Picture of the Month – December 2009
December 9, one day before I turned 49, my wife and I went California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco so that I could donate one of my kidneys to her. The operations were a success for both of us. I was lucky and got out the hospital in under 48 hours but Lori’s stay was longer due to her operation being more complex and a couple of complications that eventually got solved.
Most of December I was focused on this surgery or recovering from it so I didn’t do much photography. But the rooms at the hospital provided some nice views of San Francisco, a small consolation. I captured this sunset scene one night while doing my walking around the halls of the hospital.
