I know the song is pretty much owned by Nina Simone. And, yes, this is Michael Buble - a bit too much shmarm for me, usually...but...

Congratulations my brother, Martin, and his wife, Julie, on the arrival of their twin girls, Norah and Ella, yesterday!

This Past Friday

I cant tell you why, but the past week has felt a little low, emotionally speaking.

I've spent a longer amount of time asleep, with a huge increase in the length of my naps. Between naps and some rainy weather, I also haven't gone out as much this week.

Now that we're most of the way through the weekend, I might have figured out one reason why I've been in a funk.

Friday was the 3rd anniversary of my second opinion at Johns Hopkins. Statistically, I'm fortunate to be alive.

That's a  strange fact to wrap your head around.

I'm also struggling a lot more  with my speech.

My naps feel like they're unavoidable, like I need to crash and sleep. The problem is, with the length of my naps, I feel like the days are passing me by.

Then, Saturday, we took the training wheels off Cora's bike. She picked it up right away, and I cried. Milestones.
