I Should B Asleep

As the title states I should be asleep. Not because it is 0355 in the morning but because I'm so exhausted I am struggling to keep upright. Being that I am at work it is extremely difficult to perform the task needed for me.


I bet you are curious as to why I am so tired.

Care to take a guess?

FYI. It is not because of anything fun or IF related.

Give up?

ok, I'll tell you.

It is my sister. She was back in the ER yesterday and I was with her every step of the way. for the last 2 weeks she has had difficulty walking and eating. It got prgressively worse and she finally told me about it yesterday. She said she didn't tell me earlier because she didn't want me to worry or miss any work. Well I took her imediately to the ER where they did more tests than I can remember.

The verdict?

A complication from her surgery at the end of December.

First of all she had an infection just after the surgery that was just gross ( I am sparing you the details. You're welcome). It took two rounds of heavy antibiotic to clear up. we thought she was past it.

Guess not...

So turns out she had a swollen spleen and GI. Apparently it is something that "can" occur in women that have heserectomys. My poor sister just can't seem to get a break.

Luckily she is slowly on the mend but this along with the infection will set back her recovery even further. She is still not cleared from the doctor and supposed to be on bed rest.

Being that she is stubborn and getting cabin fever she keeps pushing herself adn gosh darn her she WILL NOT LISTEN and stay the heck in bed!

So, that is what is going on. I have been awake for so many hours and running on 2 hours of sleep before that. Lucky me I "get" to work a double tomorrow/today to make up for my missed shift last night.

Have a good day Bloggie world and for goodness sake get some sleep :-)


  1. Omgoodness, your poor sister. I'm so glad she has you in her life. You are doing an amazig job of being there for her. I hope you've had a chance to catch up on your sleep since you posted this.
