(Who knows what this image was? A ghost in my phone from the Iceland trip last year.)

My upper lips is mostly scab-free, just pink and a little scarred, so, yay. My lower lip/chin, still pretty scabby; and the bruises are starting to change colors. My knee and legs still have a bunch of stuff going on, but generally they work all right. Outside of the knee and a couple of other places, there’s not that much pain any more, so win for that, too. My general feeling is that I was really lucky and that I’ll get out of this as well as anyone could. I am feeling run-down and blue, which is common enough after physical trauma. Wish me well for today, which is my 14-hour day, and is one week since the accident….
