I am a little nervous
      #183075 - 03/29/06 11:25 AM

I had to go for my bloodwork today but I am so nervous. I tried to keep my spirits up but my mother in law is in the hospital again. She had congestive heart failure for the second time in two months aside from already having open heart surgery and a pacemaker and more stents then you can count. I wanted to go and kill her this morning because she called at 5:00am to complain to my husband not thinking he would be nervous when he heard the phone ring. I know it is going to happen eventually and it is not like I even get along with her all that well. I am more afraid for my husband . He has already lost his father to congestive heart failure, his older brother to a fire, his 1 sister lives in Fl and speakes to no one, his other sister barely talks to anyone, his other brother died from HIV about 17 years ago and the only one he really has left is his autistic brother.
We think we have been delt a crappy hand....I can keep going. Both his grandparents(mom side) died when she was 13, within 6 months of each other. I know it is crazy. I am just so worried if something happens to his mother he will have nobody left in his family. He is such a good guy even though I crack on him He has been so good to me and the kids.
Sorry, anyway, I am so nervous this has affected my bloodwork. I am just going crazy all over. Well, I just had to vent sorry.

dont be sorry for needing to get things off your chest.......

i hope all is well with your labs, as i am sure they will be. as for your mom in law, death is all a part of life. in fact it is the only guarantee in life........ i know he has been dealt a shitty hand when it comes to the family thing, but what you are forgetting is that he still haves you. so when you think he has no one, remember he has SOMEONE.

Fran, you know what stood out to me in your post? You are afraid he will have no one left...when he will be bless because he has you and you are a very wonderful person. Not everyone is so lucky! I hope your labs bring you some peace...you have my prayers.

Fran, take it easy.. We all loose loved ones. Thats the nature of life.. Make the most out of something that you have absolutely no control over. Be there for your husband. As far as you numbers, it may make your cd4 dip but your percentages will hold fast.. Thats the comfort in your labs.. Certainly let your specialist know that you are having a bit of a day but you will be fine. How about a Paxil Px?? hmmmm... We cant worry about everything.. However I do pretty well on that aspect...

Love you Fran... Big HUG.. Keep sharing!

Love

Not true about him not having anyone...he has YOU!!! And you two are in it for the long haul. I couldn't think of a better person I would want by my side if I were him. Life is short, grasp and enjoy each and every moment...and never be afraid to tell someone you love them. Hey fran...I love you!!! Your family is in my prayers......

Fran your labs will be okay. We all have wonky days when it's time to go to the doctor. Your hubby has you and the kids. Like I said the CHF is degenerative...she won;t get any better. My grammy died from it and my hubby had it too. Your hubby won't be alone. You and the kids are his family. You will be each others strength to get thru anything that come your way. Sweetie I do know what it like to want to stay under the covers cause you don't know what the world will have waiting for you. But sometimes if you stay under there you won't be able to see the sunrise. With each new day comes a new opportunity. Love your husband, embrace each new day with him by your side.
