More Fun On A Monday...

Hope everyone had a good mother's day out there... My sister, fresh from sending my nephew back to the marines last monday, is now very sick and in the hospital. She's a diabetic and was very nauseous and in great pain. That's what sent her to the ER. What kept her in the hospital (and in the ICU) was when they checked her blood sugar, it read 67. So they tried to give her some sugars and sweets to bump it up a bit. Something didn't sound right about that and as sure as there are cheetos in Albany, they came back into her room and said the blood sugar machine had malfunctioned and they needed to retake it. Oh perfect... well, they retook it alright. The result: 670... that is not a typo... six hundred and seventy... Many thoughts going through my head at this point. I'm too tired to be mad. I'm glad that she didn't slip into a coma or worse. I'm going to be spending most of my time there at the hospital, which is also where I WORK... ugh! I'm hopeful though that she'll pull through just fine. Ahhhh life, never a dull moment...
