Not so consistent postings coming your way!

I might not be posting as often as I usually do, and when I do, it will probably be several posts at once. The reason you ask? Last week, I recieved notice that one of my brothers had to be lifelined to a hospital here in Indianapolis (he lives close to the Illinois border) because he had to have surgery to remove a blood clot from his noggin. It had been touch & go, the docs were saying that he would probably be in the regular hospital for 4-6 weeks, then need in patient rehab. BUT. Last Friday, they took the ventilator out and the tube that was draining the excess fluid off of his brain came out too! Sunday he was sitting up & talking just a little. Last night they took him out of the Intensive Care Unit & put him in a regular room! He was very talkative, asking how my kids were, how work was going, etc. Now they are saying that he might be ready for rehab as soon as next week!
This is NOT my brother!

So, but anyway. I am working my regular 8-5, heading to the hospital immediately after work and hanging out with him, since the other siblings had to return to work this week (and they live at least 2 hours away). By the time I'm getting home, I'm exhausted. But I am writing (long hand) my reviews while he dozes and will get them posted asap!

I will have several (4!!) giveaways posted tonight, so look for them. They all look great & I can't wait to read them!

oh, P.S.~ I will try my best to keep the giveaways on schedule! If I post a blog naming the winners, but you don't get an email that day...I WILL GET IT TO YOU! Don't worry. I start the 48 hours from when I email you, not when I post it! Thanks for understanding!
