Itty Bitty Request

I'll post about Philadelphia and The Wedding later, promise. But first, the abovementioned itty-bitty request.

Little Sister Pony called a couple of hours ago to say that Mom Pony was feverish and vomiting and that she was driving up to work her Licensed Medical Practicioner mojo on her. This, by the way, consists of calling Mom Pony's doctor and possibly a trip to the emergency room. The current best guess, and I don't know who this guess comes from, is that it might be Lyme Disease. Little Sister Pony said she'd keep me updated because she knows that the Pony Parents will be too distracted to do so. Which is why she called in the first place, actually.

So. . . could everyone please send some good vibes out to Mom Pony? Little Sister Pony feels there's no cause for excessive alarm, but it is Mom Pony, after all. Good vibes couldn't hurt.

Here's hoping it just turns out to be a random bug and not Lyme!!! We had a scare here with a big bug bite on DD1's leg a couple months ago and it was not fun. Keep us posted.

By the way, there doesn't happen to be any Sacred Harp singing in Chicago this weekend, does there? I'll be downtown the whole weekend, but if there is a sing, it seems shameful to be there and miss it.

Thanks. I shall have people sing for Mom Pony tomorrow evening in Hyde Park.

This weekend. . . let's see, this is the fourth Sunday, so there's no citywide monthly. I don't think there's a northside singing on Sunday, but you can always call the Harp Line to make sure: (773) 276-HARP.

Thanks for the pointer. I ended up having no time to do anything other than the conference and hang out with my kids, so if anything happened, I didn't really miss it anyway:) We will make it out there one of these years for a sing, especially now that some of have been to Chicago and seen what a cool city it is!

Wishing Mom Pony all the good vibes in the world. Hope it's just a bug.

In the weird, insect-borne disease category, by the way, the same day my cat got diagnosed with cuterebra infestation, my friend's dog was sick and tested positive for Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.

We all ought best just stay indoors :-)

Thanks. I hope it's just a bug, too, although "just a bug" can be pretty dangerous in its own way.

How does one get Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever on the prairie?

I'll be thinking good thoughts and sending them straight to Ponyland. Keep us updated.
Jul. 19th, 2007 03:23 am (UTC)
Thank you. Ponyland can use all the good thoughts it gets.

I shall send every possible good vibe I can toward the estimable Mom Pony! May she soon be back in the very pink of health! And prayers for all of you who love her and worry...

Jul. 19th, 2007 03:22 am (UTC)
Thank you! I hope she gets better soon. She's one of the healthiest people I know, but it's always distressing when one's mom is sick.

I'm sending vibes from Taos, FP, and this is the home of crystal mojo so it's sure to work.
Jul. 19th, 2007 03:24 am (UTC)
Thank you! Crystal mojo plus Little Sister Pony's nursing-fu has got to be good.
Jul. 19th, 2007 05:05 am (UTC)

Good vibes and prayers to you and Mom Pony.
Jul. 19th, 2007 12:42 pm (UTC)
Thank you. Little Sister Pony said she'd keep me updated, so I should know something either late today or early tomorrow.

Thank you. I hope Mom Pony feels better soon, too!

After all, you've got an expert in the family with Little Sister Pony.

Little Sister Pony was actually grouching over the phone to me about this. Apparently, Dad Pony called her before calling Mom Pony's doctor. Little Sister Pony may be a registered nurse, but she's only been one for a couple of months!

Loads sent. With the hour difference, they should arrive in time... or serve to keep her defences up! :-)
Jul. 19th, 2007 12:46 pm (UTC)
Thank you. Although I suspect that you are more than an hour's difference away from Mom Pony, if you're home, and that means Spain, right?
Jul. 19th, 2007 01:15 pm (UTC)
Sending good vibes. Any word yet?
Jul. 19th, 2007 01:18 pm (UTC)
I'm not expecting word until this evening at the earliest.

Thanks for the vibes. Every bit helps.

Feverish and vomiting is always scary. I hope she just ate something that didn't agree with her or something else that is over quickly with no lasting effects. Good vibes from Florida, FP. Let us know what you find out.
Jul. 19th, 2007 02:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the Florida vibes. I love that Mom Pony can have vibes from all over the world. That has to be good for her. I'm not expecting word until tonight, though.
Jul. 19th, 2007 05:16 pm (UTC)
I hope it is nothing serious. Sending up prayers for Mom Pony.
Jul. 19th, 2007 06:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I hope to hear from Little Sister Pony sometime this evening with news.
Jul. 19th, 2007 08:46 pm (UTC)
I hope Mom Pony is better soon.
Jul. 19th, 2007 09:01 pm (UTC)
I do, too. Vibes can only help. Thank you.
Jul. 20th, 2007 12:41 am (UTC)
Sending good vibes zzzzzzzzzzzzzap!

I hope it's not Lyme Disease or, indeed, anything long-term. Hope it's just a temporary, if unpleasant, event.
Jul. 20th, 2007 02:39 am (UTC)
Thank you for the wishes. They seem to be doing good already.
