Absolute Rubbish Weekend

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm really having a stressful weekend. My sister was supposed to be going on holiday with her daughter (my niece) today but I had a phone call to say that my niece was in hospital with a suspected stroke (she's only 40, has never smoked, isn't overweight, no blood pressure problems and takes a reasonable amount of exercise). Anyway the hospital discharged her with asprin and some other stroke drugs and she's gone on holiday late this afternoon to Pembrokeshire. I'm worried sick. If it was me I wouldn't have gone. To top it all, my cousin has been diagnosed with a brain tumour and has been given 2 months to live. I'm off to the US at the beginning of September for 3 weeks but I really feel I should be here. We are taking my mother-in-law and as she is 81 it might possibly the last time she can visit her younger son (he moved to the US 35 years ago). I feel I am being pulled all ways. Whisky bottle her I come :D If I didn't laugh I would cry.

    sorry to hear you're having such a rubbish time, can't blame you for having a tipple

    i hope you're neice recovers from her stroke, the time away may do her good, a bit of a mood lifter and at least shes still in this country should she need some more medical care

    you're situation is difficult and seems to be a case of bad timing but don't forget we are here when the chips are down - not just for tablet related support smile *hugs*

    It's easy to say I know but try not to worry about things you can't change.

    Take care of yourself and you'll be stronger to help others

    Hope things get better for you soon x
