My mom's in the hospital. Been there since about 5 pm yesterday. Been at the dr's with her since 10 am. She's really sick, doc doesn't know with what. When we were at the dr's office yesterday, she started becoming unstable. They had to give her some shots to stop the nausea, and the dr recommended she go to the hospital right from his office. She started out with a weird, burning pain in her leg, between her knee and hip, and then it just got worse from there. It's all over her body, and she's got a really really bad headache. She put her pain on 10 from that 1 to 10 pain scale. Dr is worried that there's a really bad infection somewhere in her body, and has ordered a battery of tests. The good news is that they started with a massive attack of antibiotics last night, and she's feeling A LOT better today. She sounds almost normal again. She has a headache still, but not like yesterday. Her body also hurts, but not like yesterday. I'm going to call her doctor now to see if he can tell me what the results of her preliminary tests are, and find out why he's ordering xrays from other parts of her body. It's been a really fucking long day yesterday, and today doesn't look like it's going to be any better. Today is also the first day of class for an important class I'm registered for this term, and it doesn't look like I'll be able to go - gotta take care of my 6 year old sister while mom's in the hospital. I haven't showered, I have no change of clothes, and my sister is being bratty today (to be expected, she's really worried about mom). I'm having super back pains and now I have a new pain in my neck and shoulders that started yesterday morning, while at the dr's office. After all this, I think I'll be checking myself in to a hospital as well. I could use the break and pampering So pray for my mom guys. She needs it. thanks.
