Now It's Mom
My mother's in the hospital in Philadelphia with pneumonia and the beginnings of CHF (congestive heart failure). This is actually a relief to my mother, who expects to feel better there, and also to me, since she's been falling a lot and I've been worried. My sister and I have very different approaches to calling 911, and I got cranky with her yesterday because it sounded to me like a call would have been appropriate then. I'm glad she called this morning.
I'm also glad that my sister and I only have one parent apiece to deal with in person. Part of the rationale for Dad moving out here was to give my sister a break from caring for both parents, and right now, she must indeed be happy about that.
