I haven't posted in something like over a week. I've had some stuff going on which interfered with the whole writing process.
My dad went in the hospital, at first to simply get an infection cleaned out. As part of the normal examination process, they discovered he had colon cancer, and scheduled him for surgery.
There's no way to communicate the fear that grips you when a loved one goes through a health crisis. If you haven't been through it, you can't know it. If you have been though it, you know what I mean.
He came through the surgery well, and his recovery looks good. He's 81, and it looks like we'll have him with us for a few more years.
