Going to ER

Update: got home. Reuben has trachyitus and seemed to be having too much fun with the Drs and nurses to sleep in the ER even as the clock passed 1am. Get home to find tenancy deal has collapsed again as oven needs replacing. Braxton Hicks going like crazy. A very bad night.

* * *

Wednesday night, night nurse last night no show, no call, long night, Reuben still has cough but O2 sats are low. Advised to come in tonight due to risk of pneumonia or trachyitus. Blood in trach from all his coughing.

Despite this, had enjoyed today, PT, school, chiro, Reuben seemed great despite cough. Have worked hard to get new tenants in in London after last contract fell to pieces when Reu was in hospital in August. Tenants move in tomorrow and I haven't finished the agreements, inventory, nothing. No idea how this will pan out. Another night in a hospital chair is going to feel really bad right now when I'm so close. We're all dealing with way too much at the moment. Kristina of course has been magic.

I know you and Jason have already told me to go to sleep tonight instead of coming to the ER but that is FAR EASIER SAID THAN DONE! I'm waiting for my phone calls with updates tonight!

I have more to say, but I'll send that to you privately.

I love the Dodds!

Oh my goodness Catherine. I'm so sorry to hear how everything is going. I'm praying for Reu to feel better, for you to stay rested, and for the whole tenant thing to finally go through so you guys don't have to worry about it anymore! You three are on our hearts.
Love,
Victoria

I cannot believe a nurse would just not show up, not call, nothing...unbelieveable. Hope things are better now.
