Thanks to everyone who sent well-wishes for my mom. She decided not to go to the hospital after all, but to wait for her appt with the cardiologist on Monday and see what they say. Her regular doctor wanted her to be admitted last week, but Mom has a thing about being in the hospital and asked what they would do for her there that she couldn't do at home. The answer was that they would give her treatments with a nebulizer (sp?). In the end, Mom got a nebulizer for use at home.

Convoluted? Yep. My family has character.

Anyway, I'm home again. I spent most of the day at Mom's and did a little work around her house. I'm tired and have a headache, but I also have scenes needing my attention, so I'll putz around a bit online, I think.

I'm not sure how much I'll be around this weekend. I'm taking my mom over to the hospital shortly because she's still having a lot of breathing trouble. If they admit her, I'll be staying at her house with my brother Kenny while she's in the hospital. There's a computer there, but I don't know how much time I'd have to be on it. And it's slow.

It's 3 a.m. and I just got home. We left for Mer's game at 7:40 or so because we needed to stop and pick her up some Propel (she just won't drink plain water, I've tried). The game was at 9:00. Our team got butchered. Seriously, it was horrible. Mercy rules came into play. Just bad, all around. One of our players threw up. Mer got a serious case of vertigo and passed out briefly (not actually on the field). I had to help her to the car because she was so dizzy and her vision was blurry. We went to the ER where she had:

- 2 chest x-rays
- CAT scan of her chest with IV contrast
- Blood work
- Urine test
- 2 bags of IV fluids
- Blood pressure taken laying down, after sitting upright for 5 minutes, and after standing for 5 minutes

They thought about keeping her overnight, but decided she could go home. She can't participate in the bowling tournament in Richmond tomorrow, though, because they don't want her doing anything physical until we see a cardiologist on Monday. (This means her teammates, who she doesn't have contact information for, won't get to play because they won't have a full team.)

As dramatic as all this sounds, more than likely she just overexerted herself and was dehydrated and hadn't eaten enough. She was pretty out of it, though, so we needed to get her checked out.

Just as an aside, my daughter knows people everywhere we go. Her dad is the same way. They just know people. Everywhere. Mer even ran into someone she knew at an amusement park in Florida. Tonight was no exception. The boy 3 rooms down from Mer in the ER was a kid she went to middle school with and had kept in touch with. Mer's dad (he came out to the hospital) knew the kid's mom. So, Rob meandered between the two rooms chatting, and Mer had to stop and see Gregory (the seriously cute boy - all 6'5" of him) before we left.

Anyhoo, I'm tired. It's now nearly 3:30. I think I'll go to bed.
