My mother-in-law is in the hospital. She has been having pain and numbness in her leg for months, to the point where she has been walking with a cane and going for regular physical therapy sessions. However, after a new physical therapist did a massage last week, her symptoms grew so much worse that she went to the hospital yesterday.
It's so frustrating to see that she's going through these symptoms all these months and no one has determined how to provide relief yet. I hope to heck they figure out what to do to knock out these symptoms once and for all. Nobody should have to go through this, particularly not someone nice like her.
Mark is taking a half day today so we can go visit her. He originally thought to go after work, but making that drive during the evening rush hour would probably leave us with very limited time for a visit. I don't know what that hospital's visiting hours are, but most hospitals I've seen tend to end their hours at 8 or 8:30. It wouldn't be good if we spent more time on the commute there and back than we were able to spend actually visiting. So I'm glad we're going up there this afternoon, instead of waiting until the evening.
