As Charlie Brown Would Say, "Auuuuuugh!"


I know it seems like every other day, I post something to this effect (so much that I'll probably end up the curmudgeon of the blogosphere), and I've Twittered on this, but here's a heads-up.

My mom went into the hospital on Sunday night, coughing up blood. Her condition is...well, it's not going to get better. She's not dying, but it means that she's going to have to get some rest and take care of herself.

If you're of a particular faith tradition, please feel free to pray/worship in an appropriate way for me and my family.

If you are an atheist, good thoughts and well wishes are also appreciated.

If you believe in the Greco-Roman pantheon of deities, get real. I mean, come on, who are you going to pray to - "Hey, Ares, come on down and kick this sickness' butt"? "Oh, mighty Athena, tell Gordon's mothers doctors how to cure her"?

I kid, but seriously - I could use some support right now. (And I'll have the podcast up in a few days, and keep regularly blogging. Heaven knows, I could use the distraction)

Is praying to the Greek or the Roman deities any sillier than praying to the Christian deity?...After all, their pantheon was around long before the more accepted christian one....whose to say who is right and who is wrong?

Anyway, well wishes to you and yours,Blessed Be,

All possible good thoughts and well wishes to you, friend.

Um, and your mom too! Impress upon her that we all want her to take good care of herself.

What GW said. I'd say it, but I'd feel "too gay" then.

Keep yer chin up. That's what everyone keeps telling me.
