    Surgery was rescheduled to yesterday and it’s over, yay! I nearly backed out several times but the size and discomfort had increased in the past few months, affirming my decision. Numbness wore off by 8:30 last night and it’s painful (about a 6.8)…

    Hey Scotty! I just realized that I never got back to that final invite for the trip and wanted to apologize. That was the week that my youngest (3 y/o) had her tonsils removed and got ear plugs, so I had a bit too much chaos on my hands to even think…

    I just noticed that my pics from a couple weekends ago didn't post. It was a short hike at a local park. We had such a warm January, the Skunk cabbages are already emerging. appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…b67e50ab1a33b763d7e9cf45c
