I generally work about a week in advance on my blog entries, but this is an up-to-date update. My dad is pretty ill after falling at home -- he was putting salt in the water softener. What looked like an injury that was manageable has continued to worsen. He had unexplained low blood pressure and low hemoglobin -- then test results showed he has a ruptured kidney, spleen involvement, and an aortic embolism that is growing in size. If that is not enough, they found that he has bone cancer too. We're told the next 48 hours will be critical, and I'm flying into Indiana tomorrow am.
Please think good thoughts for my dad.
In the meantime I will try to keep up with the blog but forgive me if there is a lapse.
Take care everyone.
