Thanks for the well wishes. My recovery has been a more or less journey that has been something I travel along most of my life. I have accepted the reality that I am not one of those people that can take his health for granted.

Until my camera makes itself known to me, I will describe the necklace and pendant I got from Snow Lion. It has a five colored braided thread with a saffron fabric sewed pouch with various contents that I'm not sure what they are inside. I'm pretty sure it is a Tibetan Medicine protective amulet, but I don't know for sure. The pouch is about 2 inches square, but it is securely sewed shut so I can't peak inside to see what is in there. I just do remember that it came with a card saying I could order a custom one that was based on my personal information such as birth-date etc. but I lost that card and in addition, Snow Lion now no longer sells things like this :crying:

Maybe someone here will be able to tell me more about what I'm wearing.

Can't help with the amulet identification, sorry.

Just checked in to say Welcome to the board...
