Yes, I am having a great time! I am headed home at the moment. I will be there about five weeks and will head back to Central America.

Hi John!

I'm sorry, I got home November 30. I had a lot more pictures, but they got lost in my computer! But, I will be leaving again Dec 30 for Central America. Plan to be gone close to three months. I don't plan on doing a RR for this trip, but I will have SPOT on.

Donnie

Hi!


I have been home for about three weeks and will be headed back to Central America in a week and a half.

Tracy's vision is very very slowly getting better. She was at the eye specialist yesterday. While she has not realized any improvement in a while in what he sees, the test they perform indicate steady improvement. She is testing at 20/40. They have prescribed two different sets of prescription glasses, but neither have helped her. The specialist expects her to eventually have her normal eye sight which was 20/15, but no one knows how long that will be. At this time she can not drive a car or anything of that nature. At eight to ten feet she can recognize me, but she cannot see me clearly. When she is holding her daughter, she can see her clearly, but only in black and white. Color will be the last thing she regains.

Madison is doing great! Ten months old Dec 15. Crawling everywhere and getting into everything! She does stand on her own for a few seconds at a time. She should be walking before long.. In the past couple of months, she has gotten a lot taller and slimed down considerably. She is in approximately the 95 percentile on height for her age and 85 percentile of weight. Her ability to get in trouble is growing more rapidly than Tracy's ability to see.

I will be leaving for Central America in the morning. I plan to make it all the way to Panama this time! ha ha I will stop by and visit with Tracy on the way down and when I come back home. I should arrive back home between mid March and the first of April. I don't plan on doing a Ride Report for this trip, but I will have my SPOT turned on.
