I know all of you have been wondering how I've been the last few days and how my mom is doing as well. I apologize for not posting earlier - I've just had so much going through my head I didn't have the energy to sort it all out, let alone create a coherent post.

Since arriving at Mary Ann's I have had time to relax and decompress a bit, and now I'm feeling some better about the whole situation. At this point I'm juggling focusing on looking for work while still being concerned about my mom and her recovery. It's tough, but I know my being here is the right thing for me. A part of me feels guilty of course, but my dad, brother and grandparents are all supportive of this decision. Coupled with support from all of you I know I can manage to get through the days to come.

As for my mom, she was transferred to another hospital on Thursday evening, where her MS doctor is based. After close examination he determined that she has also suffered a complete mental breakdown as a result of severe depression. That explained why she wasn't waking up even after the medicines were long out of her system and her MRI and CT scans were clear.

She is now receiving the care she needs - counseling, physical therapy, nutritional support through a feeding tube (she was refusing to eat), in addition to having her meds regulated and monitored. It's very hard to think of her in this state, but I know she will eventually get better with the help of the medical staff and us supporting her. She is already making progress - beginning to eat some and speaking a few words and simple sentences even. I was overjoyed last night when my dad called and she told me "hey baby" and "I love you" over the phone, the first words she has said to me since the incident. I had been very discouraged leaving for Boston as I didn't get to 'really' tell her goodbye, she was only semiconcsious and didn't respond when I spoke to her the last time.

So, as you all can imagine I still have a lot on my plate these days. I'm taking the steps necessary to get my life back on track and hope the days to come bring new opportunities and reasons to believe. I'm so grateful for all of you and know I'd never have come this far without each and every one of you in my corner. God has really blessed me with the most amazing friends!!! Please continue to keep my family and me in your thoughts and prayers.

To each and every one of you...
T'estimo
Jeg elsker dig
Ik hou van jou
I love you
Je t'aime
Ich liebe Dich
s' agapo
ti voglio bene
Wo ai ni
Eg elskar deg
Amo-te
Jag a"lskar dig
Ch'ha di ga"rn

((HUGS))

Oh, Renea that's better news then! I am happy for you and I am convinced that what your mother wants is you to be happy and find a good job and be cared by a good friend like Mary Ann. That's what all mothers want. What's most important is that she is having a good treatment and she is monitorized.

Oh, I was so touched when I saw you found the words in my language. How did you find this in Catalan? You must have made a thorough research. T´estimo moliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssimmmmmm també!
That means I love you a lot too. hehe

Take care and keep us informed. And good luck with your new job, I am sure you'll get one very soon. I've got that feeling. Razz
