I'm not sure why I'm writing this, other than I feel a need to pour out my heart. This has been a week like no other and I'm just barely keeping my head above water. Leo has been back in hospital since Monday with a bowel obstruction. I've been told that this is fairly common after as many surgical procedures as he's had as it's caused by scar tissue. They are hoping it will clear itself and surgical intervention won't be necessary. Right now he's not allowed any food or drink and they have tubes pumping his stomach to get what little is left in there out.
Sandra got some devastating news yesterday about my little grandkitty, Elliot. I'm not going into details but my heart just breaks for her. Vets have been wrong before and I hope with all my heart they are wrong with this diagnosis.
In between all this, I have been working full time this week. Now everyone at work has seen me totally break down and do the "ugly cry".
Did I mention the wedding is just six weeks away? How about the fact that my Mother needs to go into an assisted living facility but refuses to leave her home?
I really thought I was having a breakdown today and my wonderful doctor called me to reassure me about Leo and prescribed some medication to try and help me through this rough patch. Hell, this rough patch has been going on for over six months! I'm not adverse to taking drugs - anything to help me sleep and stop crying at the drop of a hat.
Each 'problem' on it's own I think I could manage, but I am torn in so many different directions it's getting harder and harder to cope.
