Greetings fellow bloggers,
Sorry for the long absence. Since returning from our Paris trip in January, our family has been quite busy getting back into the real world. Dan had to immediately start prepping for a big trial that was weeks away. Meanwhile, I was busy getting little Daniel back on our daily home and activity routine while at the same time coordinating my family's upcoming reunion in July as well as working on a 501c for a non-profit cultural outreach organization I started back in 1999.
However, all of this activity was stopped abruptly by a tragedy that has literally shaken our family's foundation.
On March 8, 2010, my partner's twin sister, Dana, suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and was rushed to her local trauma center in Reno, Nevada. In a coma, she was put on life support. The following day she was transported via a medi-vac flight to UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco for an emergency operation that evening.
She is still in critical condition in the Neuro-Intensive Care Unit. Since her surgery Dana has undergone 3 angiograms so far due to vaso spasms.

I hope to start blogging regularly again soon in an effort to regain some sense of normalcy despite this very troubling situation. Please keep Dana in your thoughts and prayers. She has survived a lot so far and I know the power of prayer and positive thinking has helped and she will come back to us.
