I got some money for my birthday. So I had the belt replaced in my car (it had needed it for a while and finally, the car wouldn't start - so I hadn't driven my car in 2 months). Which was cool. I have my car back. I'm happy.
Tuesday my Mom gets sick. Throwing up, abdominal cramps. Something she's had damn near every month for about 2 years. It usually goes away in a few days. The doctors never could figure out what was wrong. The GI (gastroenterologist) sends her to the surgeon (who did some hernia surgery 2 years ago on her), surgeon sends her to OB/Gyn. OB/Gyn thinks it's hormonal & will stop after menopause. Last night , she still wasn't able to keep anything down (not even water). My Mom had Crohn's disease and had her colon removed 20 years ago (she has an iliostomy). With all of this, dehydration is a serious thing. She went to ER last night. They took x-rays and sent her home. Today she called her doctor's office (to find out about x-rays) - they had to have someone call her back. Several hours later, they call back & tell her they want to admit her to the hospital. There's an obstruction in her small intestine. She still can't keep anything down. I took her to the hospital (around 2:30 this afternoon). She gets an IV - so at least she's finally getting some fluids in her body. She won't be allowed to eat or drink until that blockage moves.
My Dad picked the Queen Princess up from the bus stop (after school). They hung out (did yard work, went to eat) and then came to the hospital.
We leave the hospital around 9PM. I turn on my car and the "Service Engine Soon" light comes on. So, now I won't be able to drive my car until I get that checked - and who the hell knows when I'm gonna be able to do that?!?
The Queen Princess cries because her Grandma is in the hospital. And to top it off, it looks like she'll be in the hospital Sunday (which is the QP's birthday).
It should be a fun weekend. Makes me want to ask "what else could happen???" - but I'm too afraid that something else will go wrong!
Anyway. Thanks for "listening" to me whine. :-)
