What is Beauty?

Rebecca with friend and trainer Merrie Vieco, Rebecca & Harley's dogs Katie & Jake who stayed with her in Oregon during recovery, and Hunter, Rebecca's parent's dog ready to take her first walk outside and on hills 3 days after a major brain surgery
This photo was taken on the afternoon of Thursday, May 19th when she was discharged from the hospital following a smaller surgery by the OHSU facial plastics team to insert a gold weight in her upper left eyelid on the side paralyzed from the surgery. The weight helps Rebecca to close her eyelid and blink at a delayed interval in order to retain moisture. Keeping the eye from drying out is so that the cornea does not become scarred which would cause one to lose vision.

Quote for May 19th in the daily affirmation book "For a Woman's Heart, Thoughts by Women for Women" given to me by my mother-in-law

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

- Helen Keller
OX, my Ugly Doll - his description

What kind of name is OX? No, not like the animal OX, as in HUG and KISS! How can he hug you with such short arms? OX uses his ears! He's not a very good listener, but he puts his ears to good use in many other ways! OX is great at magic, and his best trick is turning your stuff into his stuff. His best buddy Wedgehead calls that stealing, but OX just wants to borrow things from you for a few hundred years. He promises to put everything back when he's done. What he wants to steal most are kisses, whether they're in the chocolate variety or just plain, and he promises to be your friend if you would lend him a hand, or an ear...or like Two Dollars!
