I hope it works so I don’t have to have surgery to connect the bones together for healing.

Carmelite Monastery

Heather and I headed off to Pittsford, NY to visit my sister, the Sister at the Carmelite Monastery. Heather hadn’t seen her for 12 years. We enjoyed our visit spread over a late afternoon and morning before we headed to Baltimore to visit our parents. She visits behind the grate as you can see from the photo. Heather is trying to take a photo so the bars do not show up. Sister looks ageless to us.
