    I'll focus on my new DE razors this month. I will, however, use Gillette Adjustable every Wednesday. Brushes, soap , after shaves, and bowls will be whatever I feel like using.

    I was able to get in to see the Doctors today. The CT scan indicated no obstructions, blockages, or obvious signs of diverticulitis recurrence which is good news. The pain is lost likely related to scar tissue tearing between skin and mesh. I'll follow up with the GI doctor as his schedule allows. I wanted to thank you all for your prayers.

    Maybe I should have said newer razors. I really like using vintage razors. I have my 2 Timeless, Bluebeards Revenge, 2 Merkur, and Blackland.

    It's the best news I could have hoped for today. At least there is no reason to worry and that's worth a lot.

    I'm sticking with improving technique this month. I'm using almost all Proraso red, except for the blue balm, because it feels so good in the evening. I'm waiting on some Stirling Baker Street aftershave splash.
