All prayers are "please" or "thank you", and this one is "please"

Prayers and energy and good thoughts, whichever of those you do, requested for my sister.

She's nowhere near as public as I am, so I won't go into details. But she is in the ICU, hopefully to be transferred out of IC and onto a different floor where she'll just be highly monitored. She fell drastically ill yesterday, and though they've given her the immediate treatment she needs and she's currently considered stable, they've not been successful at getting her heart rate back down to normal, and they are concerned about some other things, so she has a few more procedures coming up, hopefully all much less invasive than yesterday's.

Yesterday's upsets me. It was terribly painful, and Ali's not used to medical procedures anyway - and they wouldn't let her husband stay with her. Concerns about maintaining a sterile environment. Me, I would've said "so scrub me in." So would my dad. But it wouldn't have occurred to Ali or her husband that they could ask for that, so my sister, who is so young for her age that I literally can never remember her age off the top of my head and have to keep revising upward starting at 27 (she's 32; she still feels 17 to me), had to be afraid and alone and in a lot of pain.

She will be okay. But my parents are out of the country, her husband isn't awesome in a crisis, our grandmother is the opposite of helpful, and I am so far away; some of Mom's friends have come to help, but they can be a lot to deal with. I have told them I'll come if they need me. Ali says she'll be okay, but she sounds shaky. So.

Damned lack of TARDIS.

Anyway. Good thoughts, please? Healthy-body thoughts? Because yeah, she drives me up the damn wall sometimes, but she's still my kid sister.

EDIT @ 6:30pm: She had to have another procedure, but at least she's out of the ICU and in the room on the monitoring floor - basically a level of monitoring between ICU and a regular room.

Good luck and good thoughts to her.

If there's anything I can do to help, please let me know.

*hugs*

Prayers, etc being sent her way! (As well as yours!)

Good thoughts, definitely. It's so frustrating to be far away and knowing that you could deal with the medical foo much better.
28th-Jun-2010 07:45 pm (UTC)
Definitely good thoughts. Is she local to me, and could I do anything?
28th-Jun-2010 07:49 pm (UTC)
Nope, she's in Florida; if there's anything people can do long-distance, I'll post, but I can't think of anything right now. Thank you!

I'll send good juju.

People have been extraordinarily generous with me after an unexpected death in my family...so as it happens, I've got a surplus of good wishes, prayers and general good vibes! Consider them yours and your sister's.

Dammit. Of all times for my car to be in the shop.
I don't know when I'll get it back, but when I do, I'll ping you and see if I should go over there and do...whatever.

Until then, your family is in my thoughts.

As much as we may bitch about body/health issues, in some ways it better prepares us for emergencies like this. It has to be scary for someone whose body usually works the way it's supposed to, to have it check out on them unexpectedly!

Sending strength and healing!

I never thought of it that way, but yeah, I can see it now. I was laid up with the flu from hell the other week, and because I'm used to crapping out from fatigue, I already had ways in place to stay in contact with the world and otherwise keep from going nuts. (Well, more nuts.)

Mind you, this situation is far worse than the flu, but you gave me a cool new way to look at things, and thank you for that.

*sends extra love to 'song and co.*

I'll even use the Rameses on those thoughts.
28th-Jun-2010 09:17 pm (UTC)
My best of thoughts go out to both of you. =hugs=

(I was in a similar position a couple years back w/ my mother in the ICU...)

I'm sorry to hear that--sending good thoughts and energy! It's so stressful when things like this happen at a distance and you can't be there. And you sure don't need extra anxiety when you're already on tenterhooks with Elayna off on her big adventure! I hope your sister recovers quickly!

Much support and prayers and glad to hear that she is out of ICU, even if it is only one step out of it.

I do hope she recovers fully and quickly, and with a minimum of trouble.
