Quick Note

Isn't this pretty. It's Beth R's wallhanging made for her daughter to hang in her office. She said her daughter likes Claude Monet. This is her second of this waterlily she's made.

We just wanted to update everyone that Bob is doing well, gaining strength. He has therapists nearly daily, 5 days a week.

Yesterday he had his first outing since he came home on Oct. 20. He went to see Dr. Herceg about the eye problem that developed when he was in the hospital.

The doctor who saw him in hospital said "Dry macular degeneration, call my office for an appointment when you get out of here."

We decided not to do that, but a appointment was set up with the office where I go.

A preliminary exam was done and his records were requested from the hospital.

After a thorough exam yesterday, Dr. said "there is a little macular but this is Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy. The blood work and information indicates this. The optic nerve is pale."

The doctor will keep a close watch on his eyes and will see him in early January.

Possibly it will improve. We are hopeful and praying.
