Mother was admitted to the hospital this morning with a fever of 103 and a blood oxygen level of 91. WP called me a little after 8 a.m. saying that although she ate a good supper last night, she was vomiting and had diarrhea this morning and was too weak to walk. I met the ambulance at St. Mary’s.
The doctor and emergency room staff are being very gentle and very thorough. She’s had a chest x-ray, several kinds of blood work, they have given her inhaled bronchial dilation and IV antibiotics. At the moment she is dozing comfortably.
Her WP roommate has been sick with similar symptoms for several days and was admitted to the same hospital yesterday. I’ll stop by to see her when I go back this afternoon.
Updates to follow.
