Update

Sorry to leave everyone on that note. The post I mentioned was my rumination on the news that I had gotten earlier in the evening that my father wasn't expected to survive his current hospitalization. At that time, the news was that he maybe had a month at the outset. So I was still kind of philosophical and not really quite grasping the reality.

Then I got word an hour after that he died suddenly, and the reality came rather quickly.

My brothers and I are all here with my Mom, and things are going well. My Mom's a strong lady, and we're all working together and taking our individual roles. Between us, and with the extended family's support, it looks like this will go alright. I know I feel a lot better than I did during the 7 hour middle-of-the-night drive back here to Massachussetts.

I will probably post more later, more to log it for my own purposes than for any weird need to expose my personal life to the rest of the internet. But I expect I'll be back to the usual reviews-n-ruminations format sooner rather than later.

Sorry for your loss, man. My condolences go out to you and all your family. Had to make it even tougher by not allowing much emotional preparation by happening so suddenly...

I've been following your blog for a while now because I enjoy your anime reviews, but haven't commented or anything until now. I'd just like to express my condolences. I'm sorry for your loss, but I'm glad you and your family have a strong support network that will help you through this.
