So my dads getting two back operations and I can't stop worrying about him, its in seventeen days, he's getting to metal plates put on his spine and a whole drilled in his back... He's getting kept in for a week then when he's out I've to watch my eleven year old little sister and that's the week I start college so I won't be going but I can't help but worry what happens if he does get paralyzed, I have told my mum that I'd move out of her house and move in with my dad and take care of him. The worrying is stopping me from sleeping though :( any tips?
I am sorry to hear about that. :[ I know how you feel... I've had both my parents in hospitals, my mom in for life threatening surgery where we were told it was a half-half chance she would live. You just have to think good thoughts and if you can let them know you are doing so and are there for them. It may help them get through it. Try to keep your mind off of it a bit by doing things you like or spending time with people you care about. I know it is hard to be starting school around this time but it may help you keep busy. Life can be hard sometimes but you sound like a caring person so I hope everything works out.
Be supportive about it and relax. I try to think about something else for the time being even though that sounds totally insensitive! Sorry 'bout your dad, hope he feels better! If he does which may or may not happen, be thankful he's still alive. I would rather have my dad paralyzed than dead. :-) sorry if my anwser is a lil graphic
