Day Four, Recovery

Today is our last day at the work site and we have to grout the whole mosaic.

At the end of the day, we pack up our things and clean up the work site.

A view from outside, what will be one of the main entrances when the renovation is completed.

End of day 4!

Day Three, Post-Op

Up close, it's difficult to tell what this is.

With so many little pieces there's always some that don't make contact with the mortar.  We find those when we're peeling and glue them in with epoxy.

They've turned off our light for some electrical work and we can actually photograph the top row now.

Usually it's bleached out in photographs.

Mike installs the last piece.

We finish peeling so that we are ready to start grouting first thing tomorrow morning.

End of day 3!

Day Two, Surgery

We start the day by peeling off the tape and making corrections.

We still have a lot to install so we start that right away as well.

Only Dixie`s first name is the same upside down.

We had to chip out a damaged piece and it ended up a heart.

Gluing in the pieces we corrected.

Mike cuts the first top piece to fit.

End of day cleanup.

End of day two!

Day One, Admission

St. Vincent Carmel Hospital

Our wall.

Mike gets ready to install the first piece.

So far so good.

End of day 1!
