Three score and ten or more

One a those days.

WE finally got my oldest son into the hospital yesterday.  It took from about ten A.M. till late in the evening.  (Getting an uninsured fifty-plus uninsured person into the hospital is not an easy thing.)  He had been failing rapidly for about a week.  Besides the liver problem (which we knew about) they found one lung full of fluid,  his abdominal cavity full of fluid, gall stones, a yeast infection in his mouth   (which is one reason he has almost completely lost his voice) and as we left late last night they were taking him in for another CT scan of his chest to try to identify some kind of mass which the x-rays showed behind his bad lung.

WE are going back this morning, but for the first time in a couple of weeks I feel pretty good about his care and condition.
