In Raleigh, NC; blogging will be light today. Mom is having back surgery this morning - a laminectomy on her fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae, to correct a pinched nerve that seems to be causing all manner of discomfort and difficulty.
The procedure is scheduled for this morning, but it will be well on up in the day before she's back in her room, and well into the evening, in all likelihood, before I'm back at the keyboard of the Mighty Wurlitzer here.
Those of you who are devout agnostics and atheists, please keep us in your thoughts. If you're otherwised inclined, your prayers would be appreciated.
That is all.
