It is safe to say that I will not be teaching any of my classes this week. Thanks to all of you who are keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. I am in ICU right now and will remain here until Saturday. Dr. Chen and his staff are monitoring me in preparation for surgery on Wednesday. Chen, a very confident neurological surgeon, spoke to me this morning about the process and what he needs to do. This all started on Thursday as I was struggling with headaches and vomiting, but I did not realize the serious nature of the matter.
Christine Metoyer who chairs the department will be playing with my teaching schedule this week; I believe she is going to take over my advanced courses. Thanks Matt Lee for the comment about my hospitalization on the previous post.
