On Thanksgiving morning, a great fan of country music suffered a brain aneurysm. She has been hospitalized since, and has undergone two brain procedures (coiling the ruptured aneurysm as well as one that did not rupture, and removal of a blood clot). The neurosurgeon is "cautiously optimistic" that she stands a "decent chance for a reasonable recovery."
This country music fan happens to be my mother, Mabel Raizor. Please remember her in your prayers. And, please understand if I don't get the December dates of note up in time.
