*update* - must be the fall - all seem to break down around me

Post by mamakatrien on Wed Oct 10, 2012 3:03 pm

Not sure how to put it, but in my family all the 60+ people suddenly seem to have a combined breakdown, needing hospitalisation or homecare, and to top it off, my dad phoned me this morning he was sick with food poisoning - if I could rush over to take my disabled brother out of bath, dress and shave him, brush his teeth and get him to his daycare. I hope ( and deep down know) that all will work out in a few weeks.
Nevertheless, I am so glad this forum exists - it is a nice escape for a few minutes when I can spare them, and Denise truly brightened up my evening with honouring my request for her doggie design...
makes ME feel like there are also people who are willing to listen to me and care vs being always on the go for everyone else!

Oh, my goodness! When it rains it pours. Hope things start to get easier soon.

Oh dear, Mamakatrien - I'm so sorry to hear that everything's gone wrong with the people you love, and all at the same time! Hang in there, hold on tight, use this place (and your paints) for escape....and remember that "this too shall pass". Hope it passes sooner, rather than later.

Hugs!

Kammy stole my line! lol She is right though. Good or bad nothing lasts forever and this too shall pass. There is a whole world of love and support here for you. Take everything one step at a time and you can get through anything. Don't forget to take time to be inspired and appreciate that you are alive. Smile It gets hard in tough times.

Ow Mamakatrien, that's a lot of stuff to handle.... Sometimes dark clouds just seem packing together, and sunlight disappeared.
Hope there are still silver linings to those clouds, and sun will break through soon!!
Sending a big hug!

you are all so lovely and caring - and sooo right too!
While this morning it must still have been pouring ( internet was down, my car broke down, and I thought " hell yeah, why not") I think there must be light at the end of this tunnel, because I found a really friendly mechanic just two streets away who will get my car up and running again by tomorrow afternoon!

And I've been able to reschedule all appointments with the help of some friends who will drive me to the most important things. And best of all : the internet is back up so I can do laundry and ironing while watching fp-vids!

Thanks for all your support, and I hope things will turn around soon for all who are stuck in a thunderstorm right now!

It has also been a blessing to have this many grandparents alive at my age, I stil have two grandmothers and one grandfather - all rapidly approaching 90 to 100 years of age, so one just knows you cannot keep them forever. And both my parents and my inlaws are still going strong ( or not so strong) at the moment. But it is still always unexpected I guess - just heard that one of my grandmothers who is in hospital for an infection is now in a coma... and then you think there are so many things you still wanted to ask her.
so - still pouring overhere.

Sorry to hear about your family health problems and the extensive care giving they need at this stage in their life. My mother in law will be 95 yrs old come Nov. and lives with me, so I definitely understand your situation.
Sending hugs and happy thoughts your way... sunny

just received message today that a close friend passed away of cancer - this will be the 3rd funeral since I started this thread.
First lost another old friend to lungcancer in october, my grandmother died three weeks ago, and today Walter died of livercancer. He was not that much older than me.
This is not a good season.

Ow mamakatrien.....

Soms is het ook wel erg veel om te dragen, niet?
Ik wens je heel veel kracht en sterkte toe om dit een plekje te geven.
Wat is het toch een gemene ziekte...

Vorige week een kennis van ons gediagnostiseerd alvleesklierkanker. 48 en nog 6 maanden te leven... Ik probeerde al zo min mogelijk te zeuren over mijn eigen situatie en dat doe ik nu dus maar helemaal niet meer...
Het is zo oneerlijk......

I agree Lizzie, it is so sad, it only makes one appreciate what we have even more.

Yes, it is a really nasty disease! I hope that better times will arrive soon, just stay strong and keep faith.
