Multiple Sclerosis, Raindrop Continues, Wife Hopitalized, and Kids On Probation

The boy bowls in a adult youth league here in town, his one buddy is 21, so he fills the adult part, the boy is the youth since he's 17. He bowled a 647 set,he said it looked like he was pulling away from the other teams. I wanted to go watch, it was pretty close to home, but I wasn't feeling up to speed from my raindrop session and chose not to attend, just didn't feel that great. I got a call from the wife's friends, she was out to dinner with them and passed out. She has done this a couple of times over the years, her blood pressure crashes, and out she goes. They took her in ambulance to the local hospital, checked her out and then sent her on her way.

It's like anything else in life, when it happens to you, it scarier than when it happens to someone else. She apologized for dragging me out of the house. The girl already had taken her brother to bowling, so I headed up to the hospital to take care of my baby. She is short of sleep, too much caffeine, and not eating a great diet. We told the doctor that we had started the raindrop therapy, was it possible the wife was having a reaction to that. She laughed and said no, the herbs probably couldn't hurt her. I don't think the doc feels too comfy with the idea of alternative medicine.

Maybe you have to be at a certain point in life to open up to what some may say in unconventional? I don't think there is anything left for me to try from western medicine, why wouldn't I go off the path and try something new? We are glad we are doing it, and I'm sure I will see a benefit, it just may take a few times to see it. The kids were absolutely no help tonight, I did the dishes when we got home, and vented a little steam about what we should have come home to. Family meeting tomorrow to go over new responsibility for each of us, Mom needs a break.

Andy - I'm wondering now who is the cranky one! :-)

Glad your wife's hospitalization was a trip to the ER only. Hope your family meeting yields more support from the kids.

Thanks Cranky, it's not that the kids aren't supportive, they will do anything we ask, if we ask!

Thanks Slammer, I think everything is OK, it happened once at Gibby's, but that was 10 years ago.
