Thanks to all of you who sent good wishes to my dad for his surgery. It went very well. There was a minor complication, and he is going through another procedure today (Monday), but it should not be a big deal. So I am back, and glad to be with you all.
Something that you might find interesting is a story about a young boy that I learned about at the hospital where my dad had his surgery. This is not your usual hospital. In the lobby is a grand piano, and there is almost always someone there, playing it. There is a 10-year old boy who plays for an hour every Friday afternoon. His name is Noah Waddell, and he is quite an amazing musician. You can check out his website, and listen to him play. He has entered many competitions, and has an opportunity to go to the Cleveland Institute of Music this summer to study.
