It's inevitable. It's how things happen. It still sucks. [Sep. 9th, 2012|09:15 pm]
My mom is in the hospital. The doctors told my sister that Mom may not live through the night. She was on blood thinners that were making her blood too thin, but when they took her off the med, apparently her blood started clotting. They think that clots got in her lungs, caused her system to go acidic, and her organs started shutting down.

I am far away, but my sister is there with her. I have to get a bunch of work stuff straightened out tomorrow before I can even think about going out there.

I am at loose ends with fear and anxiety. At first I was sure she was going to die. Now I think she might make it. But it's almost terrifying to hope.

This is so hard, and I don't have words right now that would emcompass it and help you, but I'll say I'm here, and I am listening, and you are not alone.
I love you.

Sorry to hear this

I understand completely. I was on the other end. My father slipped and fell at his home on Tuesday, and was found on Thursday. His friend got him to the hospital, and I was the sibling who got to be there by his side. My brother is a bus driver, and was stationed in Metarie, Louisiana to facilitate any evacuations for Hurricane Isaac. My father passed on Friday, but my brother didn't get back into town until Monday morning. My heart goes out to you and your family.

Re: Sorry to hear this

Thank you. It's often easier to get through these things by talking about it. I hope talking helps you as much as it helps me.

Take heart and hope. A similar incident happened to my Ma not too long ago. It took a while but she recovered. I will pray for her and for you and your family.

My heart goes out to you - as someone recently said to me, be gentle with yourself. You will know the right thing to do as things go along.

*many, many hugs to you*

Arrrgh, I'm so sorry! ♥ I had the work situation with both my parents' deaths, and it's a hard row to hoe. I hope that you're able to concentrate and get the business at work sewn up quickly, so that you can be by your mother's side.

Having Mom be gravely ill is hard; I'll be sending you love and support. *hugs*
