2/8 Update: Gretchen’s mom was operated on last night to drain her knees and it went well. Gretchen got to talk to a lot of doctors and nurses yesterday.
My mother-in-law cut her finger in the kitchen and it got infected – and then the infection somehow travelled down to her knees where she has rheumatoid arthritis, so she went to the hospital yesterday. They may drain the infectious fluid from her knees. Her arthritis is getting worse. 😦
