I just wanted to post a note and tell you all why there has not been any posts/reviews lately. My dad had back surgery on July 12th. He was in the hospital for five days, coming home on the sixth day. Then just two days later he became sick and we ended up taking him via ambulance to the er on July 22nd. He has been in a total of three hospitals and is still in the hospital and will be there for probably a couple more days, then possibly to a rehab type place. His surgery was for bulging discs and stenosious (sp). He now has eight screws and a four inch metal rod in his back as well as they took bone marrow to make a paste to help hold the plastic discs in. This second bought in the hospital ended up being do to multiple infections. He has an infection on the skin that for some reason I can never remember the name of and he has menegitis (sp). It was pretty scary as at one point we were very afraid of what was going to happen. He was heavily medicated and under sedation for seven days.

Needless to say there was about a week or so that I just could not read, I tried but just could not concentrate. Well I am now back to reading when I can as things are still a little busy with fitting in hospital visits every other day. I should be finished with my book in the next day or two so I will be posting a review soon. Thank you for being patient with me.
