I've had back trouble for quite a while - today I'm finally pain-free, thanks to the injections I had yesterday to treat my two herniated discs and pinched nerve! Beyond that, I really enjoyed seeing the public art at the surgical center for Beacon Orthopedics. In the lobby of the building where testing is done (MRI, etc.), there's a lifesize wood carving of two surgeons working on a man's arm. Even the surgical instruments are included! The man's hand is in a sling, and the tray with instruments is over his body. I took the pictures from the ends of the sculpture because you really can't see all the detail otherwise.
Then there was the one of the baseball player hitting a baseball and the entire sculpture is made of wooden bats and pipes. Some of the bats are getting a bit moldy. The nurse discharging me told me the artist is supposed to replace them when they start looking bad. This practice does the ortho care for the Cincinnati Reds and other local pro athletes as well as aging artists like me. It was snowing and raining, so I took the picture through the car window. Sorry about the rain drops!
