Why it's been too quiet around here.
Christmas from hell. No snow. Turned 50. Mom went back to the hospital to re-do a failed hip replacement, and caught stomach flu during rehab. Dad came to visit from Florida, but I had to take him to the emergency room Christmas morning with hemorrhaging kidneys.
Unexpected air travel on short notice. Endless calls to doctors, probate lawyers, and airline reservation clerks speaking with thick Indian accents on bad phone connections with interminable voice-mail menus and hold buttons.
Faustoette turned 13 last Tuesday. Fausto Jr. turns 11 in two weeks.
Everyone survived. Things are getting better slowly. Hope to be back up to speed anon. In the meantime, please pray for us.
