Hi Catherine, Thank you so much for your kind wishes for my husband's knee replacement surgery. Unfortunately, though the surgery went well, two days later he ended up in the Intensive Care Unit on a ventilator because of a massive infection that threw him into sepsis and respiratory failure. We nearly lost him. (Mike is only 63.) But he is back home now, and on daily IV antibiotics, which they trained me how to do here at home--not something I'd ever aspired to add to my resume, but whatever works! The doctors still haven't determined if the two strains of bacteria growing in his knee came from the initial knee surgery, or were introduced when they aspirated the knee in the ICU trying to find out where the infection was coming from. We may never know, and he may end up on oral antibiotics the rest of his life. He is walking fairly well, though, despite losing several weeks of PT. We still want to hike in the Dolomites next year, so that gives him good motivation to keep up with his exercises! :-)
Denise I hope your husband's knee surgery went well and he is on the way to a good recovery.
Snow remains now gone after a much colder spell. Looked just as pretty with a white carpet.
It is snowing today.....❄️
Looks like they got a decent amount of snow today.
Hi Denise Not sure yet, as we have been to Zell am Zee, St Wolfgang and Traunkirchen over the years with lots of mountain biking and walking. Next year we have two signiicant birthdays and the following year we have a silver wedding anniversary to arrange so we are looking at something different.
Catherine, what parts of the Dolomiti are you thinking of visiting? It all looks so beautiful, hard to narrow down the choices!
P.L., thank you for your reply about the weather, good to know! September is one of our favorite times to travel. We're thinking of doing a Dolomiti/Austria trip. My husband is even having knee-replacement surgery in two weeks so he'll have plenty of time to recover/get back in shape! :-)
So sad, the snow is gone!
Snow has gone as quickly as it arrived.
I should think the snow will be normal on the high areas in fact some have snow all year, even in Britain on the highest mountains in crevices snow will be there for months.
sorry should be Italian Dolomites
Hi Denise Mclnerney; I have been to Austria and the Italian olomites areas in September on many occasions and found no snow except high in the mountains and on the glaciers.
What a beautiful view! This is my first time accessing this camera. I would love to see this in person.
