I Want To Write My Random Thoughts And Feelings

I have had the worst 2 weeks that I imagined. Everyone was complaining about social distancing and I was like, I hate leaving home anyway! But 2 weeks ago my aunt was rushed to the hospital by ambulance about a month after having surgery to have some malignant tumors removed. She tried to get the doctors to listen since she wasn't getting over the constant dehydration. But with the hospital trying to stay in constant readiness for Covid 19 to finally get here she was ignored until it was a very serious issue: UTI which turned into septicemia which caused kidney failure. She was put on life support for a week, and we thought she was getting better. But during that time Covid 19 did in fact become a problem in our state, we haven't been able to see her at all. This was bearable when she was in a coma because we knew she wasn't aware that none of us were there, it how much any of us want to be there. When she woke up she was told by the doctor ” I'm sorry, but boy we have pissed off a bunch of people. You have a lot of people who want to be here who we're not allowed to have here." This is when she found out about our country being in a pandemic.
(which kept her from being moved to the best hospital with the specialists and best facilities that she really needs given her medical needs.) As she came out of her coma she was fine. Working on physical therapy, calling people and talking on the phone, and suddenly, right back into the same boat. She's back on life support, but the last 4 days my family received a call wanting to know about her wishes, and today, we have been told that the next 12-24 hours are the most critical.

We have only been told that we can come if it's an end of life situation. This is my Aunt who is like my second mother. The one I tell everyone i get my attitude from 😂 I really do not know how to deal with any of this situation right now. I'm sitting here wishing that I had tried to become an accountant. I wish I didn't know so much about this type of stuff. Honestly I'd rather know about the newest tax laws than the prognosis of my aunt that I love so much who does not deserve to be going through this. I had been keeping myself in strict isolation so I could go take care of her after she was released. Yes, I'm still in one of those 8 States, but still I'm keeping myself very isolated just in case. But really, I just want some good news. I don't just want it. Really... I need it.
Im so sorry to hear about your aunt, sweetness!!

Im sure she understands the situation.... you know best that if you had any control over this, you would make her feel better and would take her home, but unfortunately,it is out of anyone's control and you should be more patient and have faith...

Hugs, exactly what Soossie said. This is not something you have control over, you just have to do what is advised. Hopefully the next 12-24 hours go well for her.
