Thinking over a phone call I got earlier. Mom is in the hospital with a bad abscess from a hernia repair. It ruptured while Mom and Dad were in Colorado, so they are not home.
They both told me to stay home, just wanted some input on treatment and to let me know. Then I had to call my baby sister, who will call the other sister. My brother is on the road, will talk to him when he gets settled for the night.
She's fine now, a bit loopy, looks like she will need IV antibiotics x 6 months. Dad is fine, too. Mom says she feels better now that she has in several months.
Requesting some comfort and love from my friends.
