No bowl of cherries

Mom had a bad day Wednesday, and Dad said he was "run ragged" doing laundry and shopping for Depends. Mom had a bad night's sleep that got her started coughing. As we all know now, the coughing leads into the vomiting and diarrhea. She was also complaining that her "tongue felt wet". Dad says they are being very careful to keep her hydrated this time, and now have some anti-nausea suppositories since she can't keep the anti-nausea pills down. The Depends are "insurance" so she has the confidence to go to the doctor or take a walk. Things had improved some by the end of Wednesday, and she kept down Royal Anne cherries and jello.

Being old is the pits.
