SO hasn’t been feeling well. Had an appointment for Wed. Woke me up @ 2:15am and said he needed to go. Spent two hrs in ER. They did some tests and found pnuemonia. Dr ripped him a new one for not coming in sooner. Will likely be in hospital until Weds or Friday.
He hasn’t been taking care of himself lately. His brother died in July and he’s been having a really hard time coping. They had a very strong relationship. It’s to hard to imagine one without the other.
I’m going to fix something to eat, take a nap and head back to the hospital for a bit. I don’t function well after one hour of sleep. I have tobe to work tomorrow @ 5:30am.

He should be appreciably better after 48 hours on antibotics (if it is bacterial pneumonia). Ditto with no antibiotics if it is viral. They will likely give him breathing treatments. Those and lots of rest and fluid should help him to feel better soon.

Just an update. He is feeling a little better. He was much sicker than they orginally thought. So he will be coming home Sunday.
I can tell he’s getting better. He’s getting pissy about being poked and proded and people calling. He’s the type that wants to be left completely alone when he’s sick.
