One day Anni was twirling and singing one of her original compositions.
"It's my gift!" she declared.
Dizzy, she fell with spectacular gracelessness.
Laying on her back on the tile floor she began flapping her arms and legs
as if she were making a snow angel.
"Falling down is also a gift!" says she.

Placeholder post

Just a short note: I have heard from some of you recently. I share your concerns about not hearing news lately. I am posting this as a placeholder so you can let Moreena know your thoughts. --posted by Running2Ks

I left you a couple of messages, and I am hoping and praying that no news is good news. Just another line to let you know that you are always in my thoughts and prayers, and if there is anything else I can do for you, just let me know.

Worried and praying for sweet Anni and all of you. Hoping no news is good news and that Ms. Anni is off the vent and keeping your ear bent with all or her frustrations!

I cannot let my imagination run away with me, so I will simply add extra prayers (to my usual ones) that you and Anni and Frankie are busy playing and can't come to the computer.

We were there yesterday, at the hospital, but could not stop - due to the massive cold I have - not something Moreena or any of the family needs.

You are in our prayers.

As of yesterday morning, when I spoke with Joerg, things were moving in the right direction. I don't want to post details, as that is Moreena's to share, not mine, but Anni is making baby steps towards improvement.

Oh my. I really do try to get away to post, but it's been a hard couple of days with Annika waking up and dealing with the withdrawal. Plus, I like to have something to say. Thanks, Jenn, for letting everyone know that all was still well. Sorry to miss your calls, but I really am running every which way right now.
