Sister Sue in the Hospital -- June Not Doing Well... 
doctor stethoscope, stethoscope
Quick update.

Sister Sue went into Emanuel hospital this afternoon. I spoke to both Larry (her son) and Candy (her daughter). And to Sue, several times.

She's full of liquid, which must come off. Sue has been diagnosed with (terminal) Pulmonary Hypertension, and a-fib (they go hand in hand). She's been given several doses of nitroglycerin, which helps both the heart and the lungs.

Prayers (and/or good thoughts) are requested for her (and her family), please. Much appreciated!

I'm also VERY concerned for our friend (and neighbor) June. I think it's possible she, too, should be in the hospital right now!

Again, your prayers (and/or good thoughts) are requested. Much appreciated!

I spent some time on the phone today, trying to work out my prescriptions. (sigh) Part of the stuff isn't covered. The new medicine shouldn't be taken at night for a few days according to the pharmacist (great). I just went to take my nightly meds, and they gave me THE WRONG DOSAGE of my Metformin, which Leslie wanted to change! I'm still on 850, rather than 500.


And LaToya (her assistant) has a call in to insurance to find out what they WILL cover in place of the two medicines they refuse to cover...

So annoying.

Well, time for bed. We've got a big (and LATE) day tomorrow!

Good night, all!!!
