****WCGreen Update -- Sunday, October 12, 2014****

From his wife. This is a much more comprehensive update than we've seen before. She's talking about issues from the very beginning, back in January. You may be surprised at what she's saying here.

A Christopher Green update:
I would like to give an overview of Chris' condition.

Chris is in J 51 room 9, his step down unit.

He still has his old bug in his trachea, and it has migrated to his new lungs. It is presently dormant. Let's hope and pray it stays that way, because we have been told it is antibiotic resistant, He currently has no infection anywhere.

He gets Physical Therapy every weekday. Their goal is to get Chris walking. He has stood, but his feet and back of his legs are very tight.
He gets dialysis 3 times a week (T, Th, Sat.). This dates back to the myriad complications from the original operations.
He continues to enjoy music therapy and play his guitar.
He has a pressure wound on his tail bone and the docs continually brainstorm what is best for Chris.
As this is the 9th month of his hospitalization, he has some depression. He has a good relationship with the pysch doc.
He is frequently tired due to dialysis, depression, etc.
This can affect his staying on the respirator. They continually wean him, and have started trying the trac collar (necessary for talking). This is very important to me because I am home bound with my broken ankle, only allowed 25-50% weight on it and not allowed to drive for 6-8 weeks. Any help with a ride to see him would be greatly appreciated. Who wants to visit him? Please consider bringing me too! Thank you!

This is a collection of historical photos. Some very old, some not; all are worth seeing...

We live in America. Wasn't there a time when we stood for the right of everyone to vote?

I read these posts about how the Republicans are suppressing our inalienable right to vote.

And I feel as though I've been transported to some alien America, where fascism rules and the 1% gets their way.

It feels like a nightmare...

And I am afraid we will never wake up from it.

****WCGreen Update --Saturday October 4, 2014****

From his wife:

A Christopher Green update:

As Chris was having some issues, he was moved to ICU. They were cleared up quickly and he is back on J 51, but in room 9. It is very nice that they keep giving him rooms with the great view.

**October's Contest Theme: The Textures of October**

The October contest will be based on another of the elements of photography: Texture in the context of the month of October.

Think of all the kinds of textures we see in photographs in October. It's fall, and there are many ways to interpret this. Use your imagination! The changing season, the colors, the harvest, the holidays (Octoberfest and Halloween).

I hope this will be fun and a challenge for all of you!

Submissions will be open on October 10th and will run until the 17th or there are 30 submissions, whichever comes first. I wanted to avoid colliding with the Summer Contest.

Please keep your photograph entry no larger than 800 pixels in its longest dimension and under 300K in file size, unless otherwise designated by contest host. If you need help posting a photograph or with image sizing just ask.

Please do not use frames other than small point outline edges.

Post-processing is allowed but a light hand would be appreciated. If there are any questions about what that covers, feel free to ask.

I am eager to see what you've got!
