happy banding day, 3 girls and a boy
That's good, it has become an annual treat, the banding of the falcon eyasses on the city hall tower through the lens of the blurry web-cam. Glad I didn't miss it. It is so green here it makes the eyes hurt. You who live where it does not rain much understand this. A cardinal, an oriole, peonies make my heart sing. People are getting ready for summer here, painting lawn furniture and fat men are riding mowers on the impossibly green lawns. 48 hours post surgery, Agnes is still on the ventilator. I was crushed when they told me it would be another day. When the sedation starts to wear off she gets very agitated, and since I am not sedated, I am having a hard time dealing with that. After we got her quiet again, I left for some time, as she does not know if I am there or not. They tell me she is doing well, but not that well. I suspect there will be no more news for awhile. Sigh, more waiting.
