why you have not heard from me

     I have four weblogs at homeschoolblogger.com.

     One is a book review blog, http://homeschoolblogger.com/homeschoolbookreview/ .  I try to add new book reviews to it every day.

     Another is a blog for religious articles that I have written, http://homeschoolblogger.com/defenderoftruth/ .  I add to it whenever I have an article that I have written.

     Still another is a hymn studies blog, http://homeschoolblogger.com/hymnstudies/ .   I am now adding a new hymn study to it about once a week.

     And there is this blog, which is primarily for homeschool-related items.

     However, I have not been able to add to any of these blogs for the past week.  We are in South Carolina, where my 82-year-old father became ill and was taken to the hospital on Thursday of last week.  By Saturday night he was not expected to live, so we came from Illinois on Sunday.  Monday he rallied a bit but by Wednesday, the doctors said that there was nothing more that they could do.  He was transferred to Hospice on Thursday, and we are here with him, trying to help him be as comfortable as possible during this time.  Right now, we do not know exactly what the future holds for him or us, but we shall continue to see to his needs as best we can.
