Packing a bag for Boston

    Reservation is made. I leave tomorrow night and return on Wednesday night providing everything improves in that time. I'll update as I am able.
    Thank You all for the support. I barely slept 2 hours last night and am whooped so I am getting my act together here now and will try to get a good night's sleep. Sahin said Audra was asking to take a shower so he is about to help her do that and he would have her call me for a couple of minutes.

    Beryl I wish I were there also but I had to wait to talk to Audra to know what to do. I also felt that my SIL may want to do this on his own and I have to respect his wishes to a point. But,,,,,,,when I heard her voice today I decided oh no I need to get there and do what needs to be done. And to tell you the truth after only one day with 4 kids he sounded very anxious to have me arrive. Somehow we as a family will get through this crisis and come out of it stronger. I guess I had better raid the Christmas Bin and bring gifts for the kids. I can't go home empty handed they just wouldn't understand. :grin

    I wish all of your sailing this weekend a very happy time and safe travels..

    Sorry to hear of you stressing over this BJ!!! Hope they get something working for her overnight and you get to speak to a much calmer daughter tomorrow.....with all her kids, that will add to her stress thinking of them at home and hopefully all will work well for dad to be with them so she can rest.

    I am glad you are going. I wanted my mom here during this time in our lives and she is not. A loss for both of us. You will both be glad you went. Hope it all turns out well. God Bless.

    Wish the news was better but I think you are making the right decision by flying out there. Even though your DD and SIL may not admit it, I'm sure they will be happy to have you there for support.

    Judy - a paralytic ileus can be scary and very painful. She really should be admitted so she can be NPO and given IV fluids. The Docs are right in one sense.....you don't want to give her anything that will interfere with getting her bowels moving again. Pain meds, especially narcotics, can prevent that. Prayers going out for a quick recovery.
