beyondpanic's Diaryland Diary

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Who?

My dad is back in the hospital. My mom is convinced he had a stroke. Me? I think so too, but the doctor is saying it may be because his sodium is so low – mind you, the last time he left the hospital they insisted he go on a low sodium diet. Go figure.

He seems fine sometimes but when we asked him who we were, he didn’t know. Of course, under stress I immediately take over the roll of the family comedian. When my dad couldn’t remember my name (me, who has always been considered by my family to be his “favorite”), I turned to my sister whose name he could remember and said “I knew the bastard would turn on me one day”.

Of course, my sister laughed, but it was that gallows laughter.

So, I was gone from work for two hours that I need to make-up. We only get 18 PTO days per calendar year (I know, isn’t that a disgrace!) and I need to use my time carefully. I worked until 7:30 tonight and then I’m going into work early tomorrow to make up the rest of the time.

My son and his girlfriend are coming into town with the baby for the weekend! I can’t wait to see them, but I know he is going to be very upset when he sees my Dad. When my husband was playing “bully dad” for the first 28 years of D's life, GrandPop was his refuge. It’s going to be very hard for him to see Dad this way.

My mom is being a rock – my heart just breaks for her. Will I be so kind to my husband if this happens to him?
