**TUESDAY EVENING UPDATE** — Mom is recovering just fine from the emergency surgery to fix the burst appendix. The doctors and nurses have been great; it makes me thankful to live in this country when I meet hard-working people like that who are giving up their Christmas holiday to help people in need. Again, many many thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
There are moments once in a while when our advances in technology really do amaze me. I’m having one of those moments today.
Unfortunately, my Mom is spending this Christmas Eve in an emergency room bed with possible appendicitis. Tests aren’t done yet. This comes two weeks after her surgery — so she DEFINITELY is looking forward to 2008!!
Anyway, isn’t it kind of weird that I can live-blog from an emergency room ward? It is better than watching bad television on the ER wall. And, we are also using my computer to listen to Christmas songs from my iTunes collection.
I hope everyone has a very nice Christmas and may God bless you and your families today and always.
