Dear Blog friends,
it feels so nice for me to be able to use my left hand again.
I had surgery October 14 to deal with cancerous cells in my left thumb. It required an operating room, a plastic surgeon, and a lot of stitches. They dug deep to my bone and tendon to get it all but I may still need radiation. I am so grateful I have my thumb and over 31 stitches later I am down to just one bandage. They had to backfill the lost meat from my thumb by taking a little piece from my bicep. Yucky eh. No more and don’t worry no photos. LOL That is behind me for now but the nature of my medications for my transplant and that I have been taking them for 33 years means more surgeries likely.
A is for Anniversary ; This is an anniversary post and unbelievable, almost, this is my 801st blog post. Wow.
I started this blog eleven years ago in honor of my Aunt Elinore. She was a miracle person and full of life and love for her family and friends. It is hard to believe that so much time has passed, she was a person of light and love.

Celebration; is for festivals of light.
Today marks the beginning of Diwali. Happy Diwali Festival.
Diwali symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance“.
In December of 2017 I blogged about another Festival of Light and I thought how amazing light is, and how symbolic. (link here)
I am blessed to know via blogs and directly people who I think of as inspiring. They are light sharers.
It is wonderful to know people like that. It only takes one person like that to restore belief that there are good people in this world.
Now eleven years after starting this blog, gratefully able to type again, I want to thank everyone who ever read one of my blog posts.
I am not stopping reading or writing, but I felt like a message of appreciation was due, and appropriate. – David
