Okay, this sucks.
I'm sorry, but I think I have to bail. I've a cat who hasn't been eating well for a week, and, well, we need to take him in to get X-rays. Today, like in a few minutes. And while my wife is more than capable of handling this, I *cannot* leave her to handle the potentially very bad news alone. If I did, I'd run a really crappy game.
If we quickly find out this is something really benign, I'll be along and may have to start a little late. But otherwise, well, I have bigger fish to fry today.
Again, folks, I am horribly sorry. People were counting on me, and I'm likely letting them down.
As someone who is in your game, and someone who lost a pet at the end of last year, take care of your family. Hopefully all ends up well, and we'll see you for some great gaming
