Quick update - all furibondo's are home and accounted for. Claire, interestingly enough, got a fever this week but Matthew stayed fever free, even though they would engage in the occasional lip kiss (Matthew is a strict "kissing on the lips" guy. Claire...not so much). Having the grandparents helping out this week has been a tremendous help.
With Nicole's encouragement (often in the form of knees and kicks in the back) I have started running again as a way to try to deal with the bone crushing anxiety. So far so good. In the absense of family photos, below is a shot I took of a dude who lapped me on the running trail (twice) This should give you some sense of my pace and overall level of physical fitness.
