Monday night my mom was admitted to the hospital for severe leg pain, chest congestion and fever. Since the moment she arrived at the emergency room friends and family have been with her except when she has requested to be alone in order to sleep.
Yesterday she was feeling a bit better, and today better still. Her temperature returned to normal a few hours after getting to the hospital and the chest x-ray was beautifully uninteresting. This morning her leg was in far less pain, though it still hurts. We’re waiting to hear the results of an MRI from yesterday to know more about what may be going on there.
Matthew and I have been at the hospital since around 8:30am. Fortunately both my mom and Matthew enjoy PBS Kids, at least most of the shows, and they seem to dislike the same ones. Other friends and family have been in and out and there has been much laughter, a good portion of it provided courtesy of my mom’s wit.
Presently we’re watching a gardening show, mom sleeps, and Matthew and I are diddling around on computers. I plan to update as we know more.
