My mom called me about 30 minutes ago and told me she was coming home from work early. She's had pain in her stomach and back for about a week and she's going to either the E.R. or the Dr. if it doesn't ease up soon.

I was sound asleep. At 1:30 the kids across the street let their loudest firecracker go off right in the street next to our building. It woke me up with a start. My heart starting racing.

I understand setting of fireworks for the 4th. But this building is filled with 40 apartments of elderly residents. Most of them have heart problems. I am more surprised than upset. These kids are not really "kids." The are in their late teens, early 20's. They have been doing these fireworks every years since I have lived here. But never that light into the night. They usually stop by 11 p.m. Fireworks are illegal in this state.

Update - in the E.R. with my mom. They took blood and gave her some Zolfran for nausea. Waiting for blood work results now.

Thanks for the update. I hope it is nothing more than a tummy ache because she ate too much.

How are things? It's rough to spend the night in the ER, for a patient and their loved ones.

I don't know Addie, the poster said she had this pain for a week.

Update - she has a uti, stomach inflammation, and is dehydrated. They are admitting her for the weekend, have her on an iv and antibiotics and a painkiller as needed. You're right Princess Fiona - it is rough. But the staff is really nice.

Last night some idiot across the street set of one of those really big fire crackers at 1:30 in the morning. It sounded like it went off right in my apartment. I was in a sound sleep. I have been awake since. Now I have to get ready to go to my daughter's house for a late July 4th party. Oh joy. I hope she has a bed in the yard.

We don't have too many dogs that run loose in our area, but they sure do a lot of barking. One barks, and they all start barking. There is one family up the street whose dog would run out if I walked my dog on a leash, and that's why I quit walking my dog. They would call him back in right away and he went, but he had to run across the street to bark and sniff my dog and back across to go home. He could have been killed.

I'm glad it was not too serious. We older ladies tend to ignore UTI symptoms until they are only fixable with IV meds.
