A request for urgent prayers for my Dad who is currently in emergency surgery... for my girlfriend who came down with a sudden illness... and for my friend Angelo's mom who's suffering through a progressive illness.
Several other extended family members are also in need of prayers for various illnesses, past surgeries, and unemployment.
When it rains it pours.
It's times like this when you rely on God to get you thru the tough times.
UPDATE: My girlfriend is doing better, but it's slow going. Regarding my Dad, he came out of surgery ok. What was thought (at worst) to be a growth in the colon near the appendix, was instead found out to be "just" an inflamed appendix. He's in recovery, but given his age (84) and his medical/surgical history is not "out of the woods." The next 5 days or so will be the determining factor.
Thank you all for the continued prayers!
3/30 UPDATE: My girlfriend is now doing much better. And so is my Dad, who has begun to improve in his recovery from surgery last week after a setback. Thanks again for the prayers!

(Hat-tip to Ace of Spades & Gateway Pundit)
Stupak took his 30 pieces of silver.
Turns out he never intended to vote "no".
I consider this to be an accurate description of the man.
John Beohner gives 'em hell.
Eric at The Daily Eudemon has a good commentary.
Meanwhile the Supreme Court rejected a hearing on this case.
This whole weekend of politics has made me ill.
Six of eight Big East teams go down in the first weekend, including my beloved Villanova Wildcats. I'm shocked but not surprised at the 'Cats given their major stumbling at the end of the season. Kansas goes down. Cornell is in the Sweet 16 along with U No Iowa and St. Mary's, Baylor and Butler. They don't call it "madness" for nothin'.
