February brought....

...a very, very busy month. 

After a stressful week in Florida, Nelson joined me for a second week to obsessively watch his Dad's ventilator, waiting and praying for him to recover enough to breath on his own.  He's getting there....off the ventilator, but still with a tracheotomy and feeding tube.

Meanwhile, life went on.
Helen and friends shot a movie in a cool old warehouse.

My brother and his wife came to stay with the girls
Fun times--she brought chocolate from where she works.

Nelson chopped a lot of wood

and took lots of long walks--great stress relievers.
One day while I was at the hospital he texted me this photo from a walk.

My paperwhites bloomed while I was gone and Helen mailed me a sweet photo.
It made me realize how long I was gone. 

We got home in time for Valentines Day.

And Lizzie's 13th birthday!

Her birthday was 2 weeks ago--she is just getting to celebrate with friends this weekend!

And, just one week after being home for Valentines and Birthday...off to Washington, DC, I went with the girls.  This was partially a trip for work and long planned.

We took the train and the slow travel was a good thing for me.

March came in like a lion, bringing some good snow, but I honestly hope it goes out like a lamb. 
We need things to calm down!

I have been continuing to keep you all in my thoughts, and hoping that things were settling down a bit. Will continue to hold your inlaws in my thoughts, and hope that progress continues to give everyone the hope that brings the strength to get through difficult times! And I LOVE train travel.. wish our country had better train service!

Good to see you posting again. Funny - I just ordered four Taza chocolate bars for the Sundays of Lent. Still praying for your in-laws.

It's May today. Easter came and went. I sure hope things are improving at your end. 2012 didn't start well with that terrible accident but it must be a relief to know the girls are able to cope.
