It's been a while so I thought I'd drop a note so you all know I'm still alive. My dad's health has taken a very bad nosedive and as I write this, he's been in the ICU at the hospital for a week now. He is currently on a respirator and we are unsure if he will be able to sustain his own breathing without it. He's reached a crossroad wherein both mind and body are tired and this last setback in his health may have been the final breaking point for hope of recovery. It's been a very difficult time for my family and I wish I had better news to impart to you all. While I haven't been writing much new material, I have been editing and revising posted material. When you'll see the edited material or new chapters is still up in the air. Your kind words and support have helped tremendously though, and I wanted to let you all know that I appreciate it.
