I don't know how much you all remember of previous post too tired to rehash.......she did come home tuesday.......well she is weak, sick to stomach and running a fever......
Please pray for here, we don't have to take her in yet to the ER which is good because we all need some sleep, pray for this to pass.
Goodnight all and thanks.

Hi KellieJo!

I'm sorry you're having to endure such hard times. It only adds to the pain. I don't remember all of the details of your MIL but at some level that's not as important as the fact that you need help. I will say prayers for you and your family and hope that you get some relief from your trials.

Warm Hugs,
If you're going through hell, keep going.

(((( Kelliejo ))))

I've just been in the ER myself tonight. I know it is draining. But if she's really sick - at least they can quickly put her right again. If she is elderly, sick to her stomach and running a fever, she needs medical intervention. Dehydration comes too quick - I know - it hit me twice in two weeks. Dangerous stuff.

Please take extra good care of yourself. I know this is more stress and exertion than you should be handling with your own health. I just hope somehow you can get some relief and help with this all.

So sorry you're going through this.  Will be praying for MIL to get well and for you and the rest of your family who are going through this with her.

Sending gentle hugs, prayers for your MIL, you and your family. Be careful not to
overdo, take time for yourself to unwind. I know that you have been in the past
your MIL's main caregiver and this must be very hard for you. Take Care.

It's so difficult to take care of elderly loved ones and you are doing the very best for her.  If she she continues being so ill, don't hesitate taking her to the hospital.  It sounds like she was released too soon as it is. 
I'll be praying for her and for you!  Take care of yourself.

She is not running a temp today, praise God but I also know when she has health issues she will spike fevers at night.

Bad news, we all been sick in the house, I have bronchitis I have tried to not to infect her due to her WBC........well she isn't moving air in her lower left lung according to the home health nurse that is new as of last week. I'm waiting for a call from the nurse to see if the doctor wants to see her earlier.

Thanks for the prayers.......((hugs))
