The Wedding was wonderful but it's now back to real life.
My mother in law sounds like she has pneumonia and I took her to
the doctor yesterday. He x-rayed her lungs and put her on a strong
antibiotic but she is coughing non-stop. At nearly 86 it doesn't take
much to make her really sick.
My dad is down to 103 pounds. I went with mother to the doctor with
him this week too (okay, so I live in doctor's offices really. I get
a lot of crossword puzzles done that way.). His Internist has taken a
"personal leave of absence". Great. So he'll be seeing "new" doctors until
he decides to come back which means they'll be guessing as to what to do.
And this isn't good. He put him on something to "pick his appetite up".
But 2 times nothing is still nothing.
Mother has now called a surgeon to discuss putting a feeding tube back in.
Frankly that is probably the best thing for him. He refuses to try to eat
so what are the options.
I babysat the Twins on Wednesday and both of them are sick (yet to hear from
what but they were running fevers). I have no immune system. Que sera.
Oh well. I pray they don't get the asthma stuff again poor babies. Jacob was
so sad - he just wanted to be held. (Jeremiah didn't act sick so it wasn't until
later that they discovered he, too, was running a fever.). I gave them both
a cookie during the day. Jeremiah ate his. Jacob just held his - all day long.
It's been a long week. But it was a beautiful wedding!
