My sister is sick... - July 16th 2009, 03:01 AM

They don't know what's wrong with her yet, but she's been having this really horrible aching all over, and she's been in and out of the hospital for the past two days. They ruled out some of the really bad things it could have been, but still, I'm so scared for her. They think it's a problem with her immune system, somehow. I talked to her on the phone earlier when she'd just gotten out of the hospital, and her voice was all hoarse and she barely sounded concious, they had given her so many painkillers...What they think it is, it might be treatable unless she has a really bad case (I can't remember or even pronounce the name of it), but they don't know yet... I can't stop thinking, what if it demobilizes her? What if it's fatal?

She's seeing a specialist tomorrow, so we might find out what it is, but I'm scared to find out what it is, or even worse, what if they can't figure it out? On top of it all, the doctors are totally stupid--she's been in hospital for two days, they just discharged her today, and they had it fixed so she wouldn't see a specialist until next Tuesday. My Mom ended up looking up the hospital and had to convince whoever the hell's in charge to switch the appointment to tomorrow. I can't let it go, I just keep thinking what if it's something really bad, and how I haven't been a good sister to her and...gah, I'm just freaked

now i feel so blessed to have a semi-healthy family. recently my grandmother got sick with mrsa though, and it was a shock for all of us. she's fine now though (: it ended up not being to bad and it's probably not coming back. i understand the fear though. but, just try to think positively and not worry so much. get your mind off of it for awhile. eventually time will pass.. and, whatever happens, happens. we can't magically heal her for you, but i really hope she ends up okay. just remember, chances are she'll be fine.


i've never told a lie, and that makes me a liar.
i've never made a bet, but we gamble with desire.
i've never lit a match with intent to start a fire.

Hey there, I have a sister to and I'd hate it if she got sick so I can nearly imagine how your feeling. She wouldn't want you worrying so much and just stay strong for her, for you and your family. Thinking its fatal is only thinking the worst and thats bound to happen but theres more chance whatever it is, is treatable if they've ruled out some of the bad things it could be already. I really hope she gets better, try and distract yourself or doing something for her like making a card or something if that helps? Like I said stay strong, and I hope she gets better.
Pm me anytime.

that must be really scary for you.
i can relate something happened with my sister a few years back and it's still really touch and go with her sometimes.
hopefully, like they said it's treatable and she will be fine.
just be there for her, comfort her, support her, etc!
try not to worry about it to much until you know something bad is for sure going on.
i'm really sorry this happened, if you want to talk, pm me.
keep us updated

keep your faith alive.
