On Sunday the 24th we left Tybee Island to drive to Lewisville, NC. Finn had been developing a nasty cough for several days, and it really started getting worse...coughing uncontrollably for long periods of time. We ended up stopping in Mocksville to go to the emergency room on the 24th, and then going again in Winston-Salem the night of the 25th. All of this stress helped make it one of our worst Christmases ever (surpassing the year Lisa got chicken pox). By the time we headed back to Michigan on the 27th, Finn was doing much better. Despite his illness, we still had a great time seeing our friends and family. Here are some photos:

Ukraine has become the self-styled stem cell capital of the world.
There is a trade in stem cells from aborted foetuses, amid unproven claims they can help fight many diseases.
But now there are claims that stem cells are also being harvested from live babies.
