Surgery

I had gall bladder and gallstones removal (laparoscopic cholecystechtomy) last week and I am on the mend.
This hasn't been the best of summers after all!
Spotting beauty everywhere though!
Stairway to ....surgery.
 Old weathered door at the hospital.
 Flowers from a dear friend.
 Recovering under the trees.
And reading this exceptionally good book Scenes from the life of Matias Almosino
by Isidoros Zourgos, a fellow teacher.
I hadn't spotted the light till I uploaded the photo on Instagram. I am sure it's coming out of the book and not falling on it through the tree leaves!!!!!That's how good books are!
(Thank you to the surgeon, all the doctors, nurses and my family and friends who stood by me during this unexpected ordeal!)

So sorry you had surgery! Hope you'll be up and about quickly!
I had my kidney stone lithotripsy and probably have to get another......
But then maybe I'll be "stone free"!!!!!!
Your photos are gorgeous!!!!

I suffered my own gallbladder attack this summer, though thankfully have avoided surgery so far. However, those are fabulous stairs that led to your (hopeful) relief. So glad to have found you at Our Beautiful World.
