hospital slumber parties

hey friends, i'm blogging on my iPad from my mom's hospital room. she was admitted yesterday after having an anaphylactic allergic reaction. looks like we'll be having a couple more slumber parties here because the swelling in her throat and tongue isn't going down as quickly as the doctors would like. my dad is still in europe, so i'm staying here at the hospital with my mom and making sure my siblings are taken care of. please keep my mom and i in your prayers. i would love and totally appreciate lots of prayers! the steroids are keeping my mom wired, so i have yet to sleep! we've stayed up watching movies and playing games on the iPad. so i guess it was money well spent!

That is SO scary... ugh...
I am glad that you are at the hospital and that she is being well taken care of.
i am so afraid of this happening to me as I have random new allergies that are creeping up on me all the time (can you believe that I am deathly allergic to apples? scary business)
Tell her I say GET BETTER LOVELY LADY!!
And enjoy the ipad :)

Are you reading everyone's blogs to your mom to keep her entertained? I think she would like Jess's Urban Dictionary feature a lot.

As you know, you and your fam are in my thoughts.

Maybe some Chelsea Handler would cheer her up. Or the tour of Monique's house.

Meredith -- I am so sorry to read about your mom. My son is allergic to nuts, I've had to use the Epipen on him (despite being super, extra, OCD careful about what he eats!), so I do know how scary those severe allergic reactions can be. I really hope your mom recovers soon, it sounds like she is getting good care, both from you and the hospital, so I am hoping she makes a quick recovery. Praying for her ... - J

Brittany said...
