This is an old picture of us. We never lay together anymore like this and mom wishes we would be more nice to one another. We have some news about our dad that we would like to share. Our mom and dad went to his followup appointment about his biopsy and his sleep study. We didn't get such great news, but it is not all bad either. With the sleep study they found that dad was stopping breathing every 30 seconds. That is not such good news but they are going to give him a CPAP machine that will make him stop snoring and make him get some good sleep. His snoring has been going on for 10 years so we can't wait for him to finally sleep well and allow mom and the new baby to sleep as well. As for the biopsy on his larynx they found moderate dysplasia. Mom says that dysplasia means abnormal cells. There are 3 forms before they are cancerous, mild, moderate, severe. That they found it at all is just a lucky break and our dad is only 25 (which seems old to us) is good. Now our dad has to go every 6 weeks to get the camera thing shoved up his nose and down his throat to keep an eye on it. If anything returns they will take it out. Most people who have this type are heavy smokers and when they find anything on the larynx it is later in life. Our dad does not smoke but did grow up around smoking. We would like to encourage anyone who smokes to stop and think about what you could be doing to your body but more importantly, look at the others around you, especially kids. Enough of the doom and gloom. We will need continuous purrs from everyone through this but we are glad that we have the ability to know this early and to keep an eye on it. As for our mom, she goes to the doctor today to checkup on the baby and hopefully schedule some sort of picture taking of it inside her. This sounds weird but we'll let you know how it goes. Oh, and its snowing again. Maybe another 4 inches by tonight. Mom will take a picture to show later. Sorry for the wordy post.
