Still in Pennsylvania. Likely to be here for another 2 weeks.
Would love to be going to Tina Smith and Sarah Lynn Herklots poetry workshop tonight. If you live near Portland, Maine you should check it out. It’s for 8 weeks and should be amazing. Tonight’s is about overcoming obstacles and fears which is something I could definitely use.
Definitely feeling displaced here, like I blogged yesterday. And dad moved to Philadelphia at the beautiful Pennsylvania Hospital near Independence Hall, the oldest continually operating hospital in the US and one with a great brain surgeon more importantly.
As of now looks like Monday for the surgery but that is definitely subject to change.
Put did play some disc golf today in the super long Little Lehigh course (long holes and long walks between holes) and get my shoes and socks very wet. Also got a case of Yuengling Lager which seemed to be the best value at Shangy’s. Would love to get a round of real golf in but don’t know if my finances and time will allow it. Disc golf has a bunch of free course in the Lehigh Valley and I plan to try a few.
Also getting the pretty shy new kitten here Ms. Briggs to say hi to me. Stratton her sister is slower to like me and more skittish. And they are both very sweet, black 16 month old cats. I look forward to sharing a picture when I get a good shot.
But, today is another day. We have a few to go before the surgery, I am worried about the surgery and more worried about the after care and rehabiliation. Removing part of the thalamus is very scary indeed.
