And we're off: We head back to Houston after Christmas at home.
Happy New Year! And to fellow travelers along the BC road:
Have a benign '09, as my buddies back home say.
December 31: Another marathon MDA day, the highlight of which was the exchange of the "big, honking" chest catheter for a smaller, friendlier version. However, it decided to detour into the wrong vein: do-over! Not at all fun, but thankfully at eye level there was a beautiful photograph of palm trees along a beach. It reminded me EXACTLY of several serene mornings during Hank's and my long-ago trip to the Caribbean island of Nevis. I had brought along my oil paints and did a landscape that hangs in my bedroom today. This is among my happiest memories. I could feel the breeze and sense the quiet of those mornings.
Below: A do-over? We are NOT amused!
