Modern technology allows this blind mom to see her newborn son.

Kathy Beitz has been legally blind since she was 11 years old.

She had never even seen a baby before, but with an amazing new technology, she was able to gaze upon her newborn son.

The 29-year-old Ontario woman became the latest recipient of eSight glasses, which use a video camera to record images which are then enhanced and projected onto screens in front of the eyes.

All of it at the link.

****WCGreen Update --Wednesday January 7, 2015****

From his wife:

A Christopher Green update:

OMG! Chris is moving today to Kindred Hospital, a rehab facility, but specifically to the LTAC unit. It is still in Cleveland, just a bit further east from the clinic, up Fairhill. I am so excited!


I decorated his room at the clinic for Christmas and here are the pictures. The last one is Chris in the ICU on Christmas.

Doctors Without Borders gives us another good reason to reject TPP:

Trading Away Health: The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)

March 03, 2013

Unless damaging provisions are removed before negotiations are finalized, the TPP agreement is on track to become the most harmful trade pact ever for access to medicines in developing countries.

The TPP trade deal is currently being negotiated between the U.S. and ten other Pacific Rim nations. The negotiations are being conducted in secret, but leaked drafts of the agreement include aggressive intellectual property (IP) rules that would restrict access to affordable, lifesaving medicines for millions of people.

Proposed by U.S. negotiators, the IP rules enhance patent and data protections for pharmaceutical companies, dismantle public health safeguards enshrined in international law, and obstruct price-lowering generic competition for medicines.

****WCGreen Update -- Sunday, December 21, 2014****

From his wife:

A Christopher Green update:
Last night Chris and I watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, A Wonderful Life and Forest Gump. Talk about the ridiculous to the sublime! We also were visited by two nurses from the Colostomy department. They are talking about Chris getting a temporary Colostomy so that his pressure wound on his coccyx can heal without being infected by stool. We want to talk it over with the transplant team and will talk to them tomorrow.

They are also talking about Chris moving to an LTAC (Long Term Acute Care) facility fairly soon, specifically Kindred. This is the place he was going to back in May, before some problems.
As Chris has been in the ICU for some time now, they moved the contents of his room to storage. I have gotten his guitar, phone, glasses and art supplies so he can use them. You can bet I will get the Christmas tree and bring it up to Chris' tiny room on Christmas.

**Vibes for Crewleader and her brother**

I was in touch with Crewleader last night; her brother is very ill. This will probably be his last Christmas, and he's spending it with her.

She's taking some time off from DU in order to prepare things for him, so we won't see her for a while.

I know I greatly appreciate her daily offerings and I understand the pressure and grief she's laboring under right now...

I wanted to show my support to her, and then I thought many of you would like to do that too...

So, my dear Crewleader, this post is for you! You're in my thoughts, as is your beloved brother. I hope you'll have a wonderful Christmastime with him...

Blessings on you both!
