Land of Lincoln



A couple of photos taken this afternoon... home after a successful surgical procedure! The splinter actually ended up being a shard of glass (shown next to a penny for scale) which we were able to bring home (apparently not considered a biohazard or it would have required disposal at the hospital). Right up until the time I was being wheeled into the OR, my surgeon was still doubtful he'd be able to find it.
Anesthesia was so weird, and so easy... one moment I remember saying, "This is so WEIRD" and the next moment I was awake being discharged... hours later.
Not too big of a bandage, no real interference playing the fiddle (yeah, I know I look a little sleepy), and not much inconvenience typing though the thumb is numb still. Should be back up to full speed shortly! That's good because we've found some new tunes to play, and have ideas for more...
Thanks to everyone for their well-wishes.
Land of Lincoln comes from the second volume of the Portland Collection.
