It is holiday time back in USA with Thanksgiving tomorrow and Christmas in a month but it does not feel like holiday time here. It is about 100F in the daytime and dry and dusty although we had a 0.3 inch shower a few days ago which it is not supposed to do in dry season so for a few days humidity is high. We are going to have a Thanksgiving meal about 1500 tomorrow with several local people invited. Danae and Juniper are back here now as is Zach Gately. They all seem to be in good health. Danae still cannot see part of visual field right eye in bright light but otherwise ok. She did surgery today with no problems. The problem affects only the cones of the lateral part of her right eye. All the big specialists and tests in the University of Maryland in the US did not find a cause or treatment "possibly a virus". Anyway we are glad it was not a tumor or aneurysm or anything real serious. Not enough problem for disability. Ha!! Last week we had a ruptured spleen from a moto accident that we did a spleenectomy on but now is doing well in fact eating and drinking and walking on 2nd post op day. He lost a lot of blood. The man with two gun shot wounds through his left chest now has a severe infection draining lots of purulence but I think he will survive. Today Danae and I had a hysterectomy also a myomectomy (taking out large fibroids from her uterus so hopefully she can have a baby being she has not had one). We also had another mastectomy for cancer last week. Today we had a child with severe respiratory problems with wheezing etc. that would not respond to steroids, ceftriaxone, magnesium, albuterol, oxygen, ketamine, IV fluids, etc. Don't know if she will survive but appears doubtful.
Have a happy Thanksgiving and don't watch too much football or spend too much on "black Friday". We do have a lot to be thankful for.
