Mother's been rushed to hospital this morning. Severe abdomin pain. Gotta stay here as dogs can't be left alone, so I have to deal with phoning the Hospital and dealing with morons who cannot tell me anything useful for an hour until I finally got hold of someone with some sense.
Things seem to be improving, she's comfortable and going for X-rays (routine) to rule the more serious stuff out.
Was told to ring back in an hour, if things are still bad will head down then and the neighbours can deal with squealing dogs for hours on end (they hate being left alone lol)
