On December 4 2011 I had to take a family member to the ER and from there she had to be sent out of town to a bigger hospital. She had to undergo emergency surgery and is now in a rehabilitation hospital. Needless to say I have not had the time to do anything between work and hospital visits. I'm not sure how much longer it will take, but until then this blog will sit idle. Actually I don't know if I should start back up again. Seems rather pointless at this juncture.
