Old Man Crow is so ready for his partial knee replacement surgery on Monday,
all the pre-admission interviews and x-rays are done, just one more phone call tomorrow afternoon to confirm the time for the surgery at St Vincent’s Public Hospital

Marti sent these encouraging words and photos:

I was going to wait until May 10th, the day of the knee surgery to send this note but then I thought well Rod will be kind of out of it from the anesthesia and I wanted him to hold these images as he heads into his knee surgery…you see, this wondrous event occurred right over my home this weekend. I was out weeding when I heard a swoosh, almost like a huge sigh, looked up and well, you’ll see at the end of this email:
Put all of your concerns and cares into these uplifting images. Let worry go up,  up, and away… May your surgery go well, may you both be well, may you achieve your heart’s desire to move to your beloved Blue Mountains and become wild and crazy Bushwackers.  Rich and I send you healing wishes and our love. With your strength Rod and your love and determination Mo,  your dream will arrive sooner than you know.  Now close your eyes, imagine that you are along for the ride with what is below:  Carry yourselves to the land of health, healing and joy- and in time, the land of the Blue Mountains.”  

Love, Marti and Rich
Now behold these wonders:

on the same day Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord’s beautiful card full of hope arrived in the letterbox

May beginner’s mind
be with you
as we move forward
with new hope.

      (((Jude))) it’s going to be so good to be able to go for walks together again once he’s recovered from the surgery. The pain of the grinding bone on bone has been getting severe over the last few months, the furthest he can walk is up to the pub & back! The good thing is riding his bicycle is not a problem so we have been doing lots of bicycle riding and Tai Chi to get his leg as fit as possible before the surgery.
