I apologize for being M.I.A. all of a sudden.  However, three weeks ago my mother got sick.  Really, really sick.  As I type this I am at her bedside in Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids.

She has complications from H1N1 and viral pneumonia.  She has been in a medically induced coma and life support for three weeks.  It's been up and down and she's had seven surgical procedures since then, the most recent one happening very early Friday morning.  I will not go into much more detail than that here, I want to respect my Mom's privacy.

So, with that, and school, this falls to the bottom of the list.  I will be back when life calms down, I promise.

Stay safe, and hug your loved ones.
