I just got scared out of my mind
April 3, 2007 3:13pm CST
I started the day off with my younger sister calling to update me on my sister Joanie's condition.Things look hopeful but around noon I get a call that there is internal bleeding ..docs don't know from where but Joanie had refused an op to find out and was refusing dialysis.They said they would call back with news.I had to go to the bank and get cat food ..had no choise so went .When I got back I can see that my niece(she's more like my sister)has called.I don't have an answering machine anymore but I could see it on the caller id on the phone.Of course I start getting upset and look up the number for the hospital again.I ring the number and the lady on the line tells me that there is no Joan Walker as apatient..so I start crying and she asks if she was coming for a treatment? I say that she is in the (critical Care Unit)ccu and she tells my that I am speaking to the GF Hospital Cancer Treatment Center which is a branch of the hosp but that I need to call the other number.I called and got connected to the waiting room for the ccu and spoke to my nephew.The present situation is that she is bleeding somewhere inside but will not agree to another operation.She did agree to a transfusion and dialysis today but is not promising anything for tomorrow...I'm high..I'm low...I'm exhausted! Again thank you all you lovely myLot friends...I don't know what I'd do without you. xoxoxooox

Raydene, just hold on to the hope that she will eventually cooperate and have the operation. We are all praying and thinking about your family. I am glad to hear she agreed to the transfusion and the dialysis today. That maybe just enough to make her feel better to take the next step and have the operation. Take care of yourself.

Oh my goodness I bet you got scared when you received this bad news and especially when you phoned the hosptital and there was nobody there by that name. Oh dear I hope and pray that she will change her mind and everything will work out I will still keep praying for the best outcome, it must be dreadful I feel so sorry for you.
