A Weekend at the Hospital

It was a rough weekend.

Ellen was having some cramp-like pains Saturday. They were on and off, but after we ate dinner, they became unbearable for her. I finally talked Ellen into going to the emergency room around 9:00 PM. Well, to make a long story short. Ellen didn't actually get into the room to be looked at until around 3:30! Yep, six hours of pain, sitting in the waiting room. They ran tests on her urine and blood and found nothing. A quick cat scan showed a major infection in her colon. The doctor checked her into the hospital and put her on some strong antibiotics. Ellen should be there for a couple days and released for relaxation at home.

I got a total of three hours sleep Saturday night/Sunday morning, so I am very tired right now. I also have lots to do at work. Man! It's going to be a looooooong week . . .
