While I'm 800 miles away and unsure when I'll be able to make it back home to New Jersey to meet her and give my sister the biggest of hugs, I'm a bit in the thrall of baby magic. Joe is heading home on a business trip this weekend and will be bringing the first official package of spoilage to my wee niece. He'll have a hard time fitting clothes in his suitcase after he puts all of the baby stuff in it. :)
In less happy medical news, my eye is acting up once more. It's feeling goopy and I'm having blurred, nearly double vision from it so I'm off to visit my friend the eye doctor for the first time since January. While that's good, the loss of vision is troubling and I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that it's something that can be cleared up, is not a new outbreak and is not serious. If you'd be so kind, send some good thoughts my way this afternoon.
Update: I don't want to taint to joy of my niece's birth with ugliness and bad news. For an update on my condition, please see the comments.
