Connie was admitted yesterday (Thursday) to Huntsville Hospital Main. She's
in room 767. While she's in the hospital, she cannot eat or drink anything
- everything is done through the IV. She seems to have a small infection,
but it's being treated with antibodies.

I think we better hold off on the visitors for a few more days.
> Do you know how long she will be in?
This weekend for sure. I think the earliest she will be home is Sunday, but
more likely Monday, but it's really too soon to tell. They want the bowels
to be functioning normally first. She still has some abdominal pain and
some indigestion, though neither is nearly as bad this morning as it was
yesterday. The worst pain right now is the burning sensation when she goes
to the bathroom (and it lingers for quite a while afterwards, too).
They've decided to cancel the last 2 radiations. The last 3 were presented
to us as "optional" anyway (just for good measure, I guess). Therefore, all
Connie needs to do now is get better!
- Potassium levels are too low.
- The burning sensation.
- Bowels to start functioning normally.
- Infections to go away.
