Mom Still Sick

My sister woke me up this morning ("Oh yeah, you're still in California aren't you? Sorry...") to tell me that my mom has been getting worse and not eating all weekend. Apparently my sister took my mother to the emergency room; what the result was either wasn't clear, or I was too fuzzle-headed to follow the details on, but apparently they're not sure if it's the painkillers for the shingles they diagnosed last Wednesday or something else making her unable to eat.

Dude, wtf.

I was planning to call them today anyway, but I don't know how coherent an answer I'll get out of my dad, and my mom is apparently not speaking much. (And yes, those of you who know her know what a big deal it is when my mom isn't speaking.)

Anyway, I'll be back in Virginia tomorrow, and I expect to be doing a lot of unexpected not being at work this coming week. Maybe I should rent something a little easier for my mom and dad to get in and out of than the Camry in case we have to do more toting around.

Merf. Family faw down go boom. -.-

Condolences
You have my condolences. Both my parents are octagenarians, and it's a constant adventure.

My dad got the shingles about two years ago. One of the things he said in regards to it was "Too bad there's no way to know in advance that you're going to get shingles. If there was, you could shoot yourself and save a lot of irritation."

I informed him I felt it wasn't a tenable solution. He riposted that it was easy for me to say, as I'd never had shingles.

Good luck.

I hope it turns out to be something easily handled, and that all parties concerned come out the other side quickly and painlessly.

In other words, the good thoughts follow you.

Something to do with probabilities, I'm sure. Hope she is okay!
