Shoulda Stayed In Bed

I feel like I should have just stayed in bed this morning.

First, I had another of the coughing/gagging spells in the middle of the night that I get occasionally since the surgery, usually when it gets close to time when I need a new "opening procedure", so I didn't sleep well. When I woke up this morning, found a Post-it note from mom. She said she was going to the hospital to get the swelling in her right foot checked out again, since what they did last Thursday had no effect. After I got out of the shower, I discovered the internet was deader than a door nail. It finally came back up just a few minutes ago.

Finally, after the internet came back up, discovered a voicemail on the home phone from one of my cousins. Apparently Uncle Floyd (one of mom's brothers) is in the hospital. He had a biopsy, they "think" he might have liver cancer.

I WOULD slither back into bed, but, since I did a lot of sweating the past couple of nights, my bed linens are currently in the washing machine (needed something to do while internet was down).

EDIT: Mom is back from the hospital walk-in clinic. Still no real answer what is causing the foot swelling. They wrapped it again, took some blood, and told her to keep the foot elevated as much as possible. They will call if they find anything in the blood test.

EDIT 2: Hospital called Mom, said it was gout. They called in a new prescription for her, and told her to stop taking what they prescribed her at the emergency room last Thursday evening. Also told her to not take anything like Tylenol, Advil, etc. while taking the medicine.
