Well, my sister-in-law just finished her brain surgery. Looks like a type 2 or type 3 tumor. (Walnut sized.) They are sending it to the Mayo Clinic for testing. That may take a week or so for results to come back if it is benign or malignant. She is still not awake as far as I know. My wife travelled back to IL yesterday in time for the surgery, and she will stay till Saturday night, but her sister will still be in the Hospital probably till Monday or Tuesday. Thoughts and prayers appreciated, but not medically necessary.

Update. The kid has applied to three colleges in Colorado, has been accepted to one of them (which is a fallback school academically, but I think he would enjoy going there and learn lots of stuff.) One of the three, we are waiting on two recommendation letters from teachers, so he has not 100% finished with the application, but he has done his part.
Saw that the Kronk had a locked down article (that I didn't/couldn't read) about how libraries are not saving money by going to more electronic resources. Are faculty still surprised by this? http://www.chronicle.com/article/As-Libraries-Go-Digital-Cost...
