    Its time for my MELTDOWN!! [​IMG]
    As some of you know....back in March, my oldest sons wife lost her baby. She was only 5 months or so along, but still very painfull. they are in OKC, and we are in Indiana....so I felt totally useless. I could not be there to help them or comfort them. Then in april, Easter Sunday we lost another grandbaby. She was 7 1/2 months pregnant. This was to be our first grand daughter... Her funeral had to be postponed, because we ALMOST lost her momma to Eclampsia. Mother and father(my 3rd son) are doing better now.
    Well...last week, my "baby" sister( she is 43 yrs young) was admited in the hospital in Loiuville KY. She has Pneumonia in her left lung. They had to drain fluids from around her lung. They drained 1/2 litre of amber fluid. The Dr said NOT cancer [​IMG] but not sure yet why the amber color. Waiting on tests now. Draining the fluids created an air pocket(cant remember what they called it) but very painfull. She has been on Morphine shots for 2 days now. She also has blood clots in her legs. So wearing compression stockings to try and stop them from moveing. She is on 3 blood thinners, and 3 antibiotics. NOW they say her Kidneys are not functioning properly. More tests. I feel so bad for her, I cant help her....she is my baby sister.
    Yesterday, I found out my oldest brother( only brother living) was admitted into the hospital..in OHIO. He had a nervous breakdown. [​IMG] This morning, my mother was admited into the hospital, here in Indiana. She has been sick for some time now. Congestive heart failure, COPD, and has gone from 150 pounds to 80 pounds in 6 months. They can not operate on her heart, because of the COPD. She NOW has an upper respritory infection, which is causeing pressure on her heart. When she was admitted this morning her heart rate was 175-180. They was able to get it down with meds, but then her blood pressure bottomed out. just under 60. [​IMG]
    3 Family members....3 states...and I am loseing my mind!! So, I wont be able to get on here much for a while...please pray for my family members...I WILL BE FINE....I have another sister that is helping care for the youngest sister...and I am mostly here with Mother. Thanks in advance everyone...I hope I will be able to get on once in a while...just to relax for a few.
