A Deep Breath

It's 12:30 am in Los Angeles and I just got home a little while ago. This evening we rushed my father to the hospital for emergency surgery. He's doing ok now, and I'm very relieved.

I was feeling very blue, and then I found all your sweet comments on my Thursday giveaway post. It just lifted my spirits. Thank you. Thank you.

UPDATE. 9:23 am.
I getting ready to go to the hospital to see my father. He's doing much better!!! I just wanted to thank you for all the lovely notes! I'm so very touched.

I'll be back here this evening. I'm so looking forward to a restful weekend! (I will be posting lots of gorgeous Polaroids.)

I wanted to show you what all the running was about this week!

I had three columns:
Bono's potty mouth;
Bill Clinton raising money for his foundation;
and Obama is coming back to Hollywood for - what else? - money.

Also, on my super-sized photo blog Ms. Muse, I found a gorgeous photo of Kate Moss (accompanied with details of an interesting celeb sighting...)

AND..... thank you Kevin for the amazing mention on LA Observed today!!

See you back here later! Hope you have a wonderful Friday. xo

Tina-- as a dad of two, i know how much a father's spirits are lifted when their children are around them. It's obvious your love for him; he knows what a great daughter you are! Good health to your father and blessings on him for a FULL recovery.
