We've had some distressing news last night and today:
* My mom is in the hospital (Florida) with a severe (and newly diagnosed) case of diverticulitis
* Rebecca's husband Ken (from the B&B where I've roomed for almost 4 years) is in the hospital with pneumonia and not expected to recover
* My dd's daughter was at the hospital yesterday with a high fever that wouldn't break -- cold, congestion, ear infection, cough ... on her third round of antibiotics.....
* My brother-in-law goes in to the hospital for a stint placement tomorrow ...
So if I'm scarce ... please keep these loved ones in mind ... thanks!
