Odds and Ends

Dad is getting better. His eyes are opening more and more and he is tracking both speech and movement. He smiled for my Sister yesterday and has squeezed both of our hands on command! His doctors are still sleuthing out the source of his infection, but his tests continue to show improvement and his breathing is much better. He is still on the ventilator, and will probably remain on minimal support for a few more days. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Some of you know how terrible I am at self-promotion, so forgive me while I attempt to rectify this situation. Click here to go to the website of the STC Washington, D.C. chapter. Look for this month's edition of the "Capital Letter", which is our chapter's magazine. You'll find a profile of yours truly under the "Member Voices" column. I have no idea why I was chosen to be profiled, but being interviewed was an interesting experience. The next issue will feature the debut of my own column about teleworking, I'll keep you posted.

As of today, I've lost 30 pounds. Most of my pants are either loose or very loose on me, which means I'll have to delve into my wardrobe soon and see what relics from figures past I can find. If nothing turns up, to the Mall I go!

I was supposed to get my hair colored today. Maybe this whole episode is God's way of telling me I'd look terrible as a blonde.

Here's some pictures of last night's dinner: zucchini cakes!
