NIH - Wednesday

I am typing this from the computer room at NIH, in Bethesda, Maryland.
NIH is huge, it is like a little city.
The internet connection and computer use is free to all guests here at NIH.
Gotta love that.
The weather? Well outside it is cold (26 degrees last night) but I have spent the entire trip
lugging around my down jacket. I packed sweaters, scarfs, hats, gloves, etc.,
for this venture into the tunda, and I have used none of that!
Every where we have been is heated; the hotel, cabs/shuttles, and of coarse
NIH is heated. So every where I go, I keep wishing/asking people to
'please turn down the heat" I hate heated air! So much for freezing..:-)
Yesterday I had 2 MRI's, uneventful. Today I go to the eye clinic
and then later I see an ENT, no idea for what. I got to admit,
I love all the medical attention, from people that are actually familar
with NF2. These people are very knowledgeable about NF2,
so not having to explain it every 5 minutes, is very nice.
Last night we ate at Hard Times Cafe (thanks Olivia;-))
We enjoyed it!
