Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Friday, April 9, 2010


This is as of 4:00 p.m. today.

Inklings said she is doing a little better from the pain but it has taken a lot out of her. She is still really sore and it takes her a lot of time to move anywhere.

She is not eating or drinking like she is supposed to. They called the Doctor today. He talked to her and told her she has to drink and they are diluting Gatorade to help her get some liquids down. I guess she has done better on that this afternoon but still not good enough. She eats about three bites of stuff then quits. The Doctor told her if she doesn't start eating and drinking by tomorrow they are going to have to put her back in the hospital and give her the food and liquids interveinously. She knows all of that but is still not doing good at it.

The Doctor is going to call at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow and if things haven't improved on the eating and drinking he is going to put her back in the hospital. Wish I had better news but now y'all know what I know.

I am wondering if she doesn't eat because of nausea, or lack of appetite, or just because of pain. She needs to eat for her diabetes, and drink to keep from getting dehydrated. Scary!
