The weather is slowly changing, technically Spring has arrived. There is more Sun, but it certainly isnโ€™t warm yet. (Although we have spotted the occasionally loonie wearing shorts) The snow is gone. I donโ€™t forsee another snowfall. But, hey, you never know.

Bdot is home! She had quite the ordeal with her flight back. It sounded like ridiculously poor treatment of a customer as she was bounced back and forth between airlines as she tried to rebook her flight, or find a seat on standby. The upshot was her staying awake for nearly 24h straight dealing with the situation. So, that was certainly a disappointing end to her week in Belgium/France. She brought home an assortment of incredible chocolates and cookies. I think it is safe to say I would weight 20-30 pounds more if I lived in Europe. Seemingly ironic huh? ๐Ÿ™‚

I visited my buddy in the hospital again last weekend. I connected with a mutual friend for the visit, it was great to catch-up with MikeMike who I havenโ€™t seen in quite some time. Compared with the discouraging first visit, I was mildly encouraged by the second. My friend was up walking around the hospital floor, slowly, determined, like a zombie, shuffling forward. Physically, he seemed more relaxed, more himself. He also seemed more aware of his surroundings with more apparent interactions. Gaining speech will be a long road I think, he started speech therapy a few days ago. Iโ€™m hoping to visit him this weekend, hopefully, he will continue to improve.
