I am here, alone today. Angela has gone to see her mom. Yesterday, she was worried because she couldn't get hold of her mom and dad. She called her sister, and her BIL told her that they were all at the hospital. Angela's mom is in the ICU. I guess she had a high fever and then fainted at her regular appointment. Her blood pressure was dangerously low. So low in fact that they were worried that they wouldn't be able to bring her back to consciousness. They finally got her BP to a level that she was stable. This chemo stuff is scary. We've been having this type of scare off and on now for a month. One day her mom is fantastic, and the next, can't even walk or open her eyes.
Angela is there now, to spend today and tomorrow with her mom in the hospital. I will miss having her here... but she needs to be with her mom right now. I get that.

I'm sorry to hear this-- I went though this with my mom and it is very hard to handle. Best of luck and we'll keep you guys (and her mom) in our thoughts!
