My Brother goes back to the doctors today and I’m a bit nervous. I haven’t been up to see him in over a week and I don’t know if I should plan on a trip or not. I send messages to my sister all the time and it always sounds like they’re running errands so I don’t know if she’s just doing that to keep him busy or what is going on. I’m truly nervous that he just won’t get his functions back and be 100%. It’s the first thing in our aging family that has happened like this (at least that is visible) and it’s scary.
I’ve told my sister to let me know how it goest but I don’t want to seem overly nosey because I know she might not want to talk about it if it’s bad, I hope it’s not bad. They still have one more surgery to get through and that one I know is going to be extra frightening after going through this. They say that a lot of people have the surgery and you can only have it if you’re healthy enough and they think he’s healthy enough so that’s good.
My heart is breaking for them both with having to go through this. I’ve been in a situation like it with taking care of my mother but I still find myself wondering what to do to help. I live so far away from them that I can’t just “pop” over and offer to take them to the store or go to the store for them. I wish I could just make it all go away for them and get back to where they were before.
We’re going to go back up next week and see them for the first time since just after it all. I’m hoping it’s going to make me feel better and I truly hope that he’s on the track back to who he was before. I’m scared but praying everyday for him.
