Medical Update - My father

those of you who have been in the program a couple of years have had some limited opportunity to meet my father (he came to Pen, Dream, and Seussical). His condition (Parkinson's) is reasonably well-known (Michael J Fox, the Pope, etc...). He's had symptoms of it since 1985ish and clearly symptomatic since 1995, and then significantly deteriorating since 2004.

He fell twice again in the past two days and this time the injuries are not to his limbs, but to his head, and we may not have much longer with him. Anyway, I might not be as available as I thought, but they do have wireless here at the Hospital, so I can be reached via the blog or email.
