A great day in our little corner of the world! Luke and I made a very early morning trek to Duke for a follow up exam on his eyes. The surgeon who assisted in the operation did a very thorough exam and Luke's vision is nearly perfect. That hasn't happened in almost 4 years of treatment. We had to wait a little while to see the "big cheese", the main surgeon. I'm so proud of Luke and his behavior at all of his appointments. He always finds a way to entertain himself. Dr. Buckley spent all of 3.5 minutes with us but seemed satisified with his handiwork. He asked us to come back in six months, of course. Luke didn't seem to grasp the significance of the good news, but I was thrilled.
Upward Basketball was the second major event of our day. Luke is playing for the first time ever and Thursday was his first practice. So entertaining to see all the little boys and their coaches chasing basketballs around the gym. Brings back fond memories of my first days of b-ball. Steve stayed with Luke at practice and I brought the little guys back home for dinner and bedtime. The third piece of exciting news turned up quite unexpectedly in my 'in' box: an offer on our house! Hooray! After some negotiating it looks like this deal just might work out. What a relief that would be.
