It’s 12:30 am in Los Angeles and I just got home a little while ago. This evening we rushed my father to the hospital for emergency surgery. He’s doing ok now, and I’m very relieved.

I was feeling very blue, and then I found all your sweet comments on my Thursday giveaway post. It just lifted my spirits. Thank you. Thank you.

UPDATE. 9:23 am.
I getting ready to go to the hospital to see my father. He’s doing much better!!! I just wanted to thank you for all the lovely notes! I’m so very touched.
