I know I have some serious updating to do... and I'm really working on it... but in the meantime, I'd really appreciate it if you could kindly send up prayers and positive thoughts to my sister's husband, Shaun. I've just received word that he broke his back today. We don't think he'll be paralyzed, but he's experiencing some numbness. We'll know tomorrow if he needs to have surgery and have more information.
All of this, just in time for us to fly down to visit and celebrate my niece's 8th birthday.
