Four Tattoos

~During chemo treatments I developed pretty bad neuropathy in my feet.  Since that time I have been a self-labeled “fall risk” because at least twice a day I have a ‘near miss’ where I stumble.  Until recently I’ve been able to prevent an actual fall.  Saturday that roll came to an end when I took …
