i was upgrading a remote machine from 7.1 to 8.1 with freebsd-update.

the "freebsd-update -r 8.1-RELEASE upgrade" phase was complete and i had

# freebsd-update install
Installing updates...

when the wifi on my local computer went away. eventually i restarted the
wifi interface but the ssh session didn't recover.

i don't know if the freebsd-update command completed or not. or how to
find out. and if it did not, what to do next.

i'd be most grateful for any help.
