Just wanted to post an update to say my mom is doing better. She made it through the surgery just fine, but she had to stay a couple of days in the hospital for recovery. The doctors and nurses wanted to keep an eye on her, since she had a bit of trouble during recovery due to her diabetes.
She is home now and I am her nurse. My mom thinks me being her “nursey” is hilarious. lol. I am just glad she is home and safe now. I feel bad for her though, because she looks to be in a lot of pain. I do know how she feels though, since I had the same surgery, but they gave her lots of Vicodin so I am sure she will be fine.
I am feeling a bit odd though. Earlier, I had a bit of a breakdown on the phone with one of my younger sisters. I just feel like I am so unprepared for things. This health issue with my mom happened so fast and was just….scary. I guess, I am just scared.
I can’t really talk or type I am so upset. My mom had to go to the emergency room because she was having pains really bad in her side. I so scared for her.
ETA: My family and I just found out that it is her gallbladder and that she has to have emergency surgery. I am so scared. I am crying and feel so alone. My youngest sister is in New Jersey, my other younger sister is in Vegas and my oldest sister is hours away, but she doesn’t sound very concerned. I do have my Aunt here. She has been wonderful. She has been by my moms side the whole time and has helped me. I really can’t express how much of a rock she has been. And if she wasn’t here with my mom and me, I don’t know what I would do.
But still, I can’t live without my mom. She is my best friend and helps take care of me. That may sound stupid for someone that is 30 years old, but is the truth. If something happens to her, I don’t want to live anymore. I just don’t. I don’t think I can. I feel like screaming, but I have to act strong, because my youngest sister is upset and crying and is trying to get a flight back home.
