I am MIA!

My poor brother fell yesterday while delivering mail and broke his leg in 2 places! He called me from the Emergency room to my work place to let me know about it. I came into the city after work Friday to be with my Dad.
Brian finally had his surgery today at 4:30 today after being bumped once! We just got back from the hospital tonight and he is doing really well and can come home tomorrow morning. Now we just have to keep him from climbing the stairs to get to his computer!!!!!!!!!!! Any hoo that's been my day!
