Dad's surgery went very well; he is recovering at home and should be well on his way to a "new normal" in the next two or so weeks... just in time for Mom's surgery on the 15th, after which she enters a clinical trial that will, God willing, do the job.
Notice the birdlike image in the large glass bead above? I've had lots of bird dreams and "signs" lately; in many spiritual traditions, birds carry our prayers to the gods. So this is my new favorite bracelet....
