Good ol' Ween

Today I'm blogging on Jen's behalf since she's spending the night in a really expensive hotel near Picnic Point. Yesterday, she had a headache all day that got worse into the evening, when she developed a fever. A phone call to the on call oncologist confirmed that she'd need to go in to the ER. After some tests, she was admitted and spent the night. This morning, the suspicion was that she had meningitis...but that has since been discounted. Thankfully. She spent a lot of time sleeping today, at least when she wasn't being poked and prodded by various hospital staff, and the rest seemed to help a lot. She is being observed for the evening and at last report was doing much better. Olive and I hope for her return home tomorrow. Olive is also a little concerned since her dad's past outfit choices for her have been...unorthodox. My argument is that she should be a trendsetter, not a boring old sheep following the crowd.

In any case, all of this worrying about meningitis means there's only one thing to do - play the appropriate Ween song.



Thanks Julie for all your help last night and today!

The best two words of today,"Not meningitis".
Great song choice especially accompanied by the boobs. The irony of it all!
Thanks a bunch for posting the good news allowing me and many other worry warts a better night's sleep.
Olive is a fashionista and she knows it!

Definitley a sense of relief that she doesn't have meningitis and that she's feeling a bit better. I'd offer to help with something this week, but I'm in Florida...so let Mia know if there's anything she can do to help ;-)
