I have had a rough day. Deep breath, Eden.
I don’t know how well to express it but here goes nothing. Deep breath, Eden.
In all honesty, I dont want to write much and I was considering not writing at all. But I didn’t want you guys to think anything happened to me and I want to be honest with what I’m going through.
My dad suffered a brain hemorage today. We were supposed to to go grocery shopping for thanksgiving when I called and he said his head hurt and wasn’t feeling well. I wont go into to much detail but we went to the ER and he has sever bleeding on the left side of his brain. He’s going fairly well considering the circumstances but he can’t remember names (although he knew mine) and hes in the ICU currently. His girlfriend suggested I go home and eat and rest, and that is where I’am right now.
He will likely be in there for a few days. So no thanksgiving dinner for me tomorrow. I’m hoping this will blow over and we’ll have a lovely make-up thanksgiving. But I’m anxious as hell right now and as some of you know, I lost me mother when I was 13 and my dad is all I have right now.
I dont need a pity party but I want to be honest about my feelings.
I’m scared, I’m worried, I’m confused, I’m tired, and I’m helpless.
Luckily, he is in great hands (seriously, if any of you are ever in LA and have an emergency, Cedars Sinai is the best place you can go!) and a good family friend of ours who is a doctor, was with me the whole time, translating the medical jargon for me and putting me somewhat at ease.
And I must thank Abby for reminding me to take care of me and for reminding me to take deep yogic breath.
In the spirit of thanksgiving, I’d like to thank all of you for your support and I will update you when I know more.
Till then, have a wonderful thanksgiving.
Deep breath, Eden.
