I'm unplugging for a few days and heading out to Arizona. My mom fractured the L1 vertebrae in her spine and will be having surgery today. She's been going through some really difficult times and the issue is complicated by high blood pressure and pneumonia. So prayers, good thoughts and good vibes would be appreciated for her and the whole family, particularly my dad who is having a hard time with all this as well.
