A spring look in a beauty salon window, late
On the behind the scenes front, perhaps it's just coincidence with hitting the two week point out from surgery, but I seemed to take a turn for the better overnight. Feeling almost human this morning, have to be careful not to do too much today.

Back at home now. The pathology report says that the operation was successful, the cancer was confined entirely within the prostate "capsule" and every indication is that the treatment should be curative.
Immediate post-surgery recuperation was a nightmare though. My GI tract shut down completely, initiating incredibly painful abdominal and bladder spasms and it took over 36 hours for bowl clearing routines and anti-spasm medication to take effect. Got out Friday afternoon, and for the next few days I don't plan to do anything but sleep and take the meds.

There will be a pause in posting here. I'm going into the hospital tomorrow for surgery and expect it will be at least a few days before I'm well enough to put up posts.

Rhinebeck, New York
See all those wood chips at the base of this tree on the edge of the municipal parking lot?
Human vandals at work? Nope. A pair of pileated woodpeckers have torn hell out of the old tree. I think if they keep this up they'll actually take it down.
About half an hour later. The birds paid almost no attention to the cars pulling in and out of the lot, or people getting in and out of the cars. One seemed a little more skittish than the other, moving around to the back side of the tree when I approached within fifteen feet or so. This guy just kept hammering away.
