We recently went to Portland, OR for a follow up visit to Alan's eye surgeon.
All is fine with that. The piece of tumor that he was unable to remove because it was to close to the optical nerve has not grown so we are good there for now. He has another follow up in 6 months.

We took the tram from OSMC to Casey Eye Institute and this is the view of Portland from the tram

We went to a Mediterranean Restaurant for lunch and I ordered a spinach, mozzerrlla cheese pizza. It was delicious. Each table is served a huge piece of their flat bread. OMG! It was probably 30 inches in diameter.

It was warm and you just tear off a piece and dip it in Hummis. It was sooooo good. We ate half for lunch and took the rest back to our hotel room for dinner so we ate the whole thing!

Oh by the way...the day we left for Portland I weighed myself and I have finally reached my weight loss goal. In fact I am 2 lbs under my goal so this was a celebration!
