Weekly update (what a unique title)

This updating once a week on Sundays is for the birds, but it’s all I could manage. The first half of the week was pretty dull and I didn’t have the fire in the belly needed to create a post. And then my mom got sick again. Yeah, I know a week ago I said she was doing pretty well. That was then.

She has developed a bunch of issues which landed her in the hospital yesterday. The biggest thing seems to be a collapsed lung, which happens to be the lung that has the tumor where her cancer started. The just-about-as-big thing is her blood pressure being too low and her heart rate being too high. The doctors are trying to address the cardiopulmonary issues first, but the pulmonary and oncology specialists will be in on Monday. For now she’s more or less comfortable, as much as possible. She’s still lucid, communicative, pretty much herself mentally.

I have to admit, I’m a bit concerned. I don’t really know how concerned I should be, but this seems like something to be a bit concerned about.


About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
