Shannon's doing much better [Jan. 19th, 2007|11:59 pm]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Saint Joseph's hospital down here in Tucson is just fantastic. The nurses in the ICU are great about letting me in to visit Shannon, who is finally able to hear and see the real world again. I'd mentioned that I had to fight to get her in to the hospital, that had less to do with her being irresponsible and more to do with the fact that her blood chemistry was so out of order that she was hallucinating and not aware of how sick she really was. She'd been sick in bed for a few days before things really went wrong and during that time she wasn't able to eat right. Things spiraled out of control and we both chalked up the warning signs to what she was recovering from.

But she's all cleaned up and eating and talking again. They let me hang out in the ICU longer than the posted rules say, so I'm hoping to spend some time with her tomorrow after work. I'm sure she's a hundred times more bored than I am without her here at home with me. I'm really relieved about how considerate they are at St. Joe's. It's a very Catholic hospital, complete with morning prayers over the PA and Mass on Sunday, and it's one of the top hospitals in the country. I have to say I'm much more comfortable there than I am at any of the other hospitals I've had experience with, even though I'm no Catholic myself.

I really appreciate all the kind words, guys, thanks.

Glad she's feeling better. Hopefully she gets out before she's TOO bored. And if it's a diet/maintenance issue rather than a out of the blue thing, punch her for me when she gets better.

What a relief. Diabetes can be scary. Good luck to you guys and thank you for all your work on EOI. It gets better and better, although I'm miffed my "It's been Go-Away-Ben all along!" theory seems to have been stomped. HA-rumph. ~_^

I'm glad that (while boring), it's comfortable and restful there for the both of you.

Go go Shannon!

Horray! Always good to start such a day with goodnews like this!

And it's sweet that they're letting you stay with her longer. Loved ones all around make the healing go much faster...

Hi! I'm a complete stranger who loves your work on "Elf Only Inn", and I just wanted to wish you and Shannon (especially Shannon right now!) the very best, especially in light of recent troubles. I hope (and pray) it turns out all right.

that's great news, Sortelli. :D Hope things get back to as close to normal as your life ever gets.

Somehow, I doubt there's ever ANY time that's "normal" in your life, but you know what I mean. :D
