A really bad night...

I was sitting here last night working on "DUMPTRUCK--GAME ON!!", which many of you signed up for, when the phone rang.

It was my father. He calls once in a while just to check in, but I could tell by his voice, not this time.

"Your brother is in the hospital"

I've gotten calls like that before. At least once every few years one of us five siblings is in the hospital for stitches, or a broken bone, or have a baby or deal with some other positive event or minor injury.

To make a long story short, because I'm very tired and can't think, my little brother is in a profession where he is required to be out in the elements when it is least desirable...people count on him.

The roads here have been very unpredictable, blowing snow, poor visibility and icy conditions. He was out on a call and lost controll of his vehicle. The doctors say he has undetermined head injuries and he has not been conscious since he got admitted.


He has three kids...14, 11 and 8, and he's my best friend.

I'll be checking in to get my mind off things and to keep you all posted...but it won't be blogging as usual for a while.
