It was so interesting to read the comments from the last post, I’ve commented in the comments section also and thank you all for your interesting viewpoints.
I think we all know that I was not referring to comments such as “this drawing could use a bit more depth” or things of that nature. I always look forward to those comments and have learned much from suggestions and hints. I was referring to mean spirited or offensive comments – and I guess that there are many ways to view and approach those. Personally, I don’t support those types of comments, and if I did get them on my blog would delete them.
On another note, all 12 pins, screws, and plates are OUT of my leg, and here is the ubiquitious blogger foot shot, with a slightly orange foot from the betadine antiseptic that they slop all over you. A bit more surgery than I expected but OK with me. (I'm getting waited on hand and foot and I so love that!) I feel great about getting these out, like a start over from the past 3 years. Those pins and bits were always on my mind, as if they wanted to annoy me and make their presence known.
I went to an accupunturist/holistic healer type last week for the first time. T has been going to her for years to keep him in balance with his health and he wanted me to go to ensure that I can heal well from this surgery. She was very interesting, and did all these diagnostic tests to see what was weak in my system and what was bothering me. We especially looked at metal toxicity - and found that I was toxic from titanium. I was a tiny bit skeptical about this, but there was no way for me to know what metals she was testing me for...and unless all the metals were labeled titanium I don't think that there was any way to rig this (what a nasty scientist I am!). And since all these pins etc are probably made from titanium - I can believe that they were making me toxic.
So with the pins out... and taking some "clean out the toxicity in your body" herbs I should be a newly pristine person soon.
(note to self: do not post your IF "foggy" drawing that you did at 4;00 am while on vicodin. It's beyond "foggy" and looks more "drugged up" than anything else.)
