When it Rains it Pours...

My sweet son has been with me all week, leaving his wife and seven year old daughter in Washington State for a week. Normally this would not be a problem as Amy is quite used to handling things without him, he was in the Navy for quite some time and she became quite self sufficient. Matthew leaves for home tomorrow but today Amy, had severe stomach pains and went to a clinic where they promptly sent her to the hospital thinking it could be her appendix. She has to have a cat scan to see. Thankfully she has great friends that are taking care of my granddaughter and she and Matthew have been able to stay in contact by cell phones but I feel so bad for her that she is all alone there facing this.
I kidded her and told her she didn't have to take her sympathy for me this far. We've not gotten word yet but we are hoping it isn't anything too serious and I hope she doesn't have to face surgery alone. I wish I could be there with her right now. Hospitals and needles scare her.
I know my son is worried and I feel so helpless to help them. Hopefully all will be well and tomorrow he'll be back safe and sound with his family.
I can't tell you how much I've appreciated him being here with me this week. I love him and his wife and daughter so much and am so proud of all of them.
On another note, I am finally home in my own house with my little dog and it feels so good.
Today is two weeks since my operation and although I have to take it easy, I've not had to take pain meds for about a week. I'm so glad of that.
I have four more weeks to recover before I have to go back to work. We'll see how that goes.

Note: we just got word Amy is going into surgery to have her appendix out. Laproscopic at least, thank goodness, but she is alone. Matthew will not get home until late tomorrow night.

Oh how awful! I HATE it when things like this happen. Poor Amy. This is what I thought might be my issue today. I had severe stomach pain and was just about to take myself to the hospital when things slowly began getting better. I hate hospitals too and no longer having a husband, I was feeling freaked out.

i'm glad that your son has been able to care for you and will now go and help Amy tomorrow. She'll be in my prayers.

Thank you Shirly and Suzie, we seem to be needing lots of prayers these days. Thanks for the kind words.
