Here we go again

I'm home.
Master is not.
They've admitted Him to the hospital and will be administering IV fluids.
He was feeling some better when I left, but surely not as well as we'd hoped He would be by now.
I'm going to try and get a bit of a nap. I am simply fried from lack of sleep.
His clothes are in the washer, and when they are dried and ready to go, I'll gather up the things He will need and head back.
This was the thing I dreaded -- that Master and T might end up in two places, and I'd not be able to be around for them both. Fortunately, T's mom will be down this afternoon, and so perhaps there'll be a bit of coverage at that point.

Meanwhile, I am trying to stay calm. This is a bump. The doctor is taking a very serious, very conservative approach, but then that is likely why his mortality rates for this surgery are so much lower than most other surgeons. He'll treat whatever this is as aggressively as possible, and soon Master will be home and feeling better each day.

You must have been posting this lovely one as I was leaving a comment on T's posting. I'm trying to refrain from all the usual things we all say about Tom 'being in the best place' and for you and T to 'try not to worry too much' and yet failing because they DO seem the right thing to say.

You've all had incredible faith in your surgeons...hang onto that, try to get a little rest and know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

love and hugs xxx

My best wishes go out to all of you. Hang in there and my best hopes that this is just a small bump on the road to health.
