Strange Things are Afoot at the Circle K.: Homecoming

Sunday, August 01, 2004


Well, my mom got out of the hospital today. Four doctors examined her yesterday. Three said she could go home yesterday, one said she couldn't, so they kept her. But even the one that said no, said that she would most likely get to go home today, and she did. They think it may have been her blood pressure medication that caused it, but they won't say for sure, because if they said that's what it was, we could sue the doctor that put her on it. Everyone thinks that's what it was though, because that medication has a history of being dangerous in certain conditions, such as if you get too hot while taking it. So they took her off the blood pressure medication, especially since no one knew why she was even on it. My mom's normal doctor has been making her take it for a long time now, even though she didn't have high blood pressure. She had it for like two days, and then it went back down and hasn't been high since, but the doctor still insisted she take it.

That's really all I have to say today.
