Life good and bad

I want to say it's just not my week. And I mean that in both senses of the word. I'm about the same. It's all other people. Special K is much better. My mom came for 24 hours from Wednesday to Thursday and gave us all a little TLC.

Sadly C appears to be getting worse. His breathing and cough worsen. He blacked out yesterday (his words) and a very kind friend took him to Urgent Care while I stayed home with the kids. Urgent Care (UC) said he was dehydrated and gave him IV fluids. Ironically my cat received the same treatment earlier in the week. UC also thought he had pneumonia. He still has a low-grade fever and night sweats. Unfortunately his chest x-ray on Tuesday didn't show pneumonia. Urgent Care took another x-ray. The preliminary results from that x-ray didn't show pneumonia either. Maddening. Regardless the antibiotics don't appear to be doing anything and on Saturday he'll have been sick for four weeks and getting worse. We go again to the doctor tomorrow.

And the brightest spot in my week is not my story to tell. But today I was reminded why I get on the computer.

Wow, that's... scary. I will continue to think well thoughts.

Give me a ring if I can help give a ride or bring dinner to you or something.

Thanks so much Greg! You could help us take one cat to the vet for her checkup. I'll give you a call.

I can do that, sure. I can break away from work in the afternoon, pretty much any day this week. Most of my meetings are in the morning, though I do have 12-1:30 on both Weds and Thurs. So, W and Th after 2:00 and other days after 1:00 would be optimal. I can break away at other times too, just let me know!

No though I understand your concerns about this area.
