Sandy - I have no advice, but I'm very interested in what people have to say too.
Mommy to Nate and expecting a little girl Nov. 2012
Just a little suggestion for the future. We keep all our photos on a personal web photo site that way if I would lose the pictures they would be there. I also post them on facebook too and we also have a back up hard drive on our computer. So I think we have them backed up enough. I know there are free sites you can put your photos on. Some of them you might even be able to do passwords so if you don't want them pubilic. I am not sure, you would have to do some research but it is an idea.
Sorry about your uncle. My uncle's brother also has cancer and he's not going to make it. By the time they found it, it was too late.

Sarah- Thanks for the help. After talking to several friends and the posts on here,
Sandy, I think y ou are worrying too much, too soon!
My personal experience: When I was a kid, we lived in a 3 bedroom house. The smallest room was where we kept all the toys. The biggest room was for me, my sister and my baby brother (since he 6 months old, before that, my parents shared their room with him). Neither of us remembers one single night when we woke up to his cries. Maybe he was a good sleeper, but It's more likely that we just got used to baby cries and just rolled over and kept sleeping.
In any case, I think if you ask, you will find tons of stories supporting each side of the argument... My point is that you simply can't know what kind of sleeper your next baby will be, and if his/her cries will bother David.
If your DH is set on leaving one room as a spare, I would let him for now.... If the new baby turns out to be a horrible sleeper, circumstances will undoubtedly change DH's mind!!!! HTH!
Andi - Praying for your uncle and hope you get to see him soon.
Sandy - Praying for your uncle's brother as well.
