Well, kids, no new news. As far as I know, my grandpa is still in the hospital. Nothing on what might be wrong, other than a bad ear infection.

As for my mother-in-law, she probably should have gone back to the ER tonight. She’s got bruises where she didn’t before, with no explanation for them, and she’s got unexplainable aches and pains. But being the stubborn woman she is, she decided not to go. Well, I hope she gets better without needing another hospital trip.

Namine is in bed, and she’s tired enough to go to sleep, but she keeps coughing. This is pretty much par for the course, since she is still recovering from being sick, but that doesn’t make it easier. The night before last, she was up until nearly 3am coughing. Last night, around 2:30 she finally fell into a deep enough sleep, probably due to sheer exhaustion. This post has taken eight times longer than usual because I have to get up to suction her so much. And when she’s trying to rub her face and yawning during the suctioning, you know she’s tired.

  • That simplifies things a bit. No more facebook app, just posting straight from the website to my wall.

  • I’m glad to hear things are slowly starting to get better for you & Jessica & Namine. I’ll keep your MIL & Grandpa in my prayers.

    They’ve pretty much decided that your Grandpa did not have a stroke. What caused the stroke like symptoms last night?? No idea. His ear drum did not rupture but it is still draining. They’ve had him on “stroke protocol” all day even tho they say it wasn’t one. His heart is still fluttering a bit and they are doing some more heart type tests Sat. morning. Also an ENT is supposed to come tomorrow. Hospitals are slow as molassis. I think they like to take their time so they can charge you more. I called the nurses desk and gave them “what for” tonight because as of 6pm NO doctor had seen him yet (only a nurse practitioner). OY VEY

    BTW cute picture of Charlene and Namine!!!!!

  • I’m so sorry to hear that Namine is still struggling with a cough. I thought she was better, but it sounds like whatever this is, it’s hanging on. I hope you can all get some rest this weekend.

  • I think she may finally be really asleep. she continues coughing even through REM sometimes, though.
