What a day...
It's been a day that felt like a week. It started out just great - a nice long chat with my parents, during which I spotted this American Snout butterfly. The first one I've seen here in our garden since July 2012, which was cause for some excitement.
Then, a trip to the gym, completing my goal of five visits for the week. Yay, me.
Then lunch with hubs, which was nice. We were just contemplating a nap when the call came in... MIL was being dispatched to the hospital.
Hubs jumped in the car and met the ambulance at the hospital; I followed shortly after (after cancelling our plans to have dinner with our neighbors tonight). Long story short, it seems like she is suffering from moderate dehydration; not uncommon in the elderly, but can be quite dangerous. She is being kept in hospital overnight just as a precaution. They will continue to hydrate her and monitor vitals with the plan to release her back to the nursing home in the morning.
It's a little after 8 and I just got home. Hubs is staying until she gets settled in a ward for the night; then he'll come home.
Yes, it's been a long day.
I hear a glass of wine calling my name...
