On my way to the T from her place, I discovered I had voicemail from my stepfather. Turns out my mother went into the hospital today. She’d been ill for quite a while and (like me) trying to deal with getting a new PCP. Today she finally got to see somebody and he promptly admitted her with “dyspnea and tachycardia. After a chest X-ray, they decided that she might have pneumonia or pleurisy. She’s doing much better since she’s been in the hospital. I’m going to try calling her tomorrow during the day.
(Speaking of doctors, I might have a consultation with a sleep specialist as early as Friday, depending whether the insurance referral paperwork can get processed in time. I hope so, because the next appointment available after that is mid-October.)
