for Pat Adair, and the people who love her...

Our beloved Pat got some shocking news recently, and we're off and running on a mysterious medical adventure. Not an adventure we would have picked, but we're off just the same... (If you're new to the blog, start here.)

What's another word for unbelievable?

Mom just left the house in an ambulance. She was pretty incoherent but she knew where she was headed and was unhappy about it. She's been tired since chemo Friday, but a home nurse came by today and checked her vitals, pronounced her fit and said, like everyone does, "you look good!" An hour and a half later Mom thought it was 1908 and couldn't move under her own power. I talked to her oncologist and he suggested letting her rest for a couple of hours and watching her carefully. About two hours later she felt hot and had a temperature of 101.6, so I called 911 right away. Infections for chemo patients are really serious. I'm on my way to the hospital just now...

This is hard.

oh Aunt Pat!! I haven't been getting the emails to tell me something has posted on your blog so I just assumed thing were going fantastically!! It really is a terrible feeling being so far away - I feel so disconnected. But I love you and pray for you. Thanks Dave for keeping us abreast of the situation....even though I've been kicked off the blog emails....
