Excitement? Yes!

We decided to crash about 10:30 last night but at 1:30 Paul heard Sue having problems.  Sue had a temperature most of the day and no appetite at all.  Paul got up and tried to assist her in returning to bed but could not do it.  She was so weak she could not walk.

She collapsed to the floor and Paul called 911.  The guys were out in about five minutes and took her to the Los Al Hospital Emergency Room for a checkout.  Her temperature was almost 103 and she was listless with zero body strength.  Paul followed in the van bringing the purse and cane.

Our night time nurse was terrific evening bringing warm blankets for Paul who was freezing.

After receiving the drugs plus a dose of Excedrin, Sue was able to go to sleep.

She has a bladder infection which was running rampant

IV with appropriate drugs and she was out

The IV with appropriate drugs and she was out like a light!

Went she woke up the doctor filled he in on the problem, ordered medications from the local CVS, and she had regained her strength including the ability to walk from the car to the house.

We got home about 8:00 am after a harrowing evening in the ER.

Paul had breakfast and watched Sue like a hawk!  Paul took pictures of the May garden and then walked about 44 minutes just around the local block!

We watch “The West Wing” before crashing about 11:30.  We both slept until about 2:00 am and then again until 7:30 am!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
