It's a new stove, she hasn't gotten used to it yet. I didn't have time to leave it properly prepared with loads of dry wood and kindling ready for her. After about half an hour on the phone she got it working. We switched to face time on Facebook and that helped a lot! She's got it up to temp now and it's going well. Hopefully I'll be out of the hospital soon. While in Afghanistan I picked up a blood disorder that causes my immune system to attack my blood. The MIL came over on Christmas, but didn't tell us she was sick. This caused my immune system to go into overload and nearly killed me. I've been laid up in Bangor since Tuesday around midnight. The MIL is making it up to us by dog/house sitting for the next few days so my wife can come see me in the Hospital. She's been forbidden to touch the stove though, because she has no idea what's going on most of the time. I'm willing to pay for the electric heat for a few days.
