Temperatures Rise and Fall

Update February 15: Abby is home from the hospital.

Abby has been in the hospital since Friday. Since she seemed so much better yesterday, I thought I might be able to take her home today, but last night and this morning her fever came back up, and they may want to keep her another day. I want her home and well, but I know the seriousness of MRSA and the importance of aggressively addressing it.

It snowed an inch last night. Today there is snow, sleet and rain coming down. The roads are clear, but it is cold and grey outside.

I am finding myself worried about my wife, and am dealing with that by getting nostalgic about good times in our past, particularly our incredible trips together. I want her to be home and well, and I want to be packing for a road trip with her.

Still, I am here in the hospital by her bedside, trying to be a good patient advocate for her, and trying to comfort her and tend to her.

A thin, wet snow covered our small town last night, like on this Mimosa in the back yard.

  1. You’re both in our thoughts as well, Richard and Abby.

    As Peggy says, she’s fortunate to have you. And I’m thankful that medical science has advanced to the point it has — it’s incredibly painful to think of how our ancestors had to deal with various conditions and illnesses.
