More crappy family health news

My sister Pat has something wrong with her eyes. Mom couldn't remember the name of it, but it has something to do with corneal blisters (?), is supposed to become quite painful and the doctor said there's no cure (possibly he said there's no cure short of corneal transplant). Mom told me this when I called her on Monday.

Tonight Mom's in ICU. She'd been shivering much of the day and her body temperature had dropped. Pat finally talked her into going to the ER (the family practitioner had been booked up) and as they got near the ER Mom started having chest pains.

Nitroglycerin made the chest pain go away, but her sodium levels turned out to be very low. So she's in ICU now while they figure out what's going on with her.

We could all use some GoodThoughts right at the moment...
