Sorry for the silence, folks. The Holiday went pretty well and my mother was in good spirits. Unfortunately, this morning, she woke up with a high fever and had to go to the hospital where she’ll likely be for a day or two. They’re checking her counts and everything, but it seems like they’re a bit down. She’ll post an update as she’s able, or we’ll keep you updated here.
UPDATE SUNDAY NIGHT:
Her white blood cell count was very, very low. They think there’s an infection at play here but it takes a day or more to get all those tests in. She’s a bit down about it but is quite strong about it all. Says she’ll update personally soon. Thanks for all the email, calls, and support.
