I hate to bring you guys bad news so soon after my good news. My life has been a damn rollercoaster ever since the hurricane, and it just took another dip.

My father looked like he was doing good for awhile. He was even getting changed into his pajamas without help – a pretty big accomplishment for a stroke patient. And then, yesterday, he took a bad fall in the kitchen and bumped his head on the spice rack. My mother had to get the first aid to get him back up and into his chair, but it looked like he’d sustained no serious damage – at first.

And then, my mother couldn’t wake him up. Shook him, called his name, the works. She had to call the first aid again, and this time, they took him to the hospital for a CAT scan. We found out this morning he’d had yet another stroke. They said this one might be more severe than the first one he had. No indication as to whether the stroke was the result of the fall, or the fall was the result of the stroke – not that it matters.
Needless to say, he was admitted. Ironically, he’s in the exact same room he was in after he had the first stroke.
He was only home four and a half days before this happened.

So, back to square one all over again. And once again, I’m going to be thanking God for fandom, because I’m going to need it. (I swear, the copy of Tumblr on my phone has been the main thing that’s gotten me through this. Also, I'm starting to really wish PSC made plushies of its artists).

Ahw, girl, that is terrible! D: I can't believe his bad luck. Stay strong and hope fandom will save you from sleepless nights. *hugs tight*

Thank you. It is almost surreal at this point, isn't it? I'm really hoping this is the last time we have to go through this.

Awww, bb. That's just terrible. :( Please stay strong and just think of your fandoms. Alice Nine's Daybreak, the DECADE and your biases... *hugs*

At least it helps that I have new stuff to look forward to, right? (What good timing for Alice Nine to announce three singles in as many months!)
Jan. 9th, 2013 09:18 pm (UTC)
Oh no!!!! *hugs* That's terrible. :( I'm so sorry! The release of the Decade DVD is well timed then... Tumblr is full of screen caps, which is lovely.

Best timing in the world, right? And I'm glad there's stuff on Tumblr, because Tumblr on my phone has been all that's kept me sane throughout all that sitting-in-the-hospital.

I have a ruki plushie someone made me---I like him lots but if I can cheer you up and give you comfort I'm more then willing to send him to you <3 Sending you my love dear!!

Hold onto your plushie - you'll never know when you'll need him. The thought is very much appreciated, though - thank you!

Oh no! :( That's horrible... I really hope this will be the last stroke and that he'll manage to recover properly.
Jan. 13th, 2013 03:55 pm (UTC)
I hope so - I really wish they'd pinpoint what's causing this once and for all so they can eliminate it. (I know the smoking and diabetes were contributing factors, but there's got to be a root cause that they're not seeing.)

I hope so. I just want them to find the underlying root cause of all this, fix it and put an end to this cycle once and for all. Thanks!

It's horrible that your dad has to suffer so much. It makes me sad to read about this. My dad was seriously sick too (He suffered from sepsis after a surgery in 2008) the doctors told us chances were fifty fifty for him to survive so the whole family was in some weird state where we only funcitioned like machines. I was aboard for studies and all I could do was to call my mom every day and to pray for his recovery. When he called me the first time after he woke up from coma I was crying so much. In the end I couldn't do anything for him to recover and I think it was his own strong will and the care of the doctors to bring him back to us. I am glad you can be with your father, help and visit him in hospital, cause when I think of my self back then I wouldn't have made it to the hospital even if I could because I would have cried nonstop. Thats why I think you are a very strong woman. Please stay strong a little longer! I am thinking of you as an amazing person! Not only your writing is amazing you are the type of woman I want to become too someday! I hope this doesn't sound weird to you (my english is not perfect) It's from heart <3

Oh, my God, I'm sorry you had to go through that. That sounds like it was awful - and to be separated from the family when that happened as well! And what you said doesn't sound weird at all - I am extremely flattered. Believe me, it hasn't been easy sometimes to stay strong through all this - it's why I'm very glad I have a second family in fandom.

I'm so sorry to hear that :( You'll be in my thoughts and I hope things work out for the better for you and your family.
Jan. 13th, 2013 03:59 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I hope things work out better, too. We've long since reached the "enough already" stage.
Jan. 10th, 2013 02:42 am (UTC)
i truly hope that our prays reach you and your family. don´t forget we are here with, although as strangers. go on and write all your stories so you can relieve your stress.
a hug from this side of the world

Thank you! Oh, I've been using writing a lot to help relieve stress, ever since the hurricane - the GazettE Kink/Porn Meme came around at just the right time! I think I would have gone nuts without my fandom family, really.
Jan. 10th, 2013 09:23 pm (UTC)
I'm really sorry, girl. I really can't say anything because... well, there's not much to say in this cases. I just hope, and I'll pray, for his recovery and for your strength. *hugs* Keep holding on, for him, for you, and for your family. Don't lose faith, and try to keep as 'happy' and relaxed as possible given the circumstances. ):
I know I can't help much being so far away, but if you ever need anything... ANYTHING, just send me a message, and I'll be here for you. Whenever. *cuddles*
Jan. 13th, 2013 04:04 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much. It means a lot, really. And I am trying to stay as happy and relaxed as possible (even though I have friends continually telling me that I need to relax more). And I'm definitely staying strong!
Jan. 12th, 2013 07:07 am (UTC)

be tough girl,,
your daddy needs the cheerful you :)
Jan. 13th, 2013 04:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Oh, I have been trying to stay strong and happy as I can despite the circumstances. This is why I have a fandom family (not to mention Tumblr on my phone!)
