Update for Everyone

Hi friends!

I wanted to fill everyone in on why I have not been blogging, posting, tweeting, facebooking, etc. this week. Last Saturday morning my Dad became very ill, severe stomach pains and lots of bleeding. He was rushed to the hospital and to be frank, we almost lost him Saturday night. He is under the best possible care he can get, we have a wonderful GI Team at Strong Memorial Hospital here and they are trying to get to the root of all his GI issues. For now, the bleeding is under control, and he is being monitored very closely. I am hoping by the weekend I can resume my blog posting, review writing and tweeting, etc. I have missed you all very much and all your messages and notes to me have meant so much.

I have a ton of writing to catch up on and for those entering my giveaways, I won't forget about you. I am right on top of when they are all ending......so winners will be selected!

I will be online regularly real soon!! But if you need to contact me, we do have WiFi at the hospital and I am trying to check emails to respond to anyone that needs to connect with me.

HUGS to you all!

Joanna

Just said a prayer for your dad--and you! It's scary when loved ones are facing health crises, especially our Dads who are usually the strong ones in the family.

I think the cause of bleeding was gastric ulcer? He will be forced to constantly take pills that reduce the secretion of hydrochloric acid. There is a need for the introduction of iron preparations after hemorrhage.

Good luck!
