Today dad had another fall. I think it was his fifth in the last 2 weeks ish. He also tried to go out for a smoke without his coat on, but today was -25 Celsius with the windchill (-13 F).

So that's not good, and I don't think we can leave him alone any more. Which means rearranging my shifts over the next few weeks and basically only working evenings and weekends. Luckily my work is pretty understanding and accommodating and one of my coworkers was happy for all the extra hours. But it blows.

My dad is having another surgery soon. Without it, he will die. He is going in extremely compromised.

I was so focused on feeling like crepe today with a stupid cold and I took sleepy medicine so my mom went on her own today. I let her go on her own today and she had to deal with this on her own. He was critical but stable last night and I was so focused on my cold and needing to get grades in tomorrow.

I'm at the hospital now, waiting. I need to hold together for my mom

Oh Lavawitch, I am so very very very sorry to hear that.

You and your family, especially your Dad, are in our thoughts and prayers. I hope the surgery goes well and that he gets better soon. And I hope you can take care of yourself as well. Big hugs to you <3

I'm sorry to post there here. I don't have any other support system. I have to be support for my mom. She doesn't have anybody either.

Please don't feel sorry! We're all here for you.

I feel like the PPK is amazing when you're in a hospital - when L was in the hospital over a weekend and when my mom was dying, I was on the PPK the whole time, and got so much support and kindness.

LW, you & your family (especially your dad!) will be in my thoughts. Don't be sorry for posting in this thread about the awful shiitake that is going on in your life, that's pretty much exactly what it's for.

Don't ever be sorry for reaching out for support, lw. Everyone needs a shoulder sometimes. I'm sorry that you and your folks are going through this; your dad will be in my thoughts.

It's ok. Couldn't make a word today if I tried. I'm just kind of numb.

LW I really hope you get good news soon, I'm sorry you guys are going through all this stress and uncertainty.

I've been feeling bad about monopolizing this thread lately too, and I don't blame you for coming here to get it all out. I have people in my life I can talk to, but my approach is very frank and matter of fact, and I'm not doing well talking about feelings and whatnot.
