don't take this the wrong way, buuuut, i kind of love when a member of my family is in the hospital. here's why: 1. they are there to get better! and 2. when someone has a brush with sickness i feel like it brings out the best in everybody else. i just love how everybody bands together and gets along. gramma dowd was in the hospital for the weekend because she got salmonella poisoning from some cross-contamination on a slice of costco pizza and she was sick for a couple of days and lost so many fluids that she passed out in the bathroom in the middle of the night and bonked her head pretttty good. she didn't have a concussion, but they rehydrated her at the hospital and they said that the symptoms of the salmonella will go away after a couple of days. she will take a couple of weeks to get all of her strength back, and she has a pretty sick shiner from hitting her head, but other than that she will be just fine!
