sick feets

This seems to be the best way to let my friends and family know where I am - which would be UTMB Hospital in Galveston. Briefly, I contracted a cold while working on a sand sculpture project in Houston , drove to Galveston to work on another project but the cold dropped into my lungs and set off a truly nasty asthma event and here I am in a little pink room with lots of holes in my arms and an oxygen tank attached to my nose. The good news is that I have my laptop and the hospital offers a wireless connection which I am able to log into.

Many thanks to the SoBs for taking me into emergency when I was obviously in great distress but unsure what to do. Christy and Glo got my rental car back to Houston, where Christy is hopefully flying out of today so she can cover the sandcastle lessons Amazin' and I both had booked. Amazin' himself is camping out in his van here in Galveston ready to drive me home when I get discharged.
Fred is holding down Fort Feet and the critters therein.

My South Padre Island family has come through for me in ways I had never hoped to have to ask them to. Lucky me, hey?

Update 1 PM: I am waiting for my discharge papers and with any luck Amazin' and I will be home at not too late an hour tonight.

Asthma attacks are scary! Thomas and I wish the best and get well soon. It's very cool the hospital has wireless! We are thinking of you.

I talked with Amazing about 1 or 2 and he said he was getting SF, and would be home sometime later this evening.

Note to SF: Port Isabel Pharmacy is closing tomorrow, with some records being shifted to (you're prolly not ready for this) WALMART. Be sure to get the straight skinny from Darrell!
