Welcome Home, Pony

Of course, my grandmother would wait until just after Little Sister Pony and I completed a nine-hour drive home to come down with (what we think is probably) a virus that required her to be whisked off to the emergency room via EMS ambulance. Mom Pony and Little Sister Pony are at the hospital waiting to see what the doctors come up with. Sigh.

All bets are off for tonight.

I hope she's feeling better soon, FP. And also that she's not contagious.

Little Sister Pony called about half an hour ago from the ER. My grandmother appears to have been smacked hard with a stomach virus that's been going around the retirement community where she lives. They're rehydrating her in the ER, and they're considering whether or not to admit her overnight for observation, which they may do just because she's ninety-two years old.

Mom Pony and Little Sister Pony may be back as early as eleven tonight, but we're not holding our breath. I've encouraged Dad Pony to go to bed, and I'll wait up for the others. We'll just have to see.

Oops! I was in the middle of a comment when I hit a wrong key. Was saying I'm sorry to hear your gran is sick--stomach virus, ugh--and hope she recuperates fully in just a little while.

She's getting better, and we're all very relieved to hear it.

She did have a minor setback, but she's doing much better, and I think she might come home tomorrow.

Gosh! I hope she and everyone else is ok. I saw in the comments its a stomach virus. Those can be really hard at her age. She's in my thoughts!

Apparently, the virus was going around the retirement community, and she just got whacked. She's doing much better, though, and she might come home tomorrow.

I'm late to see this - I hope she is feeling better and safely home now.

The problem is that the doctor doesn't do rounds until the afternoon, so she tends to get stuck overnight easily. Mom Pony just went up to the hospital to see her, and we think she'll be released tonight. Fingers crossed!
