Cindy….

How does one thing lead into another and another and another and not even be related? On Sunday we took Cindy to the ER because she fell and hit her head and was having neck, back and muscle spasms in her arm. On Monday she really looked good, Tuesday she couldn’t understand anything and Tuesday evening they put her in ICU because her ammonia levels rose beyond dangerous. It’s from her diabetes and because she wasn’t feeling good had spiked up at 600 and when they got it down she sorta ferments in the belly and the ammonia levels rise. They got that fixed and then next thing we know she’s throwing up and passing blood and they rush her to the cities to the UofM. So we hop in the suburban and get our butts down there (I took my mama and daddy down) and we sit there for 6 hours waiting and waiting to see if they can find out what’s up. We answer more question that I even thought I knew about Cindy and her medical history and such and when we left (we came home, motels and such are way beyond our price limits plus we all have animals that need our attention so easier to drive home and head out again in an hour) they still have more cats cans, MRI’s, surgeons on call, tests, x-rays to do to find out what is wrong with her. UGH!!!! Cindy has gone through so much and it looks like there’s much more to go through. And my parents, I just can’t imagine going to bed at night and not knowing if you’ll have one or two daughters in the morning. And me, the stress of trying to handle it all and take care of mama and daddy and still do things I have to do. I took today off to take them down but I can’t tomorrow, I can’t go another day without pay so am going to drive bus tomorrow and we’ll drive the next 290 miles again on Saturday. But right now, I day at a time. Really first some breakfast. We don’t eat while down there so will pack a lunch for us all and try and be home by 9-10 tonight so a big breakfast is needed however it’s really hard to eat when life is up in the air.

I just wanted to update you on what’s what and ask you to keep praying for Cindy and the family. We aren’t sure what to expect when we get down there, yes we can call but the doctors and nurses said they won’t know anything until noon time at the earliest so might as well just talk to them in person and if they need more permission for whatever or something had happened they would of called me or daddy.

Thank you my friends.

blessingsWe’re hoping for a few of these today!

I hope everything is going well and I hope you're able to take care of yourself. You can't help anyone if you're not well first. Good luck!
