Why so long Mary? March 31, 2008

Posted by The Mom in Uncategorized.

My father has been in hospital for 3.5 weeks. I can’t visit him because hospital visiting “instructions” are such that children, elderly, infirm and pregnant women shouldn’t visit because the risk of infection (with the Winter vomiting bug) is so high. When we went to visit at Easter I told my mother that I am pregnant because I needed her to know why I wasn’t going to visit my father in the hospital that was 5 minutes up the road from the house. She in turn told him so that he wasn’t sitting in his bed thinking that I was being bitch daughter from hell who wasn’t visiting even though she was only 5 mintues down the road.

She visits him twice a day and every time he asks if I am doing OK and asks when my scan is. This morning he said “It is not until next Tuesday” His response was “Why so long Mary?” He is, like the rest of us, fed up waiting. Waiting is killing me. It is still a whole week away but to be honest this wait is not the hard one. The wait between next weeks scan and the one the following week (if there is need for one) is the tough wait.

For a whole week I have had more than 100 individual viewers on my blog. YAY me!
