Setbacks

Given that I hardly ever get phone calls at all, two missed calls and a voice mail before I stumbled out of the bedroom this morning are not a good sign.

My stepdad was up and around. Good. But he fell again and broke his arm. It is a minor break. I presume a minor bone break meets the same basic definition as minor surgery: Minor means it's on somebody else.

So the hospital's got him. And once they have their hooks in you, it's a miracle if you get out alive.

The hints I'm reading are that I would be inconvenient if I drove down there. It sounds like every available bed is filled by my step-whatevers at the moment. So I'm maintaining position. Right now I'm planning on going down next weekend.

I appreciate the sympathy you, my readers, have shown me. I'm doing OK for larger values of OK now. I know what we're facing, which is nice. The situation is bad, but it's survivable.
