It's been quite a week and I have to do this from my phone, so please forgive any glaring grammatical errors. Long story short, I was notified over the weekend that my mother had suffered a heart attack and was being transferred to a better facility for heart health. I flew home Sunday and I've been with her at the hospital since. She had a quintuple bypass and is recovering very well at this point.
I am aware that I made some commitments and I have not followed up on them. I'm sorry for that. I swear I will as soon as things return to normal and I am able to reliably access the Internet again.
