Update on Mom

Hey all, for those of you who don't know, Mom had to go to the hospital. She was taken by ambulance on Wednesday morning after she collapsed. It's been a crazy couple of days, but she has been fighting and is making a recovery.

She had an infection and the Dr put her on antibiotics she was allergic to... TWICE. This caused her infection to go into overdrive and her diabetic meds and sugar levels to go nuts. They think at this point the infection is under control and are now just trying to regulate her blood sugar level, which continues to skyrocket and bottom out.

A big THANK YOU goes out to the EMTs and First Response crew in our hometown, as well as the families and neighbors who have been visiting, calling, sending cards, and showing support. Thank you to many of the nurses and nurse aids who continue to care for her long after they kick us out at night and before we arrive in the morning. It is difficult to entrust the care of such a special woman with a group of people we don't know. You have all been instrumental in her recovery. Thank you.
