January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

There he is, Lincoln so large in scale to the people. For those who have never been to see the monument, like me, this is an amazing image.
I'm holding onto prayers for this good report today.

@Barbara: I agree, Barb ... the people add scale to the image.
You'll hear from me later today. ♥

Hola, gracias por tu comentario en mi foto "Laparoscopia". Efectivamente estaban realizando una cirugía laparoscopica renal, como a tí. Por la pantalla yo veía los órganos internos y como los manipulaban. Fue impresionante. Estuve haciendo un reportaje que me encargaron, me pusieron un vestido adecuado y estuve haciendo fotos en quirófano de Urologia. Espero que te sientas bien ya. Un saludo

@Gloria Alvarez: Qué maravillosa experiencia que usted tuvo. He visto vídeos de Youtube mi tipo de cirugía con el robot - fascinante! Estoy bien ahora, gracias.

Scott Schilling from San Martin, United States

Dear Judy. I just received your email! That is incredible news! Fantastic!! You can get back to a more normal pace in your life - if there is such a thing. On the photograph . . . I really like this with the depth and shadow. Abraham Lincoln is situated perfectly in the depths. Great work and have a wonderful weekend!

@Scott Schilling: Thank you, Scott, for your comment. "Normal" is a setting the dryer, right? <grin>
I appreciate your kind words on the photo ... a bit grainy, but not too bad considering the distance.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Oh Judy....that is the most wonderful news in the world tonite!!! What a great relief that must have been for you!!!! I'll bet you sleep better tonite than you have in awhile!!!! Now you can just focus on getting back to the healthy condition you were in before you entered the hospital....minus the worry factor!!! What a wonderful way for you to start your weekend!!!! I'm really happy for you, and your family as well!!!

@Susan: Thank you so much, Susan. The relief is more than you can imagine. My mom died in 1978 of CA, aged 63, and we have no primary site, so 8 years older than that, I really wondered about my tumor. Thank God medical science has made such advances in the 30+ years! We're off to a wedding this afternoon - yeah!
