I Critique and Process YOUR Image – Episode 29: Danny

This is episode 29 of the video series where I critique and process your image.

Thank You For Your Well Wishes and Positive Vibes!

It’s not the best news but it’s not the worst either

Archie made it through the surgery like a champ and came home that evening...
