Spring Break & Howie Update

Thanks to DMartyr for covering for me while I was away on a family vacation. I had a great time just hanging out with my wife and kids. We got to visit some historic sites and the kids didn't kill each other, so I consider that a minor victory.

I know some of you are wondering what's going on with Howie. I'll give you the quick and not too intrusive into his privacy version.

He's still in the hospital. This is week #2 for him there. The bad news is that after his surgery things went bad and they sent him to the ICU for several days. His main complaint was that they weren't letting him drink anything, not even water. It was IV only.

He's out of the ICU so things are looking better for him in the short term. He's on a liquid diet, which really sucks, but at least he's not perpetually thirsty.

I'll let him tell you why he had to go in for surgery if and when he's ready to talk about it. The reason I'm writing about this at all is because I know a lot of you care for Howie and I'd like you to keep him in your prayers.
