Trying to keep busy

Sometimes the more you know, the more difficult things are. Being a trained nurse it can be difficult to not take over in family health-emergency related issues. I find it frustrating that all I get are garbled half-correct (and sometimes wildly inaccurate) messages from people. I understand medical speak...it's familiar...and it is descriptive and meaningful and leaves me in no doubt as to a person's condition....however bad that might be. But when all you're getting are messages which suggest that people are ok and then one contradicting it saying that everything is NOT ok...and then you get a message asking who they should complain too.....ugh! It makes me want to drive over there and take over. Yet (frustratingly) I am sat here, very worried, very confused and trying to make sense of euphemisms and other people's confusion. Andy got a rather worrying text message from his brother this afternoon so Andy left straight for the hospital and couldn't pick me up as he didn't want to delay (not knowing if time was of the essence or not). So I'm trying to keep busy and praying to God that he is actually ok (relatively speaking).

And of course how do I support my husband who is (potentially) about to lose his father?

Oh no...I have you and Andy in my thoughts. What a frustrating, powerless situation. I'll be sending good energy & prayers.

Thanks Jen - I'm hoping and praying that he's ok. It's come as bit of a shock really because his dad is so fit and well! Obviously he has his ailments - what man doesn't in hos late 70's? But he's probably the healthiest specimen of a man hos age that I know!

Oh, my precious friend....praying for all of you. Please let me know if there's something more that I can do....across the waters!!!

Thanks Deb! I think at this time prayers are the most precious thing you could do for us so thank you so much Deb. I'm still trying to fully understand the situation but unfortunately can't get there until the weekend because Andy is going straight from work again. He works fairly near where his dad is, so it doesn't make sense to drive all the way over here (nearly 40 miles out of his way) before setting off. It's just killing me because I'd like to support him. I don't know, I just feel kind of helpless...
