Sometimes there are more important things than bicycles.

So I've been off the bike for a few weeks and that will hopefully stretch into a few months. Long story very short, Charissa has had some pregnancy complications with our unborn son Levi. It's called Amniotic Band Syndrome (ABS) and basically the inner Amniotic membrane ruptures and shreds into these thin bands which can wrap around the baby and cause all sorts of problems. Levi has bands affecting both hands. We took a week long trip to Cincinnati to see specialists and have fetal surgery to repair what they could. The challenge now is just keeping the little guy cooking as long as we can. ABS pretty much guarantees a premature birth due to the membranes being compromised. More details and our account of the whole thing so far can be found here.

Your prayers are always appreciated.
