    I'm hanging in there is barely...I feel like Sh*t all the time now...I can't stop crying...but my other 3 kids need me too....and so does hubby who is going through all of this with me...
    Morgan is slowly being weened off of everything, but each day something new pops up....there are so many small and big things wrong with her they and we can only treat one little thing at a time. The goal right now is just to make her comfortable..we just dont know..that is my standard line of response...no one knows to much till she starts recovering...I pray for the best, but am prepairing for the worse.
    I can't be with her when I want to and feel I need to..because hubby has to work, hospital is an hour-two hours away depending..I dont drive, and we have 3 other kids, with no one to watch them....Hubby has lost over a weeks worth of work right now...so while I worry about morgan, and hubby kids and myself, Now we also have to worry about how to buy milk, and pay for gas to get up and back...if anyone has time and can research ways to get donations or help..or anything in the mean time..which we try to figure other things out, I would really appreciate it...just pm me if you need my location for this. I tried going through the caseworker with the hospital, but I can never seem to catch him when he isn't busy..and I wont be at the hospital more than a few hours a night till the weekend...This is so hard...I thank you all so very much for your prayers and thoughts...every little bit counts...when I finaly settle down and my eyes dry enough to finish typing, I will try to let you all know just how much all of this means to me and my family right now. thank you

    Please talk to your daughter's nurses and other caregivers. They will be able to give you info on how you can get help. Hang in there, kid!

    I sure hope they can get this figured out for you.

    Maybe call Hospice in your area. Someone there might have some advice for you. Just a thought........

    Keep hanging on, I can't imagine one of my kids going through something like this.

    If you search in the web site for your city, sometimes they will have a list of organizations that help people, or even go to a local church, even if you are not a member, a lot have programs to help those in need. Someone recently posted a program that you can buy food for half the price as well. Every little bit helps right now.

    Call that hospital social worker from home, tell him you need help. You don't drive.........where are you, I'll come drive you if you are anywhere close to me.

    It's a sad fact but it's the same here too... sometimes you have to stand in the middle of the busiest corridor and just scream and cry until someone comes. And don't stop until someone who can give you some answers gets there. I can't believe they're too busy to talk to you!

    Sending heaps of love and hugs from here, it's the "not knowing" that makes it so hard. If you have a plan you have something to focus on, but when they have no idea what's wrong, it's so much worse.

    Jamie, where is your family? Where is your mom? best friend? Do you have any help or support at all? any sisters?
    I just don't know what to say, but I wish I could help. I know you were stressed before this happened. I would do like mimisharon suggested, and call the social worker. Somebody at that hospital, deals with these issues all the time. Still saying prayers, sweetie.
