illness update

My grandmother is still in the hospital with pneumonia, but she seems to be looking better and thinking better, too. They had her in isolation for awhile, for reasons I'm not entirely clear on ... which concerned those of us who cleaned her home after the ambulance took her, but apparently it was a more or less routine precaution thing.

Just to be safe we kept Emily out of the hospital yesterday, as she's on antibiotics and her immune system is a bit compromised at the moment. I just finished a round of antibiotics last week, myself.

You know, I like to think of myself as a glass half full kind of guy ... but so far this summer has really sucked. Just had to vent, there.

I hope your grandma's condition continues to improve. Pneumonia is nothing to mess around with!

No, especially for an 87 year old!

Pneumonia is pretty scary for the elderly. I hope she gets better soon, and that your summer improves!

I would say it can't get much worse ... but we all know that's asking for trouble.

I think it's now SOP to put elderly pneumonia patients in as high risk. Seen it a few times. Glad she is feeling better and you guys take care of yourselves during this ordeal.

Seems this will go down as crappy health year for everyone, doesn't it?

pneumonia's problematic, that's for sure.

Hope your gran is better soon.

By the way, you and Emily might want to invest (when Emily's better) in the anti-pneumonia shot. Doesn't cost much (many insurance cos. cover it), and helps keep away The Big PNEUM.

Yeah, that's certainly something to think about!
