I have bad news

I haven't been blogging that much in the last two weeks because I got sick. At first I thought it was the flu. I had flu-like symptoms but then last Friday I felt a sharp pain on my left shoulder. I went to the emergency room yesterday and I was admitted to the hospital.

The bad news is that I'm going to stay in the hospital for a while. It doesn't look good. I got a infection but doctors are still trying to figure out exactly what it is. It looks like it might be a infection in one of my lungs. I'm just hoping they don't operate me there. I've been through this before and it's a very difficult process. I don't think I'll be able to handle another one. In the meantime, doctors have me on a bunch of different antibiotics.

I just wanted everyone to know my situation and know why I'm not blogging anymore.

I miss posting here and following the Dodgers. The worst part is being away from my son.

Hopefully I can beat this and go back home soon....

Thanks everyone for reading and I'm sorry if I haven't replied to your emails. I'm just not in the mood to read.

Please keep me in your prayers.

I'll be back. (I hope)
