A place to unwind and spend some time yakking.

I can see your eyes again

Yesterday, I took Rosie and Tee to visit Deadhead Girl's son, Skippy, in the hospital. He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes seven years ago, and for the past year he's really had a tough go of it, logging in six hospital visits.

I talked to Deadhead Girl on the phone Tuesday night, and in an effort to make her laugh, I told her Tee lost ten pounds. The first words out of her mouth-- "He got a hair cut?" Yup, he had to endure a hair cut to wrestle without a skull cap (that's a whole other story; suffice it to say that if you have thick hair, slicky skull caps aren't very helpful).

Skippy must not have believed his mom when she told him about Tee's haircut. He was grinning from ear to ear when he spotted us walking down the hospital hallway, and when Tee walked into his room, he said, "You really did get a hair cut."

I think Skippy would get a kick out of this little film linked on Lee and Rich's Punk Rock Parents. It's titled Stop Emo Haircuts. Watch it in celebration of the fact we can see Tee's eyes and his haircut pasted a grin on Skippy's face.

UPDATE: Skippy is now home, but the doctors at the hospital were unable pinpoint exactly what's causing the health problems he's experiencing.
