A follow up article about Christian's status is here.
And while I am on that subject I just want to say that I love my brother-in-law, Mr. Nielson. To see him gingerly moving around a la C-3PO is inspiring to me. His faith is incredibly strong. We had some good laughs while visiting him and it helped me remember that happier times will keep coming.
And, I really want to mention that also while we were there he rode his sister's green beach cruiser around the backyard. The girls were cheering him on.
