A Quick Update on My Niece's Condition

And I'll serenade Venus,

I'll serenade Mars,

And I'll burn with the fire of ten million stars,

And in time, and in time,

We will all be stars.....

Quick Update on My Niece's Condition:

My darling niece is, unfortunately, in the hospital--- for the second day--- with a severe case of pyelonephritis.

It came out of the blue and skipped the "preliminary" stages---going right to the serious stage. My little niece is still, according to my sister (who is sitting a constant vigil at her bedside) looking wan and lethargic---and still with fever.

But the doctor has seen her twice today but states that the antibiotics are helping, thank goodness.

From the very bottom of my heart, I sincerely thank you all for your prayers and good wishes---thank you so very, very much--- all of you.

I'll keep you informed....

Bo

Thank you for letting us know about your niece. And so sorry for your osteoarthritis - will try and find nontraditional help information for it, after the surgery on my broken foot. I'll keep sending positive energy both of your ways. aj

I am praying for your neice and the rest of the family. Is this a kidney infection of some kind?

Not a blogger (yet)but got to see your work through Deacon Barry, who is a good friend of mine. A very bright guy. Sorry to hear about the lady who died. I am not a nurse, although I have seriously considered the profession. The daughter sounds like a nightmare in your recent tale. Death is too good for some people, and I think she fits in that catagory. Have you considered covering her in Kerosene and asking her to leave before you light a match? Not PC but it could have the desired effect. Obviously wish the best for your neice.
