Slight change of plans

I didn't get out to my brother's to share holiday cheer with the family today. Instead, I spent the time with Ericka in the hospital.

When she started going to the pool this morning, she had a lot of trouble breathing and what is most likely a blocked duct in her breast was giving her a lot of pain. Her and her driver talked it over and she got a ride to the hospital. The breating difficulty was nothing new, but they decided to admit her for that. So by the time I heard about all this, she was being treated for that, but not for the duct thing that was causing all her pain.

She likely will be there for some time tomorrow but should be home before Monday. The one worrisome detail is that the doctor that examined her this afternoon noticed a heart murmur that wasn't there before. It's likely that her blood pressure is higher because they're pumping her full of fluids and she's been stressed out, but they want to do an echocardiogram to check things out.

I'm still on for Kieran's tonight, but am likely to be a bit tired while there, seeing as I've been up most of the morning and afternoon.
