200,000

Nathan's CaringBridge site went over 200,000 visits sometime in the last couple of days. That blows my mind. Susan created the site 1,213[1] days ago. I know the traffic ebbs and flows depending on Nathan's status (I think we have been getting somewhere around 300 visits a day over this last week of chemo), but just for fun on average we have seen roughly 166 visits per day over a period of 3 years and 4 months.

Wow. Thanks for caring.

[1] I think it is fun that the quickest and simplest way for me to calculate the number of days was to query Oracle with
select sysdate - to_date('2003-04-13', 'yyyy-mm-dd') from dual ;

I "met" Susan and Nathan via an ivillage site last year for Nov. Expecting Moms. I was captivated by your family and I keep up with you guys at least daily, these past weeks your sites are the first ones I check when I'm online. I share your ups and downs with my husband and teenage kids, my daughter who is almost 6 recognizes Nathan's pictures and understands some of the things she's heard me talking about. We are really thinking of you and your family.

That is amazing and impressive! Not only has Nathan's CaringBridge page kept me in the loop from afar, but it has also educated me. For that, I thank you.

As for the amazing Oracle, Jason will love that comment! I find it sad that you can get hit counts on a personal level web site, yet I work in an IT shop where we are not able to provide hit counts to the very heavily utilized web site that I support. DAH!

Lots of love coming to the Gentry family from Boston. 10 hits a day are probably from me.
