Last night my boyfriend and I left to go to Orchard Supply Store when I got a phone call from my uncle saying my bedridden uncle fell while using the bathroom. We rushed home as quickly as we could and my uncle was face down in the hallway. My uncle and boyfriend tried to get him up but couldn't. I called 911 and had an ambulance come to pick him up and they took him to the hospital. He had been not feeling well for the past 2 days prior to his fall and was throwing up. I thought it was the stomach flu that was going around. The dr ran tests and found out he had a 105 degree fever, might have bruised ribs from the fall, and pneumonia. They admitted him to the ICU department for having a fast and irregular heart rate, bladder infection, pneumonia, and complaints of chest and abdominal pain. He might have a stool virus (I couldn't understand the nurse today because of a heavy accent) and has stones in his gallbladder.They're trying to figure out what's going on with his heart and stomach. I'm running on less than 2 hours sleep today and will be going back to visit him after dinner. I came home to allow him to rest and to make dinner and make sure to pay the bills since it's the beginning of the month. Going out to water our plants and do some of my exercises. I woke up this morning to get my 3.25 mile walk in.
