This weekend was not what we expected!

I don't know about you, but if my husband says he needs to get to the emergency room, I know that it's bad. He'd been up most of the night coughing and was starting to have trouble breathing. He was admitted to the hospital Saturday morning with double pneumonia.

Just Friday night, we'd been talking about our plans for the weekend, shopping and laundry and finishing the first draft of my latest wip. It sure wasn't to spend all Saturday morning in the emergency room and to still be in the hospital Sunday afternoon. He's been on IV antibiotics and having breathing treatments, and is much better than he was earlier. Hopefully, I'll be able to take him home on Monday.

Gotta love laptop computers. Today I'm sitting by his side, checking my e-mails via the hospital's free wireless access, posting this to my blog, and writing on my wip, even if I'm not able to get the first draft done.

Life, like writing, is a roller coaster ride. Ups and downs and rolling with what comes our way. Hopefully tomorrow it will be from home.

Oh hun, so sorry y'all had to spend the weekend at the hospital! Good to hear he is feeling better now, though.

Thanks, Jenna. I hope I can bring him home tomorrow.

Ugh! What a horrid weekend! Glad he's feeling better and that you can bring him home soon!

Thanks, Larissa. I took today off from the ddj - thinking positive that he'll come home today
