April is turning out to be the month from hell. My dog died on the 1st, my grandpa has a stroke and died a week later on Monday. Today my dad had a pretty bad stroke but seems to be stable. I don't really know what that means in terms of how/if he'll recover. He lives in Oklahoma and I'm in CA so there is no way for me to understand how bad he really is. He refused to go to the hospital so a judge in Oklahoma made him a ward of the state and made him go so he's in ICU.
My mom and her friend were going to drive there and bring him back here but I doubt he'll be in any condition to travel for a long time, and I can't go there because I have school. I feel so helpless and so bad that my dad is alone right now. I would be scared even with my family there, but to be by yourself like that in a hospital... His friend lives in Oklahoma and has been looking out for him, but there is only so much he can do.
This whole month has just been a mess. I feel like one emotional hurricane after another has been slamming into me every time I turn around. I have a feeling things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. I don't think I'll be posting as much, mostly because I won't be buying anything but necessities in case I have to help my mom with medical bills. I do still have stuff I haven't swatched or posted yet and I'll be posting that, if only to keep my sanity.
Please send healing thoughts to my dad, and maybe some peaceful/relaxing thoughts to me & my mom. We're both really worried and trying not to fall apart.
