I'm outta here!

We're on our way! While we're driving, I thought I'd leave you guys this article to chew on. Does this make any sense to you? Who thought to try this? And, is this what they mean by eye teeth? (har!)

Blind Irishman sees with the aid of son's tooth in his eye

An Irishman blinded by an explosion two years ago has had his sight restored after doctors inserted his son's tooth in his eye, he said on Wednesday...

The technique, pioneered in Italy in the 1960s, involves creating a support for an artificial cornea from the patient's own tooth and the surrounding bone...

McNichol's right eye socket was rebuilt, part of the tooth inserted and a lens inserted in a hole drilled in the tooth...

"Now I have enough sight for me to get around and I can watch television. I have come out from complete darkness to be able to do simple things," McNichol said.
What do you suppose it looks like? Now I'm really curious.

Take care!

Un-effing-believable!!!! I'm curious myself.
Oh, where are my manners....

Have fun on the road!
Eye teeth - hahahaha!

That is really weird, but I guess if it's working for him, great!

Have a good trip!
that is weird!

k, I've told you a bunch of times to have a fun & safe trip.

Hugs, we'll miss you!
Enjot the trip!
Enjoy your Iowa trip!

That "seeing eye" tooth story is very strange!
I'm glad the guy got some vision back though, but boy is that weird.
