ok I've had a VERY bad week and I'm getting really close to loosing it! any advise for coping? heres what happened: I take medical care of my 93yr old grandmother with severe dementia and she had an angina attack and had to be rushed to the hosp( due to her health issues she's been given 1 year to live) needless to say I ledfooted it from work to the hosp, then a while later my pregnate daughter showed up for support and soon was doubled over in pain they rushed her into a room across the er did some tests ( I was running between rooms in the cold hosp with no jacket) 6 hours later my grandma was ready to go home and my daughter had been told that she needed to follow up with her obgyn due to a "cyst" in her utras. and was sent home. friday I went to work in pain from the stress and cold of the night before and low and behold I lost my airway and had to be rushed tohthe hosp by ambalence from work ( a bit dramatac I thought) then tues my daughter was called by her obgyn and told that there was something wrong with the baby and to report to a high risk dr on wends and show up 1 hour before her appt for counceling. (SCARY!!!!!) we did and we got the shock of our lives. after tests the dr's determined that the baby ( a girl YIPPIE) has a cystic something or other (hysop baby) on her neck and that means that she either has downs syndrome or turners syndrome okay freaking out now the ultrasound also showed that there might be a problem with her (baby) heart and that she is at least 3 weeks to small for her due date. Trying to be strong for MY baby while her baby is in need is a bit much. my son in law is overseas serving our country. Her mother in law keeps telling her that the dr's are wrong they dont know whats up and she does because of HER research on the internet ( she's a bus driver for goodness sakes and not a dr!) tThey did and amneo on her and well get the results in 10 days. so far one of the longest waits in my life. and she still has an 80% chance of loosing the baby even after she's born/ I'v been crying off and on and getting a bit edgy I don't want to completly break down in fromt of my daughter but I'm not as unemotional as her monster in law ( who says people with children and are preg can do it all and dont need help.... WRONG!!!!!) It's 5 am ca time I've been up crying and cant sleep sence 3 my body hurts my IBS is crazy , my hives are coming back. I've got a case of shingles started on my head ....I WANT MY MOMMY!!!!! I have to go to work on mon and pretend ( in front of patients) everything is ok and its not. I"ve eaten so much choc icecream and cried in the floor with my daughter i've gained 10lbs already AAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
