not attended at this time, I will lose use of my left arm!
I will then have the option of applying for being the home plate of baseball teams.
“Run! Run! Please, don’t step on my face!” 🙂

X

X

X

We decided to schedule the surgeries between the end of kayak season
and
beginning of cross-country ski season!
NO USE of my  post-op hand/arm for SIX weeks- THIS will be fascinating!
Nerve surgery is a beast-quite different from the joint/prosthetic procedures
in my repertoire of experiences!

The 4 week recovery marker will be on 21 November,

the opening

of

HUMANLY POSSIBLE: THE EMPATHY EXHIBITION

@ INSTINCT Art Gallery, 940 Nicollet Mall!

 

Thirteen of my original works created
between 2005 to present will be offered/featured.

Denial v. BLUE NILE RIVER

Choices.
Guilt.
Control.
Controlled.
Fear.
Victim.
Cycles.
Roller coaster.
Habits.
Uncertainty.
Patterns.
Conscious choices.
One’s own choices that uphold their core values- no influence.
Telling the truth to one self.
Truth leading, following the truth.
Improvisational.
Upholding the unrepeatable gift of WHO you are.
Breathing JOY.
Courage.
Compassion.
Awake.
Amazing Grace.
