And we’re back

Honestly, I feel embarrassed to even write this.  It feels as if I’m hogging all the attention or something.  It’s very weird, but it becomes more and more uncomfortable when people that I don’t speak to that often, or don’t know that well, ask me for an update.  People want to hear “oh, she’s much better” or something equivalent and not only can I not say that, I can’t even really say why.  It’s not that I think their inquiry isn’t sincere – I’m certain it is – but it’s so hard to keep saying the same things over and over. 

She woke up about 3 am and felt pains in her stomach again.  My sweet daughter told Lars that she tried to just suck it up for a few hours so we could sleep (can you believe that?) but about 5:30 she woke me and said she was in increasing pain.  The vomiting started shortly after that and we’ve just been re-admitted.  She’s currently in a morphine induced sleep.

I’ll update again as news warrants.  And happy mother’s day to you all moms out there!

  1. Dear sweet Beth,

    Happy Mother’s day to you as well. You have shown what true mother is made of. Grit and love and compassion and honest emotion. Jack and Meri lucked out in the mom department. I am so very sorry that this is not coming to an end like it was supposed to. No child should have to go through this, no parent should have to watch.

    You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Beth,
    Happy Mother’s Day to you too. On this day…as on every other day that we should….let yourself off the hook. The body is complex and sensitive and each person is vastly different from another. The Dr’s are working hard to rebalance Meri. In the meantime, it’s trial and error….we understand that. I appreciate your writting….knowing is better than wondering. Besides, today of all days, is for you to do and post whatever you need. Thinking of you and your family and sending healing and balancing energies to Meri.

  3. Oh, the poor dear! Trying to let you sleep….

    You’re not hogging attention. We want to hear from you, even if it’s just to scream and say that you can’t take it anymore, because we’d certainly understand that.

    Our positive thoughts and prayers continue to go out toward Meri…
