Shannon, my sister, just called me. It's definitely pneumonia and Mom's definitely not being released from the hospital today since her doctor said she still sounds like "a one man band". She's getting pretty intensive care-- breathing treatments and prednazone and having her vitals taken every 2 hours. So, Mom's laying down, but she's not really sleeping. However, she wants Shannon to bring her stuff to wash and blow dry her hair when my sister visits this afternoon, and that's a good sign.
