My sister is in the hospital. She went to the doctor really sick on Tuesday and he sent her to emergency. They said she had a really bad respitory infection and gave her antibiotics and steroids. She started getting worse. Now they are running more tests to see if there is something else wrong. They are going to do a CT of her sinus' to be sure the infection hasn't spread and they are talking about doing a spinal tap to rule out meningitus. She's hanging in there but is quite depressed from being in the hospital.
My mom went to the doctor on Wednesday and I had to miss the appointment due to my interview. I guess the doctor flat out told her that if she didn't quit smoking NOW she was headed for a slow and painful death. I'm just hoping she will quit cause should could have some more productive time if she did. If she doesn't I don't see her ever getting up and about again. She can't even walk from the bedroom to the kitchen without stopping to rest.
Sorry for all the downer stuff. I'm posting this from the couch with my new Acer Aspire One netbook. It's such a cute little machine for surfing the web from the couch. I found it on Woot.com for $250 and couldn't resist.
