I don't know if I will need it but I have to be ready to go just in case. I got a call at work today. Audra was crying hysterically. I couldn't understand much I did manage to find out she had called her best friend to come over and she was there. What I could determine is that she passed out twice, striking her head once, she had been vomitting since 3am and couldn't get up off the bathroom floor she was so weak. I spoke to her girlfriend and instructed her to call 911. She was rushed to the hospital about 2pm mountain time. It took us 3 hours to reach my SIL who is now on his way to the hospital. My cousin is an EMT and my Aunt and Uncle who live close by both EMT's raced to the scene when they heard the dispatcher give the adress over the scanner. My cousin rode in with her to the hospital. Her BP was dangerously low and she was not doing well according to my aunt. I was on the front desk covering for the entire day and called for a supervisor to relieve me I had families all around me and I just could not get the required calls out I needed to at that desk. I managed to get outside finally and to get some calls out to my mother and aunt, and I asked my mother to take control of the situation and asked that she send my sister to the hospital to be with her until we could reach my SIL who had his phone off because he was at work. We finally got the main number and got a message to him at work. My sister raced to the hospital she is also an EMT and they have already given her 3 bags of IV's she is going on number 4, they have drawn labs we are waiting for the results, her blood sugar was low but her BP dangerously low. The have given her 3 drugs to stop the vomitting but have been unsuccessful. They just did a stomach scan. So now we wait. The doctor spoke to my sister a few minutes ago and said he will probably admit her. She had fallen a few days ago and her back was in severe pain and now they just gave her a pain med for that. Audra has a valve problem in her heart so having low blood pressure for her means she was really in a mess. Thank God that her girlfriend was home from work today. She is still with the kids and when I called there she said Judy your daughter is a saint to do this every day of her life. Nikie doesn't have children. She assured me the kids were Ok but they are of course off the wall with the uncertainty of where Mommy is. She managed to get Kiarra to bed but the others were still up when I spoke to her a few minutes ago. An angel was watching over us today because Nikie works tons of hours and it was just a miracle she went to Audra's aid when she did. I have my sister going back to talk to the doctor at this point they are not ruling out viral, but they are looking for something in her stomach my sister couldn't remember illio something. I am on pins and needles here. I can't make any decisions about hopping a plane until I hear what is happening there. These are the hardest times to be so far away. I could use some real positive energy sent to MA right now. I've been holding up pretty well but the longer this goes the more I feel like I'm going to fall to pieces.
