Nurse Molly

Wow; it's been a strange three days.  First we thought Mom would be discharged on Tuesday, then Wednesday.  This morning, things looked well.  Mom actually felt like eating something other than Jell-O, and enjoyed her breakfast.  And then the nurse came in to take her vitals and discovered her heart out of rhythm.  Then it was order meds; get an echocardiogram; call in the cardiologist.

And at 3pm, things took another turn:  Mom's blood pressure dropped to 71/51.  They put her back in bed, and hooked up her IV.   Checked her BP again an hour later; 83/51.  They've X-rayed her chest, and I'm guessing the echo is coming tomorrow morning.

I've been sleeping in the room with Mom, so I can assist her to the restroom, get her water, and we've been watching the Olympic coverage.

Contract Update:
I received a contract for book #5, Endless Love:)  Caty has been impatient, wanting me to constantly check my email for news.  And now she's settled down, aside from nagging at me to at least begin filling out the cover art request.  I've been a little distracted, Cait....

Currently Reading:
Pretend With Me by Amber Skyze.  It took some time to figure out where I'd left off, but think I've got it.  I'm not that cracked up about the way my Kindle reads the pdf documents; I have to enlarge every page.  I'm thisclose to buying the book so I don't have to fight it! (I'd won it from Amber several months back).  Makes me want to check the other documents I've loaded onto it...

I LOVED Jean Joachim's The Marriage List! Definite Recommended Read:)  And discovered The Dating ListThe  was available, so bought it.

Also bought:
-Why Johnny Died (free until Aug 6th) by Marlis Day
-Through Shattered Light by Tielle St. Clare (she never emailed me back, so bought it again)
-Sisters In Time by Ginger Simpson (I've been wanting this for a while!)
-The Anniversary Gift by Sommer Marsden (another one I've wanted for a while!)

Hopefully, that should keep me in reading material for a while:)
