Well, the taco party was on. About a half hour after guests arrived, my mom called my cell- I put one of my longtime friends on it to say hi- and she started yelling about an emergency, put me on...
Apparently, my dad had an accident on his segway today and was taken to the emergency room. She insisted I stay put until she knew what was going on... about a half hour later, she rang saying he was taken to surgery.
I closed up the taco shop and hauled rear to the ER, where I'm now sucking up their bandwidth.
Serious internal bleeding - Triple "A", abdominal aortic aneurysm. I'm still googling what that means. Sounds like it was a condition worsening over time, he is probably lucky this accident is what caught (caused it to worsen?).
At any rate, would appreciate a little happy foo.
