Mastodon Trees —


Poem of the Day number 11: Trees, by Joyce Kilmer

I am safely home again after emergency brain surgery. I had a burr hole craniotomy to relieve pressure in my skull that was caused by a mysterious subdural hematoma. Funny hair-do is because half my hair is gone and I have an alarming Frankenstein’s Monster wound, and I don’t want to scare anyone! Also have not washed my hair in nine days. Yikes.

I hope all my friends and listeners are safe during this global Covid-19 pandemic. Please please please shelter in place, wear a mask if you must go out, and wash your hands obsessively.

My hospital, UCSF, is braced for impact but every nurse, doctor, cleaning person, and food service person is showing up and doing their job to keep us well. Please do your part to stop the spread!
