My blog stats haven't been something I've kept much of an eye on this last week, despite being a terrible stat whore. But tonight I took a peek, because it seemed like my counter made a nice little jump from the last time I paid it any attention.
See, when I started blogging about Nova, my stats rose by about half. Since he's gone into the hospital, they've been well over a hundred a day, and that isn't much for some people, but for me, it seems like a whole lot of hits. Yesterday 162 people visited this blog. It's an all time high, a new record, and I know that many many, the majority, of you are here to check in on Nova and wishing him luck and blessings and health and all things good.
I just wanted to make sure you all know how much it means to me. I am touched by the outpouring of love you've all shown us - and I firmly believe that his progress and recovery are partially due to all of you, all the candles lit, all the prayers said, all the positive energies that have been left in comments and my inbox are absolutely part of the reason he's done so well.
There is an African Proverb that says "It takes a village to raise a child."
Thank you for being our village. I love you all!
