Don't feel much like joking right now....
If I don't seem like I'm up to my normal quota of smart a**ed remarks lately, it's because we're dealing with a bit of an issue right now.
Monday night my uncle (Mom's last surviving sibling) was involved in a plane crash. He's hurt really bad, in fact it's been called a miracle that they managed to get him airlifted to the hospital alive. He has some pretty serious injuries, and all they can do at the moment is keep him sedated and kind of wait for him to stabilize a bit.
Every day without a setback (and so far so good) is a positive, so we're going with that. He has plenty of family and prayers with him, and if he's half the fighter my mom was, he'll be able to hang on. The whole family is staying positive and optimstic, but it does dampen the mood (does this qualify for a captain obvious award?).
We spent the day at the hospital yesterday, and I'm debating going back up tomorrow.
I'm not asking for prayers, because I already know he has a ton of them, but I just wanted to post this to get it out there, and explain why I may not be here cracking jokes as much for a bit.
