Taking A Break……

As you know, I’ve mentioned in past posts on having some medical issues and apologized I haven’t been able to post as I use to.  I am going to take a long break, and this will be my last post for a month or so.  I will be getting a total knee replacement this week, and I know I’ll need this break to work on my recovery.  I hope to be back as soon as I am able!

Before I leave, here’s a couple more birds I captured at Blackwater NWR the same day I photographed the American Bald Eagle in my previous post.

Osprey (one of my top five favorite birds!)

If I’m able to, I’ll try to keep up with my fellow bloggers’ posts, even if only to ‘like’ to let you know I’ve stopped by, but I might not leave any comments.  I’m just not so savvy on small devices/cell phones on typing.   🙂

Happy shooting and happy posting while I am away, my friends!  I will miss you!

  1. God speed you fast and complete recovery, Donna. We and your beautiful birds await your return!  Carol Fordonski On Mon, 22 May 2017 02:48:14 +0000

  2. We’ll miss you Donna, but best wishes for a successful surgery and speedy recovery so you can get back to taking your beautiful pictures!

  3. I will miss reading your posts and viewing your photos, but health comes first. Please take care of yourself, and come back with a new, perfectly functioning knee.

  4. Best wishes Donna with your knee. I had one done in Feb and am now getting back to full activity. PT is so very important. You’ll do well.

  6. Donna, I had that done 4 years ( and 5,000 miles) ago. You will be very glad that you did it! The key for me was a great physical therapist and a lot of discipline.

  7. The day will come eventually for me to get a knee replacement. Let me know how it goes. I wish you well, and hope you get some visits from your fine feathered friends as you recover.

  8. I don’t know how I missed this post, it hope you are well on the mend by now, that the worst is behind you. Best wishes for speedy recovery fom all of us, including the Osprey family of three.

  9. Best wishes as the recovery unfolds. My mom had both of her knees replaced a few years ago. I have deep deep empathy for people who have to go through this – I can’t imagine being without knees while healing. The good thing is, she now has a full mobility and a great range of motion! She doesn’t regret it at all. I can say, something that has helped tremendously is Organic Sulfur (it’s MSM, but in a superior form.) She uses a brand called Body Equilibrium. Organic Sulfur may be the key to why wheatgrass and other greens are so beneficial.. I could go on and on 🙂 Best wishes on the recovery. And thank you for the images; I love that you posted a Red Winged Blackbird.. I’m one of the few people I know who actually like these birds!

    • Thanks so much for your comments and best wishes! It’s been only three months and I’m still not full-swing 100%, I try to stay positive. I have also heard of Organic Sulfur from another friend, I need to look into it! Glad to hear your mom has full mobility and great range of motion, I’m still working on that, I do my exercises every day! 🙂

  10. Oh, just now I read this post… May was a hectic month for me.
    My father has a hip replacement and I know how hard it is to recover.
    I am glad you are fine now.
