It All Happens At Once

Last night was one of the busiest Thursdays I've had in a long time.  A number of faces I hadn't seen in a while - for example Danny and, well, um, Danny.  Lotsa people for unbreak_able and Eddie's last hurrah.  They're not gone yet, but it's damn close.

That kept me going - in fact kept me awake.  There's something about a party like that that just gives me a jolt of energy, which is one of the major reasons I do it.

On the other hand, the downside was the voicemail I got from my mom at around 9:00.  They'd just taken my dad in for surgery.  Apparently her discussion with the surgeon wasn't particularly, um, promising in terms of results, so she wasn't in the best of moods.  I need to call her this afternoon, and find out what's going on.

So that's the sitch.  I'm still at home (There are advantages to being a contractor), but I need to pull myself together and head on off to the job.

Dad's Out of Surgery

I just had a long talk with my mom.

The good news is that he made it out of surgery OK. He's apparently much more coherent now, though obviously in considerable pain.

The bad news is that when they went in, they apparently found that a noticeable amount of the bottom of his patella was pulverized. They wired up the main two pieces, and I assume removed the various shards, but I'm not too clear what the prognosis is on his walking again.

Faire Anyone?

My friend Mike just mentioned that the Pittsburg Renaissance Fair is this weekend. It's a small (free) fair that his guild (The one I sorta belonged to for a while) will be going to.

Pittsburg is just a little over an hour's drive from my house.

I'm seriously considering going tomorrow - anyone interested in joining me?
