A quick update on the gap in posting .. Two days after I photographed Vice President Joe Biden (see post below), I was taken by shortness of breath which resulted in a 2-day hospitalization for multiple blood clots in both lungs and one large one in my leg. Medically speaking I had "multiple bi-lateral pulmonary emboli" and "deep vein thrombosis".
Its my great good fortune to say that I am fine now .. as fine as possible. I may be on blood thinners forever but I'm free again to take my photos and make my stained glass windows, to love my husband and my friends, and continue writing blog entries. Life 2.0 is good!!
