Finally 24 weeks!

You can really see the pregnancy mask in this picture (brown patches)
Bare belly (note stretch mark on bottom right, oh and keloid scar from diagnostic laproscopy three years ago!)

On a good note, I am feeling much better! I have been taking the daily  potassium pills to help increase my potassium level (it was low), as well as the daily antibiotic for the pneumonia. I can finally breathe and sleep normally again, woo-hoo! I go to see my cardiologist tomorrow with my wife (she is not happy with the care he has provided thus far... we may be switching soon). Sadly, my family and I said our final goodbyes to my Uncle Mike yesterday... I just hope he has found the peace he couldn't find while living. Otherwise nothing else new... next ultrasound is on August 27th :)!
