I forgot my phone at home this morning in my mad dash to get out the door. Ah, no big deal I thought. I hadn't heard anything from my mother-in-law by the time I walked out the door so I figured I was cool. Nope. I drove to her house only to see the flashing lights of an ambulance.

As some of you know, Lilly has a LOT of health problems. She's on oxygen, has a feeding tube, etc etc. Yesterday afternoon we took her to the urgent care clinic due to a fever that wouldn't drop. All the tests came back fine and they were still waiting on one for strep, I believe. They discharged her since she was doing fine on 2 liters of oxygen. Sometime during the night, Lilly's oxygen levels started droping and my mother in law spent all night trying to get them to come up. When she failed to get them above (I think) 75, that' when the ambulance was called.

So now I'm home since I can't go to the ER with them. My SIL is driving the van up and MIL was going with the EMTs. I will update as soon as I hear anything.

Well since I'm mobile now I can't edit my post. So here's my update:

Lilly has pneumonia and a respiratory virus. She has been admitted to the hospital and last I heard, she's on 1.5 liters of oxygen. Mil says she may be home tomorrow or Friday... But we shall see.
