Dear Diary Tuesday...

Well, we finally got Mom home last night. It got to the point that if they had not let us bring her home, I am pretty sure she would have pulled out all the tubing and stuff and WALKED home. Unfortunately, it was pretty late when we got home and she was absolutely exhausted, so all I really got to do was get her into her pj's and put her to bed.

This morning I called and talked to her but she was a little incoherent....not as bad as what she was when we first took her down to the ER, but still not completely alert. Thankfully after she had something to eat and was getting ready to go to the doctor, she was doing much, much better. I am keeping my fingers crossed that she will continue to get stronger and more mentally alert.

Oh, and all of my love, energy and prayers are with Shane and his family at this time. I love you my friend!!!

Dear Diary Monday...

oh GAWD the last three weeks have been HELL! After getting my Daddy out of the hospital due to an emergency surgery and all of his issues, then my Mom goes into the hospital this last Saturday and is still there! She has pneumonia, a very bad bladder infection, and was so dehydrated that her organs started to fail. I have NEVER spent so much time at a hospital in my life....to the point that nurses recognized me and came to my Mom's room just to chat and see how my Dad is doing. Too much. I actually started emotionally "shutting down" on Saturday and the lack of sleep I have gotten the last three weeks would probably kill most people.....thankfully since I have insomnia I am able to function on very little sleep after years of experience.

All I can say is thank the GODDESS for the amazing emotional support I get from my friends...and believe this or not, my family! My friends have been a life-saver these last three weeks....and I am not using that term loosely. Without the shoulders to lean on and the ears to bend, I don't know where I would have been. And Dylan, let's just say that I won the lottery when he and I got together. He has been absolutely amazing and perfect in his helping out with everything.

Okay, wish me luck. I am hoping I can get Mom out of the hospital today and maybe, just MAYBE get some sleep!
