Readers recall that my wife Abby is having a rough health year. After a three-day hospital stay in February, August was pretty much taken up by a urinary tract infection and recovery.
She experienced what seemed to be a full recovery, and we were able to attend her family reunion October 9 and 10, and celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary October 12.
But later in that week, she got sicker and weaker, and Friday, October 16, EMS transported her to the Mercy Ada emergency room. After a week at Mercy being treated with intravenous antibiotics for pneumonia, we moved her to “swing bed” care (rehab) at the Coal County Memorial Hospital where we got such good care in August.
She is resting and receiving intravenous fluids and potassium, but at the moment isn’t showing much improvement.
Sorry this post isn’t optimistic. Many people ask about her every day, and I wrote this update so they will know.
The dogs and I miss her, and I know she wants to come home. We are on hold.
