Back in Wisconsin...

My dad was doing so poorly over the weekend that I made a last-minute decision to fly back to be with him and my mom. I tell ya, I think this guy is a close relative of the Energizer Bunny!! He went from a fever of 105° F. on Saturday to sitting up and scrolling through art images on my computer today. Not bad for an 88-year-old. I'll be back to blogging as soon as possible.

  8. Hi Chris, my best to your father. Glad he's feeling better. I hope your open gallery is still on. I was thinking of swinging by Saturday, maybe with my mom if she's behaving. Hopefully will see you soon!

  9. It was your visit that did it...
    Either he was so pleased to see you that it made him feel better...
    orrrrrr
    you scared the bajezus out of him because he thought you were so worried about him so he got better...
    Either way... good news... Glad he's better.
    You did the right thing!!!
