22. February 3rd, 1776

The doctor came again today. Father sat up in his bed. It feels like rolling hills with his health. Up and down, up and down, up and down, up and down. I honestly can’t get my hopes up, because I know something could change at any moment.


Mother and George spent most of the day today with Father, and since George leads our schooling most of the time, we didn’t do much of our studies today. Today was a very good day. The doctor even noted that if everything goes as planned, Father could be walking a few steps. Now that is hope for you, for me, for my family, for everybody!
