    Apparently that is an accomplishment. I am on my lapttop so it is very hard to type.

    I thought I had the flu again. Then Monday I woke up with dry heaves, pain pain pain in my back and a fever of 103, Both kept getting worse, until finally by evening nothing was touching it. So I called TJ and told him I was sick. He said to call the Dr exchange and see what he wants me to do. I said I would do that and call him back when Dr B called me. Then I pomptly fell asleep, up and hung it up, but it rang immediately. TJ asked me Mom, what happened? In a minute the sherriff is going to be there. It had actually been over 2 hours he had waited for me. He called them when I didn’t answer. The sherriff called the paramedics and they convinced me I just had to go for a little ambulance drive, I believe the word Morphine had been dangled in front of me.

    So, off we went, no lights or siren, darn it, And after multiple blood tests, they have sepsis in my blood--ecoli, bladder infection and at least one other. One of which is only found in cats and dogs.

    I even had a knock down drag out fight with the nurse the other night, because of the back pain. They kept saying I had reported pain before and there wasn’t anything else they could do for me. In their

    defense I have to say I was cranky, but I could,t get comfortable for anything. So yesterday I got an MRI and it turns out the infection’s in my back,too. It may be more places, but now when I ask for morphine, I get it!.

    I have to have antibiotics for the next 6 wks. Don’t know how long I will be in here. I am in St Clare Health Center on Bowles in Fenton mo 63026. They moved me to room 5201. I will have to go back to the nursing home from here.

    Thank you so much for checking in, Connie. You know many of us are worried about you and praying for your recovery. Gosh, when you get sick, you certainly get a doozy of whatever it is.

    I hope you recover quickly to get to the next step of being transferred to the nursing facility.

    Is your son looking after your kitties?

    Ahoy There Sweetie!

    Just got up. Was wurkin' yesterday evening and got home around midnight.

    Good to see you're on the road to recovery. Obviously, many folks were going nutz looking for you. We were begining to think thet either it was a new version of "Where In The World" is 'conniecat'; or, that Simon was holding you hostage?

    Welcome home back on-board !
