My dad had a dramatic and very unexpected heath incident the day after Christmas. It was very severe and he is now looking at months of recovery at this point with likely life-long changes in his abilities. There is still a risk of sudden death. Feel free to email me if you want some details, but I don’t feel comfortable putting personal information up on a blog.
I simply urge you to pray for him and our family. Please also be a bit more patient with my emailing/etc. I may be flying home more often as well as taking care of more family matters.
