We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming...

for the following updates:

1. We are happy to report that Drew's scoliosis continues to appear to be resolving. Another x-ray today revealed the curve is down to 19 degrees, which is half of what it was in April. The specialist reminded us that 90% of these cases do resolve, and everything about Drew's case makes him think he will be one of the lucky ones. We go back in six months for another x-ray. Prayers answered!

2. Tonight was Open House for the babies' new school. We met their teachers, and they explored their room. Drew loved the chairs, which gave him just the leverage he needed to climb onto the tables. Emily loved the toys, especially the light-up one. I took it as a good sign that they cried when we left. We'll see when the show goes live on Monday!

3. To celebrate a straighter spine and a successful Open House, we gave the babies their first taste of chocolate milk along with a trip to the toy store. They slurped happily as we picked up a new tea set and a music table.



4. As Hurricane Irene bears down on NC, my parents, sister, and nephew are joining us tonight for a sleep-over hurricane party. Our house doesn't have any trees around it, so we decided it's safer to hunker down here than at my parents where they are surrounded by huge, fragile pecan trees. We've got pizza, chocolate chips cookies, air mattresses, an Adam Sadler movie, internet for blogging, popcorn, coffee, the Weather Channel, milk for cookies and cereal, bread for French toast, and finally...sleeping babies.

Sounds like the daycare is going to be a lot of fun for your little guys. This will be a whole new adventure.

Enjoy your hurricane party! Be careful-- I'll be praying for your safety.

I hope you all remain safe tonight and tomorrow and have lots of fun! So glad to hear about Drew's spine. We watch the Dancing Queen closely for scoliosis as well--one of her many manifestations of the 22q deletion. Enjoy your weekend!
