Take A Word Challenge - Clocks


Da Vinci was always way ahead of his time!

Things are very upsetting in our life right now. We found out this weekend that our 3 year old grandson has Kawasaki Disease. It can be fatal if not treated immediately. He was in a hospital in Ohio over the weekend, but is being transferred to Mott's Children Hospital which is part of the U of M Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. That's why he was sick with 3 different viruses the past 3 months and passed them all unto me.  He should get good care at Mott's.

Our 26 year old son-in-law, married to our youngest daughter and doesn't have children, has been very sick the past year with what they have discovered is a mass on his bladder. The doctor he was seeing said he wasn't qualified to remove it in an operation, because any mistake could mean having to use a catheter the rest of his life. The doctor sent him to a specialist at U of M hospital, and they scheduled the surgery for this coming Weds. It's going to be a long and nerve racking week!

    As the Superbowl happens overnight here in Australia I have only just heard the final score and hope that you weren't following the Broncos! What a walkover.
