9 month pics

My babies are 9 months and 1 week old tomorrow. We got their 9-month pictures taken today. I'm including a couple so you can see how much they've grown. I picked the one of Jack clapping, because he seems to have taught himself this all on his own. If I clap, he claps. If daddy claps, he claps. Very cute. Since we noticed this, we've tried teaching Will to no avail.

My diet is going well. I've exercised every single day since Wednesday. Okay, that's like 4 days, but still, 4 more days than I went to the Y last week. If the South Beach recipe I make is icky, then I try to eat something else good but I don't beat myself up if it has some sugar, carbs, etc. About half of the recipes I make turn out okay.

Got my body scan results in the mail. I think its bad news, but maybe not horrible news. I guess I won't know until the doctor calls. They saw some 'abnormal' uptake in my throat in the same place as the first scan in July - only this time, smaller and less intense. Thought about freaking out when I read it, but am choosing to believe that maybe it will just mean one more round of radiation. Thinking I'll take a vacation this time, instead of having no fun in the basement.

That's all I got.

Oh, I hope it's not bad news.

Your boys are darling! How amazing that it's been 9 months already!

What sweet boys! Will has got some fantastic eyebrows. I went to get my own brows waxed and took Skeeter with me so she could meet him. She went on and on about how defined he eyebrows were and I thought to myself, "You're the only person who would notice!" Now I catch myself noticing the same thing!

I hope the scan results aren't bad new. What's taking the doctor so long?

Dude. Can those two be ANY cuter? Unpossible!

I am hoping the news isn't all that bad either. Hang tough, hope the doctor brings good interpretation.

I commented last week. I'm the mother of twins who now ALSO has thyroid cancer (mixed pap/follicular, early stage, excellent prog, etc.). Still cancer to me. Anyway, if you'd like to commiserate or crack bad jokes, feel free to email me drbucket at gmail dot com. I will continue to lurk on your blog and appreciate your updates. Julie in CA
