Emergency Room Visit
Things went South yesterday afternoon. All of a sudden Don was shaking violently and freezing cold. His tempature spiked and he had stabbing abdominal pains. I loaded him up nand we went to the ER. Nothing showed up in the x-ray and not much more in the cat scan... His O2 level was really low... running 89-91. Normal is 98 or higher. They gave him morphene and delodid for the pain, put him on O2 and started an IV of fluids and antibotics. At 1:30am we were finally put into a room. I am back at the farm picking up some things to take back to him. Very tired... Not sure how long he will be in the hospital.
