Baez was apprehensive about moving into the one-room addition to her family's Vengo Ct. home, which is outfitted with remote-controlled cameras to monitor her health. As the weeks went by, she settled into the stain-resistant space. Baez now spends most days curled on a hide-a-bed, with a newspaper and a magnifying glass or in conversation with one of her granddaughters, who come in to watch movies. (Photo by Daniel C.
