  1. Here are some excerpts from my Xanga. They sort of explain my current situation in a very underdetailed way.

    Funny story. Walking home today and some kid asked if I was going to wrestling. I said no. Now naturally, since most wrestling stuff happens across the street from my house I figured it got cancelled or something. Come around the corner and see a bunch of ambulances and cop cars and figure something happened there. Turns out they're in my house near my mom who can't breathe. Fucking great. Needless to say, wasn't a fun experience.

    I went to the hospital with her for a while then I looked for a ride home later in the night. As always, Britta came to my rescue. Her mom even gave me and my brother some soup, it was kewlz. Yea, I skipped driving because I don't feel like freaking doing anything now. Didn't do any homework either. I dare a teacher to start with me tomorrow

    The fun never stops. Found out today my mom has a serious pneumonia. Glad she got in there while she still had time. Anyone, the day got worse as it went on. I found out that last night, I missed my driving final exam. Woo-haa. I wasted 70 bucks on nothing.

    So much stuff to do, I'm constantly alone in my house. The dirty dishes are piled up, im running out of clean clothes, and I don't have any food. God I'm such a momma's boy. Come home mom :(

    Went to the hospital for the fourth time today. Luckilly, my mom is becoming increasingly better. Not drastrically, but better nonetheless. She's been diagnosed with ARDS, which is apparently very rare. (Less than 10000 cases in US each year). She's going to pull through, I can see it.

    I started to cry in her room again. I held her hand and started talking to her (mind you she's sedated). I told her it was me and she turned her head toward my voice and made a face which made me knew she was listening. She can obviously hear us. When the nurse said she was going to have to cut her wedding ring off, she made of a face of 'sad' and shook her head no. My dad told them not to touch the ring.

    I'll keep everyone updated. I'll try to be in school tomorrow, but don't expect too much.

    My mom is in pretty bad condition. Very bad condition. I'm just asking that anyone who reads this puts her in your prayers for a few nights. I don't know what I'll do if she leaves.

    Great news! My mom is apparently doing 3x better today. Although still in critical condition, her blood will clot if they need to go through with the operation (they might not even have to). Her breathing is at 190 while it was at about 51 yesterday. She's going to pull through, she could even be awake in a few days. God bless that woman man.

    And that's all I have for now. Sorry to bring depressing news on a good day but I'm having a hard time celebrating doom's birthday :\ Have fun everyone

      Dude, that's horrible. Sorry to hear about this. I wish you all the best of luck, and glad to see your mom's improving as time goes on.

      Ralphis, my heart goes out to you. Last year my mom was first stricken by anemia, then heart failure, then diabetes, all in succession. So I know what it's like to fear for the life of a loved one. Since she was divorced, it was just me and her...when she was at the hospital, it felt very alone, but she eventually pulled through. And even though she now has to make it to the hospital occasionally for checkups, she's a lot better than before and is living a fairly normal life. But yeah, I really hope your mother gets better and this turns out well for you and her and your father.
