As I was in the middle of writing the UA/Illinois post, Mom called and said she was feeling poorly, her blood pressure was soaring, and the nurse at Fellowship Square suggested she go to urgent care. I went and picked her up and took her over, where they determined she needed to go to the emergency room. Her blood pressure was 203/101, pulse was 103, and her heart was skipping beats when we arrived at the hospital. I stayed with her until 9:30 p.m., and Daryl and Gisele were there until 12:30 a.m. She spent the night in the ER. When I called this morning, she said she had not slept at all, but they had done several tests (including a couple of EKGs and full blood workup) and had started her on some medication to get her blood pressure down. She was feeling better this morning, but was longing for a more comfortable bed.

More to come…
