I cannot believe I am saying this, but I have more bad news to share. My 19-year-old nephew Eric had a seizure (his 3rd in 3 years) while driving yesterday (first time while driving), and got into a bad car accident. He is OK, but it was just so awful... let's just say I am dangerously close to a nervous freaking breakdown. *sigh* My sister and I work together, and I ended up getting the phone call at work yesterday morning - it was just so scary, I can't even put into words how scary it was. I love this kid like he's my own. He had dropped off my sister at work, picked up 2 of his friends, and was going back home to get ready to drive to the beach. Thank God he hadn't already left, thank God he wasn't on the highway... anyway, he had a seizure and lost control of the car with his foot on the accelerator and he crashed into a house. One of his friends had no injuries, the other had a facial laceration. Eric was covered in blood, but it looked much worse than it was - turned out that he had a lot of bruises and lacerations, a black eye, and needed stitches.
So now I am starting to feel like "what next?" and that is a crappy way to feel. :( I really need a stretch of some GOOD news, some FUN, something to look forward to... Jeremy's dad is doing better, so that's good. He's been on his back for so long that he did develop some blood clots in his legs, but they seem to have it under control. He's not in as much pain as he was, which is wonderful. Physical therapy is going well - and he's talking about stuff, which I'm sure is helping. Jeremy goes up several times a day to visit, we brought him dinner last night and visited for a couple hours. He has had quite a few friends visit, so he's very lucky to have a lot of support. I know it will help.
I am drained, I can't even explain how emotionally exhausted I am. My sister and I are heading over to my mom's yard today to lay by her pool and just relax. NOTHING bad can happen today - I FORBID IT! Are you hearing me, universe? I cannot take it - so give me a break here, please. Thank you.
