I posted here about my brain surgery last month and the recovery. Thanks to all who commented on the blog and sent emails. I deeply appreciate your good wishes.
I’m doing much better now. I can get around with a cane — the walker is gathering dust – which means I have a free hand to carry stuff. I am going to outpatient physical therapy sessions twice a week at CHOMP, and making progress at a gratifying rate. I saw my surgeon at UCSF for a follow-up visit, and he said that everything looked good. I am still hoping for a complete recovery and full leg function.
UCSF neurology says that I need to stay on the Keppra (anti-seizure med) until January, but that I can resume driving until I begin to taper off the drug in January.
I still am not ready to do photography in the field, but I’m having a good time taking pictures out my studio window. I’ve sprinkled come samples throughout this post.
Thanks again for all the support.

Happy to hear you’re recovering, Jim.
You may not be “ready to do photography in the field”, but many photographers would be happy to have made just one of these pictures taken from your studio window.
So great to learn that you are recovering at a steady clip. I’m sure I’m not alone in being happy to see this post.
