"making the world smaller" since 1994-ish

Here's what's up with me:

March 25: The surgeons realized that one of the scalp stretching devices was not in a great place. Scheduled surgery for three days later. A bit of a surprise.

March 28: Had surgery to move one of the scalp stretching devices and put a smaller one in a better place. The surgery was pretty quick, and I had a very light kind of anesthesia which I was able to wake up from almost immediately. I liked that anesthesia a lot and hope they can use it in the future. I went home the same day. Things were a little confusing with my release and medication and the pharmacy, but thanks to my great friends everything got worked out. Luckily, I only needed the pain medication for a couple of days and then I felt a lot better.

April 16: I went to the surgeon to have the stitches removed, but there's one little spot that wasn't quite healed, so they left the stitches in there. I'm having them out next week.

Next week, they're planning to inflate both of the expanders. Then they'll keep inflating them weekly or every other week for a while.

I'm getting back to doing my physical therapy with two people who come to my house. My right arm is almost useless, and my right leg is very weak. Let's hope that once my head is put back together things will start to get better.

I'm also back to my speech therapy. My speech therapist is very good. Since the two strokes and the infection, my aphasia has gotten much worse, but I'm still working hard and hopeful that things will get better.

Don't forget about Dr. Sketchy's every second Sunday at Great Scott in Allston. Here's the Truth Serum group: and the Dr. Sketchy's Boston new Facebook page: Boston/277789979062429

It's been great to see friends and I've been able to get out a bit. If you want to hang out, please call me!

Regularly Scheduled Events :

2nd Sunday : Great Scott is at 1222 Commonwealth Ave. Right at the intersection of Harvard and where the T is.

Dr. Sketchy is the life drawing session you dreamed of in your deviously creative art school head. Hot models with crazy costumes, sometimes genderbending antics, poses that keep your interest for hours, nice folks around you, drinks, and it's cheap. The models talk and keep you entertained, there's good music, you could win prizes for good and bad art! You don't have to be a good artist, or someone who draws everyday. Dr. Sketchy is a great place to start back up with your practice, or to try to pick up a new creative outlet.

We start with short poses to get you warmed up and then move on to longer and longer poses, but that's about where the traditional life drawing session stops...
