We had an unexpected death in the family late Friday night, too. He wasn't ill, and the doctors had said he'd be okay after he had a mild heart attack. Just needed stents.
Sammie called me Saturday night, sick and her teeth chattering, she was trying to drive herself to the clinic half an hour away. I had her pull over, then the Hubs drove me to where Sammie was, and I drove her in the the clinic. Two bags of fluids, potassium pills, and a lot of ibuprofen later, she was discharged around 5 am. She has hand foot and mouth, too. The drs said adults don't blister like the kids do. Looks like that's the case because Sammie is blistering worse.
That took us into Sunday, when the wife of the relative who passed away Friday night from a heart attack, also had a heart attack. She survived, but their immediate family, and ours as a whole, has been through a very rough weekend.
I didn't get much writing done at all, and probably won't for a few more days. I'd planned to be on the blog every day this week, but we'll see how it goes with all the family crises going on.
This seems like a really depressing post. Please don't take it that way. I am just astounded at how much bad stuff keeps happening, you know? Boggles the mind.
Y'all are all welcome to share your weekend stories, too. Or share anything, whenever y'all need to reach out.
|Ick. No handshakes for you, Sam. Just wave 'Hi'.|
