She was just about ready for some minor-but-life-improving surgery when-- She stopped getting better and got worse. Off to the hospital Sunday afternoon, where they rapidly stabilized her, got blood pressure back within normal range, and are now watching to see how she does for the next few days. She's in good spirits -- frustrated, as you might expect -- and your kind thoughts and/or prayers would be appreciated.
My own timing was none too good: I worked a five a.m. - one p.m. shift Sunday and was ginning up for a 3:00 a.m. start Monday when the text came in. Baby Bro was with her and the medicos were saying no imminent danger, so I made do with a phone call. By the quitting time after a busy Monday, I was so punchy I worried all the way home and probably would've failed a field sobriety test and had to beg for a breathalyzer.
