Bad news

If you wonder where I have been, why I haven't posted for so long... I am in Fargo ND. My dad got real sick on last Sunday that my mom called me and asked me to go home. So Sunday, Andrew and I flought out here immediately. My dad got gallstone 2 sundays ago, then he has been in ICU since last Wednesday since he has pancreatitis. The doctor said he is in a very critical situation. And he will need a long time to get better. he needs surgeries every other day. He already had 3 and the doctor said there will be more until the infection has gone away totally.

Maybe I shouldn't say much more here, but sometimes I feel scared and useless. There is nothing I can do to help my dad. On the other hand, I am glad I am here with my mom that I could give her supports.Andrew has been by my side all the time when I need him. My mother in law also offers to come here to help me. My friends from school also gave me lots of supports. Of course my best friend Renee, I can't tell how much or how important or how much she mean / is to me. I don't know how to express, but I feel I am so lucky to have them. Without them, I would be so lost.... I only want to say "Thank you!!" to them.

Phoebe,
I know you said it's a long road to recovery for your dad, but I hope he starts to feel better very soon. I know it must mean the world to your parents to have you there with them. So even if you feel useless, you're definitely not. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Big hugs for you and your family. You aren't useless, you are doing a very good thing for your Mom. Just having you by your Mom and dad's side is so much more useful to someone that is ill, than you can imagine. Hang in there!

Thinking of you.

I'm sorry your dad's having such a hard time. I think you're right, though, even if you don't feel like much help to your dad, having you (and Andrew) there is helping your mom immensely. You and your family are in my thoughts, too.
