An update on my surgery, I now have crutches and can put some weight on my foot, but I still have to wear my storm trooper/cyborg boot for at least 3 more weeks. Once I can comfortably wear a tennis shoe, I can have the surgery on the other foot!

I'm continuing to do research for some icons of St. Joseph the worker (husband of Mary, earthly father of Jesus). The ones I like the best I found on a site called Eighth Day Icons by an Ohio iconographer, Daniel Nichols. His work is beyond my current level of skill, but very inspiring.

Glad that you are doing so well in your recovery. Crutches have to be a challenge, especially in the winter.

Crutches are less of a challenge in the snow than the cart was! Now that I can use my booted foot for balance, the crutches are good. I just can't put my full weight on that foot for a week or so.
