_1 December ‘09 Boy we don’t want to have another “yesterday”… About 3am Louise got out of bed and all hell broke loose. For the next 28 hours we had a very sick lady on our hands. Not too sure why she got so sick, but it could have kicked off by having 4 glasses of wine vs the normal 2 when she has any. She felt fine after enjoying a day and evening with Sol and Carol playing dominos, and even after taking a long walk down the boulevard a little while after. Then came the 3 o’clock… This morning she was so dehydrated and suffering from extreme dizziness that we decided to see a doctor. Well the best way was to go to the emergency room at the hospital. It was 10 minutes after walking in that we were with a doctor, and another 10 minutes and she was getting a couple of IV’s. The next thing was a draw of her blood and the analysis. Her “Lipids” were double what they should be and her cholesterol was elevated a little as well. Another 30 minutes and she was about ready to be “checked in” for the night for observation.
_Everyone thinks she’ll be on her way first thing in the morning so keep your fingers crossed for us. We’ve got a large new private room with a view, sleeping couch, English speaking TV, Wi-Fi Internet, and good food (hell, I think I’ve found paradise…). Besides, we’ve got a good campsite right outside the main door and within the gates of the parking lot.
