how NOT to spend Satuday night...

... in the Emergency Room.
Wife woke up Saturday morning with 102 temp...
In year 8 of Stage IV breast cancer, on chemo... when her temp is elevated, I get concerned...called on-call folks; advised to wait.

Fever broke at noon.

... Took her temp again at 10:30 p.m.: 103!
Called on-call folks again.
Doc recommended the ER... we got there at midnight; I hung around till 4 a.m., when they FINALLY started pumping IV antibiotics into her.
X-rays show pneumonia.

She's been admitted today.

Just in case you didn't know: CANCER SUCKS!
