It is early yet, but I think today will be a good day. No lab work or chemo today. Poppa’s legs are very swollen. I am going to get him some ted hose and a thermometer today. Aaliyah and Alex are germ magnets, coughing and snotting all over the place. I even woke up with a sore throat this morning. I am afraid of him catching a cold from us. On a good note, Poppa says he has more energy and actually looks good from the waist up. He plans on going back to Dominican and tutoring today.
I’m feeling very stressed right now, but it’s not related to my dad. My oldest daughter is pregnant and my husband just kicked her out of the house. I am not happy about this. I feel like I am being pulled in a hundred different directions. Trying to be a good wife, mother, daughter, nurse ect. I don’t feel like I’m succeeding in any of these roles. Trying to keep peace in a blended home is not easy, but that is yet another blog.
My fifth wedding anniversary is on May 5th, and I don’t feel like celebrating it anymore. I have to make sure my daughter and soon to be grandson are okay. Sydney, 17, is hell on wheels and has made one bad decision after another, yet I am still her mother and I love her. I am going to make sure she is safe. I have to encourage her to be a better person. I was making progress, now I must start over. Life sucks!!!!!!
1130 am Poppa is going to the hospital, after he runs some errands. He had some blood in his stool today. He doesn’t seem worried but I made him call his doctor’s office who told him to come to the ER. Of course nurse Lexi is worried because he just received 7 pints of blood two weeks ago. I’ll keep you posted.
1720 Just got off the phone with Sandy a nurse I work with in the ER. She is taking care of Poppa today. He is being admitted and receiving another blood transfusion. He has to have another colonoscopy. he is not going to be happy.
1930 I just got off the phone with my dad. The surgery that I wanted them to do two weeks ago is scheduled for tomorrow. I will be praying all night that the surgery is successful and he has a speedy recovery. I am praying for Jehovah to guide the surgeons hands.
