So maybe a week and a half or two weeks ago I called my aunt, no answer so I left a message. She's usually good about getting back and I forgot about it for a few days. When I realized she hadn't called back I wanted to call again, but it was late every time I thought about if for a couple of days. So tried her again about 4 or 5 days ago, left another message, still no return. Well that usually means she's in the hospital or nursing care facility after the hospital if she's already been released. She's in her 80's now. So I called her living center (she's lives in a senior retirement place, basically apartments with meals prepared in the dining room, and they clean once a week for you), and they said she's been in the hospital for a little over a week, but didn't know which one. The second hospital I tried was the right one. I spoke with her for a couple of minutes, but she had a doctor in the room and said she'd call me back (that was 5 hours ago, so I'll try her tomorrow). So I don't know all the information except she has abdominal pain and a growth on her kidney. They don't know what the growth is she says unless they do surgery, which because of her age either she doesn't want, or they won't do (not clear on that part). Because of what happened on the long car trip last week I don't want to risk driving out to see her (she's 2 hours away). So long story short, please keep my aunt Dovie in your T&Ps.

*So when I talked to my aunt yesterday she said she should be released from the hospital on Tuesday sometime, if she was doing well enough. She won't be able to go home though as she'll be unable to care well enough for herself. So she has to go back to a place she's been before, its a nursing/rehabilitation place. Then it's a wait and see how long she'll be in there.

I'm sorry to hear your special aunt is not doing so well. Sending prayers for angels to surround her hospital bed. I pray that she will not be afraid and be at peace with whatever the doctors say. I know you would like to be with her, but know she is well taken care of. God will not leave her nor forsake her.

Oh Therese, I'm so sorry you are unable to go and see her! I know only too well how tough it is! Keep calling her and get all the time you can on the phone with her. She needs it as much as you do. I hope she gets well and you can see her again soon. Have her listen to the doppler over the phone!

Thanks everyone. I'm going to wait until this afternoon to try her back since it seems mornings are when they like to run tests, have the doctors visit, etc. I have a friend up in her area that will go visit for me (once she is over her cold). I've been having more contractions today than the last few, so I know DH will veto a trip of that distance until after baby is born. I will keep you posted when I find out more. I'm hoping at least one of my brothers who are a little closer can get up to visit with her.

Thanks so much. I ended up being gone all afternoon so didn't get a chance to call her, and she hasn't called back. Going to try in the morning again and hopefully she'll have more info.

So apparently my aunt doesn't keep phone numbers in her cell phone and couldn't call me back. I talked to her this morning and she says she's feeling some better, but still really weak. They'll keep her until sometime next week if she progresses well enough, and then treat the growth with medication as best they can. She did tell me that she's lived a good life and 83 years is good enough for her. I think she's really tired.

Oh that is SO hard to hear. My Aunt said the same thing to me last Nov. She said she doesn't want to be in pain anymore and wanted to be with her husband and son.

I'm so sorry your Aunt feels that way. Perhaps when the medication has taken effect and she is feeling a bit better she will see things differently. Keep calling and talking to her about all the wonderful things going on - hopefully she will want to participate.

I don't know what to do other than call her. She's not that far, 2 hours. But after the last 2 hour trip I know DH won't want me going, and I'm not sure he'd want to go by himself and be so far away from me in case something came up. She does have a sister who lives out that way, but she's blind and can't drive. I know her son lives out that way also, but I also know he's been very sick as well (he had cancer and lost part of his jaw and his tongue). I'm hoping my 2 brothers who live about an hour or so away from her can get up to see her soon. Thanks for the T&P
