Hell and Back…another Emergency Day 3


It’s Saturday and I don’t have to work.  I was going to ask the kids’ Godmother and my nieces to watch the boys, but my parents know that the baby is going to cry.  Last time I left them there the youngest would grab the older boy’s hand and drag him to the door.  He’d … Continue reading

Hell and Back…another Emergency Day 2


When I get home from the hospital and the craziness my dad calls and asked what time I will be dropping off the kids the next day.  I tell him I’ll keep them in the morning till mid-afternoon before I head down.  I figure that way, I could drop off the kids while the rest … Continue reading

Hell and Back…another Emergency


It started Sunday night. The all too familiar pains that has been the precursor to the living nightmare to come. I was worried the whole night. But on Monday morning he seemed fine. Good in fact. Felt like a normal day. I was still scared. This felt all too familiar. I wanted to believe that … Continue reading

They immediately do an x-ray, draw blood for testing, do 2-hrs of dialysis using his fistula instead of his line.  He has a bit of trouble breathing.  His left lung has some noise.  Possibility of pneumonia, infection of the dialysis line (which is … Continue reading

Balancing Act II


No Zumba. No Swimming lessons.  But at least I was going to go see him.  All thanks to the time, generosity, kindness, patience, and unconditional love of Marcus’ Godmother and my parents.  My parents would watch my toddler while  W. would drive me down to see The Husband and wait in the car with the … Continue reading

Balance between Husband and Children


The kids will win 99.9% of the time.  But, it breaks my heart to do it. Franklin woke me at 5am.  “Babe, I’m in pain”.  Oh no.  It was his day off of doing dialysis treatment (he gets two days off a week because his job is keeping himself alive with proper treatment).  I call … Continue reading
