Good news comes in twos!

Man, after a month of frustration with my mom's cancer situation, she finally got the post-op visit with an oncologist. And she finally got good news. It's "only" uterine cancer. It's actually been downgraded to stage 1 (which is MUCH MUCH better than stage 3!). Without chemo, the survival rate is 50%. With chemo, it's up to 65%. Much better odds, especially since it is an aggressive cancer. We'll be heading up this weekend to spend some time with should be a much happier trip now!

In other medicalish news, I have a new nephew! My oldest brother, Daniel, and his wife, Deon, had their little baby, Emmett, today. He weighed in at a paltry 10 lbs 8 oz and was 21 3/4 inches long.
Here's a few picts of the happy family last year, plus the new bebe. (I couldn't figure out how to just get the one pict of the new you get the whole family!) Congrats, Daniel and Deon!
This is the new baby, cute "little" Emmett.
