Ok, whiling away the non emergency hours I created a slide show at my friend, Erin's request. She's actually my blog mentor. Feel free to check it out. Though it is far from perfect, it might be interesting. I would suggest getting rid of the cartoons. I cannot set it up without them, and trying to do that was the most time consuming part. Come to think of it though, the cartoons aren't that out of place. When we were in SICU, Chico marveled several times about the cartoon characters he'd see as he woke up. I hadn't thought of that.
It is weird to be so exposed but I think important to show some of the people and places that live in Chico and that he has seen recently (when we've had a camera handy). Know that we love so many of you with whom we have not spent time this summer. The family shots in Las Cruces were taken on and around the day of my father in law's burial.
Chico is doing well. Any one of his minor wounds or bruises would set me complaining for a week. For that matter he'd be sleepless about any one of them as well. I just keep discovering more of them and we realize how they (the nearly bitten through tongue, the stapled arm, for example) would be huge and significant were they not sharing the body with the likes of a busted femer, tibia, fibula, foot, etc.
Possible surgery tomorrow. Chester flies home to DC. I hope to do a little work. We remain intemittently ecstatic to be here so grateful are we.
Thanks for picking up the comments. It really helps me and us get through these days.
