Dad had a bad case of the shakes this afternoon - as in, 1 hour of uncontrollable, full-body shivering. He's been rather less than 100% the last few days, but the shaking freaked me out.

Called Uncle Doctor #1 for a phone diagnosis, he said "get him to hospital", so we got him to emergency.

After 2 hours of waiting to see a doctor, 2 hours of waiting for results to come back, 1 hour of double-checking the results, he's been admitted overnight for observation. Slightly elevated inflammation levels in his bloodwork.

I am le tired, because I was the responsible adult for the afternoon, which involved:
a) keeping my stepmother informed
b) keeping my dad from walking out
c) keeping assorted other parties informed
d) 5 hours of waiting

And now we have stepmother, stepbrother, and step-aunt staying at our place overnight, so the house is pretty much FULL UP in that way which we were trying to avoid by putting dad and the steps in B2's apartment, and having B2 stay here.

Finally, I have an appointment with the dentist tomorrow to discuss the swelling in the gum. Let's hope he listens...
