Fun Saturday Turns Scary...Ends Well
What started out to be a fun day, got abruptly interrupted with a phone call and then a run to the hospital. It was my daughter calling to say my brother was in the hospital for tests. He'd been having sudden abdominal pain. He called them, as they live very near each other. My Son in law took him to ER in the morning. Daughter found me by phone at the Whole Earth Fair an hour away from them all. I had to return home and wait for DH to get home too (he was off on his own somewhere & he'd left his cell phone at home!) but by the time it took me to pack an overnight bag he walked in the door and we were off and running. Long story shorter, we got to the ER after Bro got his diagnosis of gall stones...and was being released to go home. Whew. He has a Dr. appointment for two weeks from now to speak to a surgeon. They'll decide what to do. In the meantime he's to eat bland food and if pain returns to go directly to the ER again. We will sleep over, hang out tomorrow a bit, see how bro is doing and then go home if all is well. Then I will tell you about meeting Terry Busse for a quick visit at her awesome booth at the fair; seeing my friend Diane's wonderful quilts; and my fun, fun, fun time with grand kids. And of course there will be photos so stay tuned.
