Gwyneth Rose did great with the laser eye treatment. She'll have another exam next Tuesday, but it may be two weeks before we really know if the treatment is helping. Even with the best outcome, she will probably have slight problems with her extreme peripheral vision, which should not be an issue unless she wants to be a fighter jet pilot.
Tricia is feeling better, but is getting a little anxious to get out of here. We just got back from spending about 45 minutes outside, which she always looks forward to, and hopefully we'll get to visit with Gwyneth together later today after she (G) has got the sedatives out of her system.
> Currently, my Personal Great Strides Fundraising Total is at $573, which is about 5% of my goal for September 13. It is updated on a regular basis by the CFF. It's quick and easy to donate online if you're looking for a way to help us find a cure for this disease!
> As I explained Here, I give myself about 1.5 haircuts per year. I usually cut my own hair, but get my personal barber (hey Steve!) to cut it if I want something other than the buzz. I did cut hair in college, and can do a good job with more than just the buzz if it's not my own head.
> I have cut Tricia's hair, but just a trim a few times to get rid of her split ends. I'm scared to do much more...if I screw up my hair, I just cut it a little shorter and it's good to go.
And, mad props to my friend anita for catching the nod ("I was hot") to Napoleon Dynamite in my Haircut Post (also, the song is from the Nacho Libre soundtrack).
I'm headed off to the Duke Gardens to get some photos of all of the trees and flowers in full bloom!
