Warning: Not for the Squeamish 4/22/07

The weather this week has not been for the squeamish. Dad arrived home from the National Association of Broadcasters Convention on Wednesday to a blizzard. Ah Spring in Utah.

The part that is really not for the squeamish are the photos attached to this blog. Joseph has been attending each week an SCI (Spinal cord injury) forum held at the Salt Lake Public Library (first photo). As part of the discussion they had "show and tell". The second photo is of a human arm and shoulder. The explanation of injury and recovery was most impactful with the object lesson. The third photo is of a human brain and spinal cord.

Our body is a miracle. Understanding it and learning to live with it is a challenge. Joseph said he really learned a lot but was glad when it was over. We'll probably say the same thing about our mortal existance.
