LAST NIGHT’S PARTIES: Zarwin Baum & Citrin Cooperman Celebrity Casino Night & Funky Bresta
Hope you caught my earlier entry about the opening of Century 21. Long story short, with an important lesson, I went hiking in August. My legs got scratch walking through Tinicum Park trying to photograph a few birds. The briar cut me, but I thought I had poison ivy. I later got an infection, but thought I was too busy to take care of it as it was the Social Season. Last week I got a high fever, I thought I had the flu, it turns out it was my infection going to the next level. Went to the doctors and they freaked out, sent me to the ER (UofP) where they had me wait for 7hrs before they saw me. That was annoying. So I am doing heavy antibiotics, and bed rest or they want me in the hospital for a 4 day antibiotic drip. So I don’t want that. Thanks so much to my sister Janine for contacting my clients, for arranging other photographers to take the jobs I was going to shoot. That was a herculean feat. Thanks to Mike Hirata for shooting about 6 events I was schedule to shoot, and Christie Honigman for shooting the two events last night.
