I wish your mom a speedy and full recovery. 🙂
The thanksgiving table looks so nice and I am sure you had a great feast.
I feel the way we look down upon medieval surgical procedures is pretty much the way our surgical procedures will be looked down upon 500-1000 years from now. 🙂 Those procedures were a life-saver once. Urge to live in all animals is stronger than otherwise so unless you were pretty miserable you would have been willing to undergo those surgeries if they could save your life–anesthesia or no anesthesia. 🙂
As always, your article is well-researched and an interesting read. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Love and light ❤
