Monday's Installment Moved

Is going to be moved. I'll have installments up Weds/Friday/Sunday instead. That will conclude the story, too. Then we'll consider what to go with next.

This weekend has been a wreck. Friday night, Amber's BP skyrocketed and she was seeing spots, her head was pounding. That was five hours between the driving and treatment. She's still pregnant, too. We all go back home right before 2 am, and my mother in law texted me that SHE was at the hospital then because she couldn't breathe. She'd been to her doctor the day before and been told she had bronchitis, was given amoxicillin and told to take Nyquil. No flu testing or anything, didn't check her heart.

She's been in the hospital ever since she texted me that, and it was bad for a while there. She has the flu, MRSA, HMPV-- a type of pneumonia-- and the doctors are trying to figure out if she has congestive heart failure or not. They ran lasix through her all day yesterday to drain off the fluid because she was suffocating, and the next step was intubation. That still haunts me from when Dad was intubated, and I'm glad for MIL's sake they didn't have to do it. They doctors were able to reduce the oxygen they were having her breathe in by half at about 4 am, so that's a sign she's doing better. So, it's been a trying and fearful weekend. Tiring for everyone, although MIL's spirits are cheerier.

Due to everything that's going on, the installment will be moved. I have to get Dark Nights and Headlights done still, and it's going to be a day late at least since we've been at the hospital.

I hope y'all are all having a good weekend. **huggz**
