Seventies Soulchild: daviss, I'm at work.. lol

ProfDru: working on my new blog

AYWalton: lol you got that right, ProfDru!!!

alt: I would think so 3rdthawkins . hereditary is the big picture and inherited are the specific cases passed thru genetics.

Seventies Soulchild: we only got half the day off... lol

ProfDru: Try to finish the first posting

AYWalton: about 10 inches fell on top of slush from freezing rain. crazy weather!

ProfDru: Soulchile, are you snowed in?

Ingrid_Doweary: Crazy indeed, AY.

daviss: hmmm 3rd what is the name of the disease

Seventies Soulchild: The snow here was close to a foot if not more.

daviss: hello ProfDru

3rdthawkins: ok alt, yeah, I think I made a connection with something I was diagnosed with and being legally blind and also my dad and aunt and uncles' (night)blindness, to my grandmother being abused in her childhood. She and her sisters were almost starved to death, and because of Malnutrition and Vitamin A deficiency, that's where the blindness may have come from

Seventies Soulchild: We're not snowed in ProfDru. just fed up with all the snow... lol

Ingrid_Doweary: I had to deliver a shovel to our family car down the street just to clear the windows and car trunk.

AYWalton: I believe it, Ingrid!

Seventies Soulchild: This snow is NUTS.

AYWalton: I am in from 2 hours of shoveling. Hubby is still going at it. I am wiped out!

3rdthawkins: Aarskogg-Scott daviss named after a Norwegian pediatrition and genectiction and an American geneticist

Ingrid_Doweary: Wow, 3rd. How do you record that type of medical legacy?

3rdthawkins: Aarskog-Scott Syndrome it is called I was diagnosed with, and it was described just 10 years before I was born by the Norwegian geneticist and nine 9 years by the American one

daviss: Is that what your doctor diagnosed you with 3rd?

Ingrid_Doweary: Are you saying as a result you are legally blind in at least one eye, 3rd?

3rdthawkins: yes daviss yes Ingrid_Doweary

Ingrid_Doweary: Okay, I'm learning.

daviss: Is that the same as an undeveloped pupil?

3rdthawkins: it was suppose to be from the Female to the Males, so would mean I got it from my mother, but I am having my doubts, perhaps the Grandmother on my dad's side, it was described as the sons get it from their mother,

Ingrid_Doweary: Hey Selma.

AYWalton: greetings, Selma!!

3rdthawkins: hey Selma

alt: hello Selma

Selma: Good afternoon everyone.

Selma: thats what they called them when they got there..they weren't Indian

Selma: Yes, she did daviss

Seventies Soulchild: But being that it is so close to the AL border, I wouldn't be surprised if this was a reference in Alabama
