Not To Be Melodramatic Or Anything...
...but my mom had a heart attack today. According to everyone involved, she'll be fine, but as you might expect, that's not the kind of event that leaves a guy in the best mood for cracking jokes about ROM: Spaceknight or whatever.
So needless to say, no content tonight, and I don't know if I'll be back tomorrow with the normal Thursday night reviews either. Assuming nothing else goes haywire, though, regular posting should resume within the next couple of days.
Until then, I have nothing to offer you but a photograph of the two greatest men in American history:
Together again, just as Jah intended.
Mom's okay. According to the doctors, there was no permanent damage, and the fact that she drove herself to the emergency room--stopping to get gas on the way, in an almost freakout-inducing incident of Old Lady Toughness--worked out well, as it kept her from suffering a major heart attack within the next few months.
Surgery wasn't necessary, but she had some stints put into her arteries and she needs to be careful from now on, but honestly? She's already home, and the whole thing feels like a Very Special Episode from a sitcom that went back to normal at the end. So that's a plus!
I told her about all the well-wishing from the blog, and she was very touched, as was I. But I'm still taking the next couple of nights off from the ISB. I'll be back Sunday night (or, y'know, Monday morning).
Thanks again, everybody, from both of us.
