I’ve been sitting here staring at my computer screen for a while, not sure how to put what I am feeling into words. I had planned to write about the “I Quit Sugar” program I joined a few days ago, because I was so excited about taking this step that I hope will help me get onto the path of living a much healthier life, but right now that just doesn’t even matter.
Instead I’m going to tell you what’s been going on in our lives recently. I can’t recall if I told you my sister is pregnant at the moment. She has had a lot of complications the last few weeks, her doctors thought that she was suffering with pre-eclampsia and until this morning she had been spending some time in hospital. We have been helping take care of her youngest daughter, and mum has been at my sisters home helping to care for her other children.
This morning I spoke to my sister and everything was great, she was on her way home to see her kids and we were so happy everything was fine with her health. When she arrived home, she found our mum very sick.
She called me very worried, mum was vomiting, she had a migraine and she could barely stand up. We pondered whether she had food poisoning, or if it was just a bad migraine (mum gets a lot of those), but decided my sister should call an ambulance, just in case.
Thank goodness we did, when the ambulance arrived they knew immediately that it was not a migraine. Tonight mum is the hospital, she has had a cerebral hemorrhage and is in a serious but stable condition. She is scheduled for surgery either tomorrow or the day after, depending how well doctors can get her blood pressure down.
The moment I got that call to tell me what was wrong, my heart sunk and I felt sick to my stomach. We just lost our dad 9 months ago, and now here we are, we could very possibly be facing a future without our mum as well.
I’m so worried about her, I’m so scared of what all of this means. I’m trying to stay positive, saying a thousand prayers. I don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring, but I am so hoping its something good for our family and not the worst.
