fillise Posted August 15, 2009 Share Posted August 15, 2009 I've been hanging on by a thread for the past few days. Mom has been in the hospital since Wednesday and getting weaker instead of stronger. I had to fly to Tampa on business yesterday with one of the owners of the company I work for. Today when we got back to the Tampa airport to fly home, without saying a word to me, he got on the phone to our office manager and had her book me a ticket out of Atlanta first thing tomorrow morning so I can spend the weekend with my mom. It was all I could do not to burst out crying. I'm barely holding it together anyway and then someone goes and does something really nice. The tears have been bubbling under the surface for the past two days anyway, but it was all I could do to hold it together until I got in my hotel room tonight. Then I let it all out and had a good cry. If everything is on schedule tomorrow, I should be in Wilmington by 9 am tomorrow morning. Dad is picking me up at the airport. He isn't telling mom so it will be a surprise. I'll probably lose it again as soon as I see her. Don't want to do that. This is the first time since the shock of her dx wore off that I've been scared--really scared. Susan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
