Thank you all for your good wishes!
Surgery went well. All that's left is to rest this baby and hopefully be back in action next week. This has been a great time to organize my computer, clean off all those old files and backup my files and images. My family has been great, so helpful. Yesterday, however, I was stuck in my bedroom and no one downstairs could hear me calling. Thank god for cell phones!
Also a good time to catch up on some reading. I received a Charles Reid book for Christmas, "Watercolor Solutions: Learn To Solve The Most Common Painting Problems". Great book, as usual, from a great painter. Can't wait to try out some of his suggestions.
