It's Mike Tomczak Day (also with update on my dad)

15 days until college football!

Mike Tomczak was so fast....("how fast was he?")......he was so fast that by the time we snapped this picture of him, he was GONE, leaving only his uniform behind (which was not nearly fast enough to keep up with him).

OK, an update on my dad. First, thanks for all your comments and e-mails. I appreciate it.

Dad's better. The cause of the effects he was feeling have been whittled down, and it looks as if he wasn't being given enough steroids to counter the swelling and leftover tumor fragments. As a result, he was confused and agitated. They're still doing tests, hoping to rule out any hematoma potential, and surgery might still be necessary. But for now, he recognizes everybody, knows the date and all the vitals, and seems happier.

We're not out of the woods yet, but at least we're no longer headed in the direction of Rustin Parr's house*.

I'll keep you updated. Til then, at least we can breathe a small sigh of relief.


* - Bonus points if you get that reference.
