New Medical Update on Hugh

Hey, Y'all,
I just talked with Imazo and found out some new information on Hugh, and I knew there were those of you who would be wanting to know.

Hugh was having difficulty breathing last night, so they started giving him oxygen, and he continues to be on that. They have also been giving him anti-coagulant injections in his tummy to prevent blood clots from forming. He also has the white anti-blood clot elastic stockings on his feet and legs. (He had those yesterday, but I forgot to report that).

Imazo tells me that the kidney doctor came in this morning and told her that Hugh would be there at least till Wednesday till they could determine what is going on and what to do about it. I will not be going in tomorrow, but I will go back on Tuesday to visit, depending on the weather.

However, I will be calling a couple of times a day to keep a check on him tomorrow.

I have made my fried pies for tomorrow, (actually, they are baked, not fried), and will be cleaning the kitchen after while, after I rest a little. I used a larger circle this time than the biscuit cutter, and it took less time to make the pies. I baked them at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. I put them on a large pizza pan (on aluminum foil, sprayed the aluminum foil with buttery spray, then sprayed the top of each pie with the buttery spray) and then cooked baked them.

Gramps went back to bed for a while this afternoon. He had to catch up on the sleep he lost by getting up at 9:30 this morning. Ha.

Well, I reckon that is it for this evening. More tomorrow. This is Blabbn' Grammy signing off (again) for the day. Love to all of you, and may you each have a peaceful night's sleep. Bye for now.

I'm still praying for your brother and for you and your Dear Hubby! My mama used to make the best fried pies. I need to let her know that it's about time we had some more of them!!

Your baked pies sound so goooood! I love fruit pies anyway. I hope Hugh continues to improve and will be able to come home on Wednesday.
We will keep our fingers crossed for that. I am sure your neighbors will enjoy coming for dinner and sampling all your good food.

Hi , I do hope your brother makes good progress, it must be very worrying for you. Those pies sounds scrumpous,(excuse the spelling). Until the next time.
Take care both yourself and husband.

Fried pies sound good on this snowy day. I made a blackberry cobbler yesterday.
