This is super confusing. Dr West and Dr Weiss are twins? I think we should be told.

darn it! you are so correct! I should have included him on the birthday wishes this morning! Happy Birthday Dr. Weiss! what I want to know is which of you – Dr. West or Dr. Weiss – was the first born of the twins.

Happy birthday to Dr. Weiss as well. Just a coincidence that we have the very same birthday, but I’ve got something like 10-15 years on him. It’s my 45th today.

Happy Belated Birthday to two fellow Taurus babies. I celebrated the 33rd anniversary of my 29th birthday on April 21, so I think I have you both beat on the age thing!


ME: Diagnosed Stage 1A in July 09, ULL, no further treatment. Diagnosed with breast cancer in Feb. 11, again Stage 1. All scans were clear until headaches started in April 2012. In July 2012 was diagnosed with a metastatic brain tumor from lung, surgically removed and treated with cyberknife. Now on Tarceva. Clear scans to date. DAD: Diagnosed stage IV in Dec. 09, was on Tarceva until April 2012, then Alimta once every 3 weeks. November 27, 2012 entered the kingdom of Heaven.
