...the 'Hair Poll' results...
Well, I have a few things going on which may limit my posting the next week or so... First, as some may know, I had a root canal done about two weeks ago now... seemed to be ok, but a little over a week ago, that side of my face went numb - went back and they took out another piece of 'root', thought that would get it back to normal, but 5 days later, still numb... so I'm going to have to sort it out with the dentist, and hopefully not have to go to another 'specialist'...
But, the 'big' deal has transpired just today, as I had to take my dad to the ER - he was generally congested, but after doing a CATscan, it looks like he may have some cancer in his lymph nodes... he is 81, and still lives alone... so looks like some form of assisted living or even hospice is in his immediate future... so as his 'overseer', my wife and I will have to take care of the arrangements for him and everything...
Well, sorry this post is not more 'Gingery', but just letting y'all know what is happening... hopefully these issues will be resolved soon, and I can get back to posting some stuff... have some things in mind, so please stay tuned!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
