I apologize for this really long period of silence and hope to begin writing here again soon.

Thank you all who wrote to wish my father a quick recovery - thank you so much!

He is still in the hospital, doing relatively well: the most serious problem now is that he can barely speak - can't say his name, can't say where he lives. But he went to look for a TV set on the third day or so and got really upset that they didn't have Channel 5 there - very much like my father.

Marta and I have decided to stay in Pushcha Vodytsya for one more month, till mid-October. If I could, I'd move here for good.

As always, it's really hard to keep writing after such a pause, so I'll stop here.

Again, thank you all for prayers/wishes/positive thoughts - and my very warmest wishes.


  1. Thank you for the update. I hope he recovers and all is well. I am glad that you are having a good time.

  2. I was surprised about you staying longer. At first it seemed that it was a bit difficult living there - a bit isolated.

    But it's surprising how quickly you get used to living somewhere, especially with small children, when it's easy to fill your day.

  3. best wishes for a quick and good recovery.
