Thank you all, Karen your right, but the children are leaving on Saturday that is why I am the one that has been told to stay until the daughter gets back in 3 days...............
I will not be letting her go. Bada Bing. Her Mother needs her. She is going to find out Auntie has a spine after all.
Why is it when you give so much people just assume and take advantage?
Trying to remember all my advice to others...........
I really just need hugs and prayers right now.
Love to all
It sounds like you have a lot going on right now & I am sorry that you aren't feeling too good! I hope that all goes well with your sisters surgery, I am thinking about you both.
Kitt: I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. You are such a beautiful and caring person. Your sister and her family unfortunately do not realize how lucky they are to have you.
Please be careful in tapering off of the antidepressants. It sounds like now is definately the time that you need to have the extra help they can offer to you.
Keeping your niece around sounds like a good idea. She needs to have some accountability. I don't know how old both your nieces are, but could you have someone like your daughters (if they live close enough) drop by and help with them too? Also, is your sister married? Couldn't and shouldn't her spouse be at the hospital with her as well?
I'm sure you have already thought about all of this. You are just such a wonderful person that I hate to see you pushed around and nervous because of it. Hang in there!
Kitt: I know I already posted yesterday, but I wanted to let you know that I am still thinking of you. Despite any time differences here I know you are at the hospital right now with your sister and I am saying prayers for you.
You are the kindest, gentlest and one of the most loyal people I have had the pleasure of getting to know here on Healing Well. I also know that even though you may question it on occasion, you are also a very strong person and I have faith that you will be able to handle this.
Good Morning Dear Family,
I am fine, good, happy and most of all my sister is alive and doing very well. Surgery went extremely well and no new cancer found on any other organs so it was good news. Depending on the pathology reports she may need more chemo............so far the outcome is good.
I am tired, couple hours sleep in last 48 hours but I am going home for tonight. Also I have not told my sister but did tell her daughter (my niece) that I cannot come up on Sunday and stay for 72 hours straight as the caregiver. I have to work on Tuesday so I will be practicing my assertiveness.........I will come and visit daily except when I work.
I am so grateful for all of my HealingWell Family that I want to share with you I will be making a donation to HW in honor of you, my support family of friends and peers.
You are the best and I am so very blessed to have you in my life.
Karen, I know you have been covering.........you are a gem.
I am dragging but with your help I keep going.............like the Energizier Bunny. We continue to need the prayers, that is all my sister asks for is prayers.
My sister took a turn for the worse early Saturday Morning as she developed bleeding into her mastectomy site and was rushed back to surgery at 4:30 A.M. Her hemoglobin dropped to 7.9 and her BP was in the 70's (systolic). She developed breathing problems and is now in Surgical ICU.
She started to have hallucinations last night around Midnight. I will be going back up to the hospital in a bit but wanted to let you know where we are at and one more time ask for prayers.
I am so sorry I am MIA...........I want to be here with all of you.
Thank you to all.
