Marilyn Hangs in There. Sister Sue is in the Hospital. 
doctor stethoscope, stethoscope

I sat up with Marilyn during much of the night, just in case she needed me. (I was quietly watching "I Love Lucy" for some time...)

Anyway, Marilyn is hanging in there. Today was rough. The second and third days are expected to be the most difficult, actually. She's in pain and very swollen and trying to get used to the denture piece she has to wear until they can replace the front tooth. (She had to take it out and rinse it today.) She was rinsing with salt water today.

She ate some mashed potatoes, a tiny bit of cottage cheese and a bowl of ice cream with a handful of raspberries. Not much food for an entire day, but at least she did eat.

She's not only in pain and swollen, but she isn't feeling well. She's running a temperature, which is also normal. Anyway, she feels lousy, poor thing.

So she's been lying around on the sofa and playing with her iPad and watching TV.

We watched a bunch of "MacGyver" episodes today. (We were huge fans of the series when it originally aired and it was fun seeing these...)

Sister Sue was admitted to Good Sam today. They still don't seem to know what exactly is wrong with her, but they're working to get the water weight off. And I suppose they're treating her anemia. Plus they've done tons of tests to figure out what's going on. Larry is going to contact me with results.

I spoke briefly to Sue on her cell phone and she's hanging in there.

I also was in touch with Adeena briefly, and with June, too.

I'm yawning like mad, even though I did get a nap at one point today. I guess I'm still sleepy. So I think I'll lie down for a bit, at least. I kind of hate to sleep when she's lying awake, though. We might watch some movie together. I can always sleep later.

We had a weird power outage at one point. It was quick, but still enough to mess up our alarm system (!!!) and turn off the air conditioning and the TV. I couldn't tell about our computers. Annoying, anyway.

I didn't get to any blogging from last week. Maybe tomorrow. (sigh)

I have had Marilyn soooo in my heart and thoughts! Glad she got to get the work done, BUT I know it's soo tough right now too. And being worn down from the event.. sooo much LOVE!

Love to Sue too! Hope they have answers today for her.

Everyone take a nap as soon as you can :)

Hahaha! Just answered you with my fanfic journal. I'm more out of it than I thought, obviously.

Seriously, we're all three hanging in there. I think Marilyn is feeling a little better today. That's a good thing, as we need to go shop for some more soft food for her to eat.

They're talking about letting Sue go home tomorrow, even though they don't know what caused the anemia (!!!). I guess it's surprising they kept her this long!

Thanks for the kind words and thoughts!

Hope everyone is feeling better, and you well rested, soon!

I hope I can get back to my normal sleep pattern soon. I've just been so WORRIED about Marilyn. I'll be glad when this week is over.

Actually, I'll be glad when NEXT WEEK is over -- then the two of us will be on vacation!!! And MARILYN MONDAYS will start in July (where she gets every Monday off until the end of the year). That's something we just love, Frank!

I hope that you are all better by now.

You are in my thoughts.

Thanks so much, sweetie.
