I had a lovely time visiting my granddaughters (and their parents) this last Halloween weekend. Sofia was a Bee in honor of a favorite German cartoon character, Biena Maja, and little Clara was a pumpkin. We enjoyed some of the last lovely weather of the autumn of 2010. Gorgeous fall color driving across Pennsylvania on I 80!
I drove home on Monday, voted early on Tuesday and drove off to Pittsburgh to see a doctor at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Shadyside, a very big center for melanoma research. I was truly impressed with the doctor/scientist I saw. He took a lot of time to explain many things to me, and drew pictures, and it looks as though there may be a chance I won’t have to have interferon therapy. The slides from earlier tests are being reexamined. This doctor gave me a lot of confidence.
While in Bellefonte, Emily and I spent some time repairing some things of the girls. Clara’s backpack only said “LAR” so we reattached the C and the A. Sofia had a NASA patch I bought for her which was about the joint German American project SOFIA which stands for Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy. And we worked on a little dog which is made mostly of quilt yo-yos. This is still being worked on! But we had so much fun hanging out together and playing with the girls. I am so blessed! And this is the special month to appreciate that!
