We've been at the St. Paul ER since 3:20 this afternoon. The concern is that Steve could have pnuemonia or a blood clot in his lungs.

Dr. M's office told us to come here because his blood oxegyn level is 93 and he has slight wheezing. He's at a high risk for pnuemonia and clots because of his condition.

They drew blood around 6 p.m. and took chest X-rays shortly after. He's lucky to have a room -- some patients are on beds in hallways. The flu has hit Dallas hard.

I'll update when we know more.

Just text paged you. Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Hopefully it won't be anything too big and you will be sent home soon. Call if you need anything at all. Will check with you on phone tomorrow. Not sure you are awake at this time. Hope all is resolved.
Praying for a quick recovery from this event for you.
