… you watch a butterfly laying her eggs, carefully collect the eggs, watch the caterpillars grow and pupate, carefully register every step, and post it all on iNat. When suddenly diagnosed with a serious heart condition and scheduled for angioplasty in a few days, your main worry is if you’ll be able to see the butterflies emerge, and wonder if you could maybe reschedule the procedure, just to be sure.
(It all turned out well: 3 of 4 butterflies emerged right before the procedure, so I was able to register those. Oh, and yes, I’m fine now! :D )
