I found out last night that my dad is in the hospital, following a bit of surgery. He'll be there until at least Saturday, and off work for four to six weeks. Dad went in for a routine checkup on Monday, and they found some polyps that were serious enough to warrant calling in the cavalry, and now he's going to miss the only home-playoff game of the Packer's post-season. Mom said the doctors sound optimistic that everything went better than they expected, so now the trick is getting dad to sit still long enough to heal.
And that's...that's pretty much it for today.
