The River of Moons is moving along with more stars and backing with more velvet

a balancing act dancing one step forward two steps back

more parchment stars !

Rod got out of hospital on Wednesday afternoon, the partial knee replacement went very well. He has been able to walk up and down all the stairs here from the minute he got home with the help of a walking stick and can even walk across the room without it already. He is pain free for the first time in years!
Getting to the pub is still a way off so I bought him a 6 pack of beer to enjoy on the upstairs verandah when the sun goes over the yardarm.
Magic Days!
thanks to everyone for all the good vibes!

    Pain-free is indeed magic! So good to hear it. Cheers! Stars are looking great!

  2. Liz A says:

    Oh I love this … such great news … and I have to confess, I scrolled right past the moons to check on Rod …

  3. deemallon says:

    Wow. Glad to hear the results are so immediately felt!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Dee))) the surgeon did a brilliant job, said it was one of the worst knees he’d seen although the very down to earth physiotherapist said that’s what they all say hehe!

  4. jude says:

    Wishing stars maybe and wishes came true! Pain free is a good kind of free. Yay!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Jude))) I love making those little parchment stars & it’s so good to see the man pain free at last, when we retire (x fingers by the end of the year) we will be able to go bushwalking together for the first time in years!

  5. Marti says:

    Blue, such a great healing color, sky background for moons and stars and the best and brightest star Himself, Rod in his blue jacket, his smile lighting up the screen…simply wonderful to see him doing so incredibly well.To finally be able to go thorough your days without pain is such a deep blessing. I’m raising my glass of iced tea in your honor Rod, I would drink a beer but it has been so hot here (it is 95 at 6:30 pm this Sat. June 12th) that I think beer would knock me out and I want to be able to do a little dance of joy to see you here:

    Moons in June,
    Time to sing a happy tune.
    Stars to guide and show the way,
    Welcome back Rod, everyone wants to say.
    Up and down and soon across
    The pub awaits, his absence has been a loss.
    But best of all, Rod is back,
    And soon he will be making fast track(s)*

    * well I think I’m drinking iced tea but maybe it’s beer because that last line didn’t exactly rhyme!

  6. Nancy says:

    Yay!!! Pain Free…the best!! I’m so happy for him, for you both! Great, great news!!!

  7. fiona says:

    So good, so good! And the most beautiful stars and moons and ladders – gently making their way through the sky.

  8. Barry says:

    Hi MC – great OMC is doing so well. I think he will be scooting to the pub soon – but in the meantime – well pub at home in a 6 pack – way to go. The moon piece just get more and more layers and meaning. Go well. B

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Barry))) the verandah catches the afternoon sun beautifully with a lemon scented gum in flower across the road full of lorikeets and noisy miners enjoying the flowers!

  9. debgorr says:

    Hooray! 🙂

  10. Liz A says:

    I’m back, enjoying your stars … and humming a corny old-time croon …

    Would you like to swing on a star
    Carry moonbeams home in a jar
    And be better off than you are …

  11. Beth says:

    Such good news. A stitch at a time. A step at a time. They add up!

  12. grace says:

    Old Man…you are a FINE piece of work in progress…you two are so Lucky to
    have eachOther….these are Happy moonlit days…Love to you both

  13. Peggy McG says:

    Mo, I am so glad all went well for Rod.. and I know that brings you both closer to walking the mountains again and soon forever…
    Mo, Old Man Crow, under a Blue Moon on a Blue Mountain.. what a picture!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Peggy))) the swelling & bruising from the surgery is nearly gone already. He is doing all the exercises the physiotherapist gave him three times a day, he’s well on the way!

  14. Lana says:

    You are both doing incredibly well, you with your beautiful embroidered moons and stars and Rob with his new knee!

  15. snicklefritzin43 says:

    I love watching the progress of this piece through your words and photos. Fantastic healing journey for Rod! May all the sweetness continue for both of you.

    Fondly, Kristin

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Kristin))) we went out for lunch with a friend yesterday, loved seeing the Old Man Crow use his walking stick as a hook to help lift his foot to get his healing leg into the car!

  16. Judy Martin says:

    so glad to hear about pain free and six pack xoxo

  17. vdbolyard says:

    excellent news! take care,

    • Mo Crow says:

      Rod is moving so much easier every day, he walked around the block on Sunday without using the walking stick & yesterday morning went into St Vincent’s hospital to have the surgical dressing removed & starts the outpatient physiotherapy on Wednesday. I reckon he’ll have his knee working well enough to walk up to the pub by the Full Moon on Friday!

  18. Hazel says:

    Pain free, amazing! I’m imagining the two of you dancing down the street on your way to the pub…

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Hazel))) there’s some pain surfacing now that all the tissues are reconnecting but he reckons the difference in pain levels is comparing a minor headache to having like your leg chewed off by a wild beast!

    I love this river. The moons and ladders. Have you seen this? One of our bedtime favorites: La Luna
