I hope she gets better quickly, Prayers sent
Prepare for the worst, Hope for the best
Worry about the things you can control, Plan for the things you can't
Well, I had to pull the trigger early this morning and take her to the emergency room. She was getting worse and I decided I was fighting a loosing battle. She fought me tooth and nail but it had to be done. I was right too. She has more issues then the flu. Her liver is not functioning correctly and her kidneys are shutting down. Add a touch of pneumonia and she is a sick girl. Doc says it's probably from all the meds and treatments from breast cancer. My question is why the hell didn't her regular doctors catch this? They wouldn't let me go up to her room and I can't see her. That's really pissing me off. I couldn't get past the check in which was located just outside the main trauma check in and waiting area. Not a soul in the place.
Interesting, no cars in the lots or parking garages. I have been in some emergency rooms in my day, both as the takee and as the taken, and this was strange. They are usually controlled chaos with people going every different direction but his was very methodical very quite. Although, this wasn't Ben Taub Trauma center. They check you in one at a time and then you are gone. Strange.
For now, I sit and wait. That is till tomorrow morning, I invade the hospital tomorrow morning.

Just a quick update. I finally got hold of the nurse in her ICU and she had another bad night. But they are going to do a procedure to relieve the stress in her abdomen this afternoon. That should relieve the pain and then they can look closer at her liver issue. They think it's Cirrhosis brought on by her cancer meds. She is not a drinker so I guess that makes sense. I am frustrated beyond belief that she is in the hospital, alone and afraid, and I can't be there. They still wont allow me in.
The nurse also did say that although she tested negative for the China bug the tests have proven to be unreliable and that they will keep testing. She then suggested that until they are sure, I stay home. BULL SHIT!
