She's a hypochondriac. She always has some sort of virus or something coming on or is getting over something or needs physical therapy for something.
Anyway, one day she had a fever. She couldn't come visit because she didn't want to get the baby sick. I asked her how high it was. She said she didn't have it right now "it comes and goes". So, this went on for a couple of days. Finally, I said, "Mom, you're not sick; you're having hot flashes." Thank the pharmaceutical giants and Italian nuns for Premarin because my mom needs hormone replacement therpay.
