We don't really celebrate Easter here because the Christian religion is strictly forbidden as is ALL Christian holidays. We don't have kids here so no reason to color eggs or get all that nasty Easter candy or fuss over a meal.
So I called my parents to wish the a Happy Easter but couldn't talk long because my mother was waiting for the ambulance to come pick up my father and take him to the hospital. He couldn't breathe, he was having chest pains and just didn't feel good. He is 91, on oxygen 24/7, has angina and congestive heart failure. The last update was that he is doing ok, his color is back and he is his "cranky self" which is a good sign. I am 6,000+ miles and 7 hour time difference from my family.
29 more days and I will be home!
