Raindrops keep fallin' on my head...

Ok, I'm at the CPE house tonight because I'm on call. Nothing has happened at the two hospitals yet. However, YS called me this afternoon. Ma had to be taken to the Emergency Room. She was feeling weak and tired, had some low blood pressure, hematuria, and black, tarry stools (Just what you wanted to know). I include her list of symptoms because they sounded to me like a bleed somewhere...

Anyway, I called Oldest Brother's Wife because she works at the home where Ma has been staying. OBW took Ma to the hospital. So, I talked to her and she said Ma has pancreatitis and a bleed somewhere. So, they're admitting her to investigate what is going on. I would sincerely appreciate your prayers for peace, comfort, and strength for her and my family as we have yet another roadblock to Ma's health.

Oh yeah, one last thing... Supa isn't a heartless jerk. He totally offered to cover for me so I could go home, but I decided to stay here because from what I've gathered, nothing is really acute right now, and I planned on going home tomorrow after work anyway. Plus, I called Pastor and he told me he'd go right down to be with the fam. I really appreciate that, and it helps me further realize that the ministry of presence is a totally awesome thing.

I've been thinking of your whole family often and will continue to do so. Please, keep us up to date. Call if you need/want anything. You're a short trip across I-80 from me, don't forget, ok?

I guess when it rains, it pours. My grandma is in the hospital, too.
