At roughly 1 PM, I’m leaving to see my maternal grandfather in the hospital. He’s suffering from a blocked valve in his heart; basically, the heart’s pumping, but the blood’s not circulating as it should. He’s doing okay for the moment (he’s awake and lucid), but surgery has been ruled out due to his age (nearly 80, I believe, and there would be a 99.9% likelihood that he stays on the operating table) and the doctors are seeking alternate treatment methods for now. Even still, chances are unavoidably high that he won’t get out of the hospital this time … so this may be the last time I see him. We’ll see. Meanwhile, here’s your Daily Blend, you fartknockers.
