Thanks! I really appreciate all the support I've gotten from the Drupal community. It's a really good group of people. I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

Welcome back, Karen. We missed you, but knew that you were going through 
hard times. I'm glad to hear that you were able to care for your father, 
and offer my humble best wishes to you and your family.

I was helping care for my father while he died, which unexpectedly ended up being a 24x7 commitment for the last couple of months. He was starting to get pretty sick while I was at DrupalCon, and things went downhill from there until he passed away last week. I feel badly that my absence created a bottleneck for a lot of people, but glad I could be there for my father to make those last days as good as they could be.
