She's got pneumonia. They wanted to admit her Wednesday when she went to the ER but she wouldn't let them. They gave her antibiotics and she decided not to take them because she said they made her throw up. Today I went over to check on her and she was pretty bad off and I finally got her to go. I basically told her that if she didn't cooperate I would pick her up and carry her there. They admitted her. Her SAT was 91 when we got there, her BP was 104/47, her temp was 102.8 and her pulse was 148. That wasn't good. So, she's there getting IV antibiotics and hopefully she will be better soon. I'll keep ya'll posted.

I hope that she gets better soon. I remember when I was scared when my mom was in the hospital for surgery and they found out they had to do more surgery,

Hope she feels better soon. My dad's had pneumonia twice, so I've seen some stuff. I'm anything but dumb when it comes to medical stuff. We're here for ya, OOM. *hugs*
