Quick Update and Happy Easter

We made it safely to Washington, D.C. I am happy to report that my Dad is doing better than expected. He is even sitting up in a chair and taking short walks with assistance. We will not know if the medications work for months. However, doctors now think he has a higher chance of survival than they predicted last week. We do not know whether he will be going to rehab or directly home yet. Please keep him in your prayers. He has a very long road ahead. A little compliment to my kids. They sat on the floor in a tiny corner of the hospital room for hours each day without complaint. They have been brave and well-mannered troopers. 

Dean making his funny spy face!

On one of our trips into the city to see my Dad, we decided to visit the cherry blossoms around the tidal basin. They are at their peak. We were crazy to think we would be able to park the car and see them. There were thousands of people down there. However, we spent an hour crawling past the trees in traffic and got some great views from the car. Anne and Dean tried to pose for a picture in front of the cherry blossoms from the car. It didn't work out that well!

Blessings, Dawn


  1. Happy to hear things are going better than anticipated with your dad. We will continue to pray. I'm glad you all were able to enjoy a little of the offerings of the area too.

  2. We will keep praying and so happy to hear the news.
