Real life crashing in.

Today I found out my cousin is in the hospital & they have no idea what's wrong with him. Apparently he's been in the hospital since Thursday & my grandparents didn't call us to tell us until fucking today. I have no idea why they would keep this a secret & then call me at my lunch hour almost a week later to tell us. I'm very upset at my grandparents for not telling us.

So what's going on is that my cousin who is 34 years old has a virus. They have NO idea what he has so he is in intensive care & in isolation. I'm freaking out because there is nothing I can do. I can't even go visit him because he's in isolation. I'm stuck in the water. I literally have about 13 people in my family counting both sides & due to stupid family drama some of them don't talk & it takes a toll on me. I'm in the middle of all of this mediating the information.

I know he's in the hospital which is the best place he can be right now but I'm scared. How can they not know what he has???? I....I'm all over the place right now. I wish I could go visit him & tell him he's going to be okay but I can't. We can't even go to my grandmother's house because if it's a disease the whole house could be infected. I don't know what to do, & there is nothing I really can do. I'm at a loss. Oh God please don't let anything happen to him.

I thought I would at least tell you guys what's going on in case I don't blog for a lil bit. Oh please let Davey be okay. Please. I gotta somehow get some sleep. It's always something, I pray its not life-threatening. I hope those doctors can help. I just wish I could do something, anything for him. Sigh. I gotta run, later everyone.

I hope your cousin is going to be okay!

I think the only thing you can do for him is pray....if it is a virus, they just have to isolate it and figure out what it is and let his body fight it off.

Viruses are evolving so rapidly and they change so often that it's hard to say exactly what virus, or what it is he has. I'm sure they're working very hard to figure out what it is - but if they've never seen it before they have to formulate a whole new plan of action to eliminate the virus.

Just pray lady!!

Pop Champagne said...

omg that sounds really awful. Especailly when the hospital workers cant figure out whats wrong with him and he's in isolation! I hope he gets better

HISdaughter said...

praying he's all right, and that YOU don't stress yourself too much. Take it easy, hopefully he will be out of isolation soon, and you can visit. Hoping they figure out exactly what is wrong so they fix it soon.

It sucks when the people you count on knowing the answer don't know the answer. house never takes a week to figure out the virus. i hope they figure it out.

Everything will be alright, I am praying for you. Don't be upset with your grandparents, they did what they thought was best, even though it might look wrong. Thy must have thought it would be wrong to disturb you all for a small issue, but it seems to b serious, now. I know what you're feeling like now.


You are on my mind. xxx
