NEWS FLASH

Thea has asked me to let you all know how much she appreciates all of your expressions of concern. She recently had surgery on her left eye for cataracts, followed a few days later by a more serious surgery to hopefully stop or at least slow down a rapidly advancing Glaucoma in her right eye. She's recovering well, but it should take six to eight weeks.

That's pretty rough on a person as active and full of go as Thea! She has worn glasses for near-sightedness since the third grade. Now, she is suddenly faced with being somewhat far-sighted and unable to wear glasses for the duration. She can't see to read emails or respond to them, can't even text, and has strict instructions not to physically strain her eye, like by bending over. In the garden that's rough. She loves her garden!

I can't remember the last time we watched a movie.

But the good news is that the pain has diminished appreciably, and her right eye is no longer the color of a candy apple red hot rod. Just a bit red in the corner.

Also, you can expect more news sometime during August having to do with, you guessed it, Kachinas!
