adventures in dysthymia

Sunday, December 11, 2005

Adding to the previous post, the hospital called around five to let us know my aunt had taken a turn for the worse and we went off to Perry (about 35 miles). Seems she has an abscess in her lung (she was a smoker most of her adult life and had mild emphysema, which may play a role) and a really bad infection. They've drained it, but Aunt Dotty is not doing well and may not make it through the night. If she does, obviously she will never be able to live on her own again.

We visited a while and the priest came to administer the sacraments so that's about all we can do for now. It's a matter of waiting and praying.
