Crazy two days here.

I had my annual cancer check up along with the bi-annual tumor marker check and am thrilled to share that all is well!

Did some grocery shopping on the way home and got Jeremiah home just in time for us to get all the groceries inside and the dog out before the thunder started to roll along with warnings of hail and tornadoes. There was a touchdown in Ulster, PA...not too far from here...blew down a few buildings.

Today I got to work and Pete called saying he thought the cellulitis was back so I drove home and off to the ER we went (after calling the doctor). He has been admitted to the hospital...white blood cell count is rising and lactic acid is rising at a very fast rate. He's got lots of saline running and 2 antibiotics by IV. The smallish red spot from this morning now takes up most of his lower leg...lots of swelling...looking and feeling like plastic. They aren't sure of the cause. We won't know much more until 24 hours passes. He has a temperature, the chills and exhaustion.

Then the weather...tornado warnings in the area. The schools held the children until the threat passed. One touched down along Rte. 660 between Mansfield and Wellsboro, PA knocked down a shed where 8 people were taking shelter.

I have a must attend event tomorrow morning and then I'm headed to the hospital for the day. I'm thankful for laptops so I can work while Pete sleeps. I'd stay at the office but I can't concentrate knowing that Pete is in the hospital AND my supervisor is great about it all.
