Sorry about disappearing without a word for a couple of days but my Mom went into the hospital unexpectedly Friday afternoon and I had to take off immediately and head down there; it's three hours from where I live. She was just in the hospital a month ago and had a cardiac stent put in for a 98% blockage in an artery. She is not well and is still in the hospital with many more problems now. I came back home to grab more clothes and my own medications and stuff; I'll be heading back down there tomorrow. I will be gone probably for at least a week. I have two contests going - this one and another "Celebrate My Birthday with You're Doing It Wrong" - I'll have to put these on hold until I can get back home and into a normal routine. Please keep her in your prayers ... she needs it.
