  • Its been a rough day

    Hi all.

    I am seeking some solace tonight.

    Today my wifes mother was in a head on collision on the icey roads here in IL.

    This happened around 8am and I have been here at the hospital all day. This is the first time I have had to clear my head.

    I have been married to my wife for nearly 10yrs now and believe it or not my mother-in-law means a great deal to me. She is in a coma right now hooked to life support and has a broken neck and swelling in her brain.

    I am out of tears for the day and exhausted. My wife is a wreck and cant seem to settle down. Everyone is resting for a bit so to clear my head I am here on this forum. I know this is a place where I can come to clear my head and catch a laugh. I will spend the next few minutes on here as my escape from the hardships I am sure to face over the next couple of weeks. I am so thankful for this site and all the great people who make it so enjoyable for me.

    Sorry if I have gotten to mushy but I have not been able to share how I am feeling while trying to be a rock for my wife.

    If any of you are the praying sort please do. Her name is Ginnie.

                Jake I will pray that Ginnie not suffer and recovers as soon as I log off. You are lucky to have such a good relationship with your wife's mother and ten years is not enough when things are going so well. Her injuries sound very serious and her recovery may be slow at best so try and pace yourself and encourage your wife to take care of herself during this difficult time. Visit here from time to time in order to catch a break from the stress and strain of maintaining a vigile. It is the tough times that test our strength and love, take care. Frank

                        In this time of despair your family is looking to you for support. I know it is hard when all you want to do is break down, but YOU are their rock.
                        For the first time in years, I will say a prayer, for you and your family.

                          Well.... you have all proved my point about this group here.

                          Thanks so much for the encouragement and kind words and prayers. It really helps a lot and I have shared your kindness with my wife. She really appreciates it too.

                          Ginnie has become more stable today but she is still on life support and in a coma. We are hoping for her brain to heal with no lasting effects. We really need her to wake up sooner than later.

                          The neurologist said that he is very surprised at how well she is doing with all things considered. He thought when he came in this morning that she would have had massive swelling. The swelling has actually gone down a little bit and the bleeding in her brain is minimal.

                          Thanks again for all your support and prayers.
