It was cancelled this year. Without going into too much detail, I have an ex-brother-in-law out there; he has some health challenges and was in a pretty bad way last week. By Friday, he was in the hospital, undergoing various tests while the doctors figured out what to do next. Saturday was going to be the big holiday gathering here in Indianapolis, mostly his kids and their children; instead, they assembled sixty miles away at a county-seat general hospital with their father and did what they could -- mostly support him and one another emotionally
Last word I had was that he was doing better and getting some short-term treatment with an eye towards longer-term fixes. He was always a difficult man and he's having a difficult time of it these days; I can only hope things work out all right for him.
Family Christmas can wait.
