Hellions, We Could Use Some Good Thoughts and Prayers Right Now

A couple of days ago, my Lovely Bride mentioned that she'd been getting winded coming up the stairs to our office. My antenna went up, because this is not something she'd experienced to this degree before. I insisted she go to the doctor.

She went in yesterday morning and hasn't been home since.

One test led to another and they discovered that Lynn has a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot in her lung. Luckily, they discovered it before the little bastard could do serious damage, and she's resting sort-of comfortably in the hospital, on 24 hour monitoring and blood thinners. Testing hasn't turned up any other little bastards. That's all we know right now.

Needless to say, this has pretty well knocked our regular life upside the head. What with family and all,we're pretty well fixed for day to day help. but all good thoughts and/or prayers would be appreciated.

And of course, blogging will be light to nonexistent for a while.
