There’s some personal news I need to tell y’all about. It’s not good news, and I’m going to keep it short. My dad had a stroke a little over a week ago; he’s still in the hospital, and he probably will be for a while. The tests show that it was a moderate stroke, but he wasn’t in good health even before the stroke happened, and while he’s not in any immediate danger, he’s not in good shape either. He’s heavily sedated and on a respirator (he got pneumonia in the hospital), he has been for several days, and they can’t really evaluate the damage or give us an idea of the prognosis until he’s off both of those things and they can talk to him.
I don’t want to get into a whole thing about it right now. I just wanted to let my regular readers know that I may not be blogging quite as regularly as I usually do, and when I do I may not always be my usual chipper self for a while. And for the love of all that is beautiful in this world, please do not send me (or my dad) your prayers. Dad and I are both atheists, and we’d much rather just have your kind thoughts. Thanks.
