Ambulances, Bed Pans and Exhaustion

Mom and Deana had to be taken to the ER by ambulance this morning and I am just getting home and it's 9 pm. It has been a very long overwhelming exhausting day.

Deana was admitted and will be in the hospital for a few days due to a bacterial infection, her white blood cell count is really high and she has a bad UTI.

Mom got to come home but she is still pretty sick.

Marissa is sick and has a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I have no clue how I am going to get her there because no one will be here to stay with mom.

I need to clone myself.

I never pictured having to take care of a bed ridden mother and an aunt in poor health while raising small children. I thought the kids would at least be a bit older before it came to that. But it has and I will take care of them until the day I die, it's just really overwhelming right now. But I will find a way to juggle it all and I know God will give me the strength.

I am the luckiest woman in the world to have such a caring, giving and compassionate husband and one who has no qualms about putting his mother-in-law on the bed pan when he has to.

Going to collapse into bed now. I hope this post makes at least a little sense. :)
