More Bad News

Richard's doctors have come back and said that they don't think he's going to make it the two to four months like they thought. They downgraded the expectancy to a matter of a few weeks instead. 

My entire family is going to be at the hospital this weekend. This is the first time the entire group has been together in over ten years. One person had a falling out with another, the rest took sides and the ensuing grudge has lasted almost fifteen years now. If anything good comes from this, I hope dearly that it will reconcile the family. 

I am dreading this weekend almost more than I would dread a root canal. I am by nature a very private person. I try my very hardest not to display any strong emotion in public and I literally *loathe* touching people. *Any* people. 

I don't even hug my family and they've finally learned, after 30 years, not to try. 

Now take that normal disposition and multiply it by a factor of 50 when I'm distressed about something. The thought of being in a hospital room, surrounded by weeping, clingy, emotionally needy family members is just...

I don't have words to describe how that makes me feel. 

:shudders in horror:

Oh and to top everything else off....I have to go to the doctor in the morning, because I think I have strep throat. Again.

Thank you, I appreciate it.

Think of me next weekend. They postponned us coming until next Saturday, so I don't run the risk of spreading my germs.

I appreciate it! It was put off until next weekend due to my illness and not wanting to expose him to my germs. (It wasn't strep, but I did have the flu, a sinus infection and an ear infection. Yuck!)
