The way things are

Life is a really hard game. The pieces keep falling out of those teeny little cars!

So tired.

I went camping with BloodMan and the Native last night. It was delightful, although I never sleep well on rocky ground when it's cold outside. I estimate that I got five-ish hours of sleep, if that. Nevertheless, it was wonderful. And we didn't even have toilets. This is deserving of more, so I will hopefully post later about it, but for now, I can't.

When we finally got back to where we get reception, I received a text message from Charlene telling me to call her asap. My heart sunk and I called her knowing there was bad news. She informed me that Cuorderoy was not doing well--that she had developed an infection and that the doctors didn't know what was going to happen. Mother Cuorderoy called me a few minutes later to tell me the same thing. Apparently Cuorderoy lost three pints of blood from hemorrhaging. She said Cuorderoy is doing a little better than last night, but that things still aren't well.

I asked Mother Cuorderoy how she was doing, and she said she had been a mess early this morning, but that she was feeling better now. She sounded so tired, but she is so strong. I told her that if she needed anything that she could call me or my parents. "I know, Steph," she said. "I love you." I love that woman so much. She has always been like a second mother to me, and as soon as I hung up with her the tears came. I was glad I was with the Native--he gave me a tissue and was able to calm me down.

When I got home, I called the four people Mother Cuorderoy had asked me to call to tell them what was going on. That was hard. I tried reading a couple of blogs, but I just couldn't. I'm exhausted, physically and emotionally. Crying doesn't help, and goodness knows I've done plenty of that today. I will catch up on blog-reading and everything else later, but right now I'm just too tired.

I'm sorry. You can text me next time if something else happens, if it's easier. Or you can delegate some people for me to call...even though I really wouldn't want to. But I'm sure you don't either. :( Love you.

I totally understand your feeling of being tired and not motivated to do anything. I hope you're feeling better and that things work out...

Oh, and Happy Mother's Day (since you're a future mother)!
