Merry Christmas at the Hospital

So we were sitting in the waiting room and a woman pipes up "Merry Christmas everybody! Santa just dropped some gifts off 6 minutes ago". It was a very nice bit of levity in what was a nightmare of a night. And what a night! My mom, over for a visit, gets pneumonia and manifests badly right on Christmas Eve. We got home (my father and I) after she was admitted and her paperwork was done some time past 4AM. Start to finish, ambulance call to back home was 5 hours.

Now that she has appropriate antibiotics running through her, she's lost the blue lips and is lucid once again. Now we have to figure out why the darn thing presented so atypically. There are lots of theories but for those who got the news over the phone, your prayers and well wishes have been very much appreciated.
