1) a co-worker's daughter had her 3rd child by C-section yesterday - they knew in advance that it would be a C-section delivery... baby boy and mom are doing well!
2) quick update on my dad (78 years old, had heart bypass surgery Oct 24th - see #449) - he has more energy, and his cholesterol and blood pressure are good! He and my mom are going to visit my cousins in California in February. They live near a beautifully landscaped golf course. Dad's goal is to walk on the path that runs alongside the greens.
