First picture at 8 weeks and 3 days, September 8, 2010
Mom called while I was at the doctor, so I pretty much assumed she was on to me by now. But I asked the doctor and he said in no uncertain terms not to tell my family until Week 12. Sorry, mom. Dad moved to rehab after the brain surgery, and started speaking again little by little. But things were still extremely tough. Ash and Janice visited that weekend to cheer me up, and I really wanted to tell them too, but I kept quiet even as I had to subtly ignore the wine they kept pouring for me.
