Salivary Gland Biopsy Experience 

Spent half of a morning in the ENT office for a salivary gland biopsy. Found myself waiting for a good while so decided to take a few pics. 


I recommend ice, ibuprofen and don’t plan to talk a lot afterwards. 

Autoimmune diseases are no joke. 

A Visit from a Praying Mantis

So today I was sitting outside enjoying the beautiful weather and this little guy decided to visit. 


Aka Mantis Relgiosa. They have very long front legs that they hold in a position that reminds people of praying. Praying mantids are carnivores, eating mainly insects and other small animals. Many gardeners and farmers welcome mantids, because the insects they eat are often pests that hurt crops. 

The mantids also eat spiders, frogs, lizards, and even small birds.


 They can turn their heads 180 degrees—an entire half circle. They’re well-camouflaged, adapting colors that help them blend with plants.

A visit to the Opthalmologist 


Opthalmology is a branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eyeball. 


An ophthalmologist is a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems. 


Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are both surgical and medical specialists. 

I spent almost 4 hours at the Opthamologist having various tests completed so I kept myself busy photographing the equipment because I find it fascinating.
