I'm starting to get phone calls, e-mails, and FB messages from friends who've been concerned by my absence, and I'm thinking this blog is the best venue for an explanation. Ben was in an accident at work three weeks ago, and life has been hectic. It was scary at first, but he's recovering. Aside from some interesting scars, there shouldn't be any lasting damage, and I am SO grateful for that.
He managed to lift 50 pounds with his left arm in physical therapy today (which is a big deal for someone who couldn't even lift his arm a couple of weeks ago), so the doctor has released him to return to work.
For those of you who already knew and are just reading this for an update, thank you for your prayers and your help. I have the best family and friends. I really do.
And that goes for those of you who are just finding out as well. It's not your fault it's taken me this long to say something. If it makes you feel better, you can still pray for him. I'm sure that would make him feel better. :o)
Seriously, though: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
