Day 18 of 31

I have to say I love all the blogs I have been reading, nothing enthrall me more than the sweet stories of our kids with Ds.

We had an ordinary day here, played with the girls, and fed them, bathed them, loved them. I have been feeling strange all day and finally put my finger on it. It was walking through the radiation wing to get Amanda's scans yesterday, the same place I went for my CT and bone scans in 2003 after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Not a happy memory, the ghosts of cancer past. I am sure anyone who has had cancer or been a caregiver for someone with cancer can understand my feelings. Hard to explain, but so unsettling. Now that I have figured it out, I can work through it, breast cancer awareness month always gets to me anyway. I notice my sister members in my breast cancer support group are very quiet as well.

Thank HF Amanda seems fine, they did not find any tumors on her kidneys. She is tired today, yesterday was exhausting for all of us.

Kara is eating apples, taking the whole thing and chomping on it, it is so wonderful to see, when we brought her home 10 months ago, she did not know how to chew. Now she is eating an apple, wow!

Julia is working with her brother (Eric) she will have a 13 hour day today, she gets to see quite a few weddings, Eric has seen over 1000!

Meghan has been playing with Kara, sill girls like climbing in the clothes hamper together, they don't fit as well as they did, Kara has gotten very big.

The girls are so adorable.
It is wonderful news about Amandas kidneys.
Also is awesome to hear that Kara is now eating apples.
Glad to hear that Julia is getting some new experiences.
