Tuesday morning my mom was admitted to the ICU with pneumonia and sepsis. I got here to Milwaukee Tues night. She's not doing too badly, all things considered, they weaned her off her cardiac meds already and her vitals are stable, but she's a copd-er on oxygen at home, so getting her back off the ventilator and the breathing tube out are going to be the big challenges.

I don't think she's going to die, but.

Everybody's pretty scared, especially her, when she's awake. I'mpretty much staying at the hospital, except tonight I came home with my sister to get a shower and do some laundry and talk things over. No wireless at the hospital. Bummer. For a crisis, there's a surprising amount of downtime.

Anyway, yeah. Pray for her, or whatever it is you do, please.
