In case you’re wondering why I’ve basically dropped off the face of the earth, it’s because I sort of have. For over a week now, I’ve been in Taiwan. I haven’t wanted to say anything about it publicly, because saying something about it publicly seemed like I would be turning this into a big deal. And I was still hoping it wasn’t a big deal.
Well, I’ve stopped hoping. It is a big deal. And seeing as how 1) I’ve always found writing to be therapeutic, and 2) I’m… kinda… supposed to be… you know, a blogger and all, I’ve decided to share my thoughts….
In a nutshell, my dad suffered a massive cerebral hemorrhage on Sunday, December 21st, in Taiwan. When we found out, my mom, sister, and I jumped on the first flight we could get and flew out here. In the backs of our minds, I think we were all hoping that it wouldn’t be anything serious, and he’d be back on his feet pretty quickly, and we could head back and get on with our lives.
It’s been over a week now, and he’s still in intensive care, in a coma. And that means I’m here for a while longer. I have no idea how long at this point. So, I think it’s time to start processing. I guess I’ll start by hitting “Publish” on the random thoughts I’ve been punching into my computer over the past week….
Well… hitting “Publish” after I polish them up just a tad. I am an obsessive reviser/editor, after all. Wouldn’t want to let a stray your-versus-you’re typo slip in….
Pft, who are we kidding. I don’t make that kind of typo.
Stay tuned, yeah?
