INOBTRUSIVE

This post of inobtrusive or inconspicuous objects and subjects was more challenging.  (in the meaning that they do not immediately catches one’s eye, or hard to discover, subtle)
As an artist I look mostly more for the obvious, or conspicuous, because I want to give a clear message:)

And a closer look (of the sky at the end ) on can see the simplest
of doors of the bigger barn in Amado county. Sorry, I couldn’t come closer,
since I didn’t want to step uninvited on this farm property.

What did the waving hand of our son in law mean? It was much more than just “goodbye.”
It was the first time after Hub’s surgery a few months ago,  and out to celebrate the birthday
of one of their children. We suspected they had chosen  a restaurant only halfway to their house,
since they had no idea of Hub’s physical condition was.

What happened, and the reason that our daughter was still so nervous and worried about her dad
was because in the same week hubs had his surgery, one of her husband’s co-workers
had the same surgery, and that one turned out a big failure.
For 3 weeks after his surgery he had still
been laying on the couch in much pain.
Hubs interrupted his story, “Laying on the couch makes
it worse, it’s not what you do after this surgery.
He needs to be moving and walking! I would go
back to this doc to tell him that the surgery was not successful!”
(he eventually had a second surgery)

Anyways we had a great time eating with them. When we went outside,
and stopped on the way to the parking place, because the kids saw a big dog,
and chatted with the owner. Resuming their way to go
to the car, our son in law casually
turned around to put up his hand. In a way saying ,
“We are relieved, life is good, because we know
now, you(Hubs) are okay and we will see you soon!”
An inobtrusive gesture can be just as meaningful!

Most parrots have wild obtrusive colors,
but this one is a nice subdued blue and grey

San Diego. You fit right in this post, birdie!

the year, like where I live. Capture of Hubs.

    I wish your husband a complete recovery, Jesh. Taking control of our health is a great idea and choosing carefully our doctors is half the battle won. The support of family and friends is necessary and invaluable. Sounds as though your husband has all of these things going for him. I love the photo of the old barns!

    Seeing the crepe place reminded me of a crepe place that I used to love when I was a boy. It was in South Coast plaza and called “The Magic Pan”. It’s been gone for years and I can’t even remember when it closed.

      Since I am the sister of an MD. I also take in consideration that there are average, as well as excellent doctors. If you know how thorough he was with his examinations (and he required me to be present!) and his explanations, one would know right away to which category he belonged. Also, he didn’t take any changes. For this surgery, people are mostly stay the day of, but he wanted to stay Hubs overnight, because “so much was going on …” Since I worked at Kaiser Permanente for a year, I knew this was far above the care of the average surgeon.

      Thank you Janet! Right after surgery they wanted him to stay the night and had 3 kinds of monitors attached to his body. Staying the night after this surgery is not common, but I had prayed, so I knew this was not the end. His recovery is complete and has all his strength is back – he’s moving tree trunks, removing weeds, etc. today. A big thanks to God, our healer!

      Guess it depends on what the surgery was for. All the pain was for Hubs before the surgery, so after, his body had to adjust, but all the pain was gone, and with the catheter being gone, it was also much more comfortable.This surgery was a few months ago, so he is back to normal, also in strength -am so thankful!
