So I guess life is shit.

Mmm well it seems a few people do follow my on twitter and here. Anyways 
 
 
Wednesday my mother who works with special needs kids got socked in the stomach by a 19 year old 200 pound boy. We took her to the hospital where she was told she had muscle contusions.  *im not allowed to get mad cause its some special need kid who is not aware of what he does* 
 
Friday she blacked out for a few seconds. And today. About 3 pm she returned to the hospital with 
 
Stomach pain. Soreness. Blurry/spotty vision. Dizzyness and very very low blood pressure. We find out she has lost 3% of her hemoglobin and enough blood to drain the color from her face and hands. We also find out she has internal most likely in her stomach. And to top it off she has something strange going on in her cervix which they think might be cancer.  
 
After many tests including a blood transfusion and saline being pumped into her stomach and pulled out to see if it had blood in it (Which it did. Older blood) She is told she will be admitted and stay the night. We arrived at 3 pm and I left a bit after 10 pm.  
 
I sit now writing this blog to say that the world sucks and we all get a nice sucky piece of sucky pie at one time or another. Lucky for us she will get FULL workers comp from where she works and they will cover the bill. Of course if this means she will have to stop working my wage of 9.20 an hour with about 20 hours a week will have to support us till she is better.  
 
 
Again Sucky word. Sucky pie. Im not that hungry right now.  
 
 
Edit 
 
I want to add ALL the computers at the hospital seem to run on XP. Not sure why I noticed that... 
 
More edits 

 
This morning my mom is gonna have a camera put down her throat to look in her stomach. 
 
 
Also when this all happened the kid who hit her does NOT have a personal aid to watch him. And there was 4 people in the area that saw what happened and did nothing when my mother called for help.  
 
 
UPDATE! 
 
 
Turns out mother had a ulcer which started to bleed.  
 
so this is what the doctor says. 
 
The punch caused her to come in. Where they gave her meds that bothered the ulcers. Which then caused it to bleed. 
 
 
And the way I see it. If they kid never hit her. She would not need the meds and there would still have been no bleeding.

That's blows man.
 
 
I hope she gets better.

That's awful :/  
 
What about the guy that punched her? Are the police out looking for him yet? 

Posted by FluxWaveZ

Cancer?  I doubt that happened because of the guy's punch...  But that really sucks.  I hope she gets better.

Posted by Hailinel

Good to know that she's getting full worker's compensation for this.  I hope things manage to work themselves out.

He is special needs. He is not aware of what he did.

They found the cancer when they did a cat scan of her stomach.

Oh man. My thoughts are with you.  
 
Like my boss says, "Life is just one big shit sandwich, and every day we are forced to take another bite." 
 
I hope your mother makes a full recovery. Stay close to your friends and family in this rough time, you guys will all need the support from each other and for your mother.

@The_Laughing_Man:
Sorry bout ur mom my friend. My mom actually does the same thing but works with younger kids. Still, she tells me about kids using their sissors as weapons and chairs thrown around, tough job I guess.

What could they do, though?  He's mentally unstable.  My mom works with people like that, too.  I suppose that's one of the dangers of working with people like that...
Posted by FizzleNizzleBear

That sucks 
 
On the bright side you probably wouldn't have discovered the cancer had that not happened

Ah, I had assumed some random person off the street did it. I sincerely hope that she turns out okay.  
 
Also, could this possibly be a blessing in disguise? If the cancer had been there for a while, neither of you had known about it until this incident.

All they can do it " try and find out why he had this outburst" I also now know he is known for this kind of crap. And its happened before. But no one has gotten hurt.

Reading that reminds me of when my mom woke me up at 6 in the morning with stomach pains, 5 hours later, I take her to the hospital and find out that a cancerous growth on her bowel burst. Of course the cancer spread to her liver and now she only has a few months left to live.  

I hope that the situation with your mom works out better then mine has.  
 
But yeah, life does suck sometimes. 

Posted by OllyOxenFree

I hope she gets well soon, duder.  Sucks.

Posted by JJWeatherman

That kid seems like a dick. Also, he should be a god damned boxer. 
 
Hope your mom gets better.

Posted by Interfect
@The_Laughing_Man:  The hospitals near me run XP as well. I totally noticed it for some reason when I was getting X-Rays. Hopefully your mom gets better.
Posted by Death_Unicorn

My condolences are with you.

Posted by Sweep

Giving people cancer by punching them is the most horrifying super power I have ever heard of. 

 
  
 
 

But seriously, sorry to hear that mate - hope everything works out for you.

We've been talking a lot on AIM, dude you know I feel for you.  It sucks and I don't know anything to say that could make you feel better.  Just hang in there.

I know it's horrible, but this made me laugh so fucking hard.

This. They may not of found the cancer if she wasn't punched sometimes you have to look at the glass half full.

It took you this long to figure out that life is horrible? Don't most people usually get Kefka's theme jammed into their heads by the time they leave middle school?

@The_Laughing_Man:  
That sucks man.  I definitely extend my sympathy.  Hope everything goes all right.

Life sucks for sure. Like how my mom had breast cancer.

I hope she gets well soon.

What can we learn from this? Don't work with special needs kids. 

Posted by Ryax

Also, don't smoke when you're pregnant and you won't shit out a retard baby.

My condolences man, that's really rough - wishing your mother all the best and a speedy recovery.

Or rather, that even those who have a good enough nature to do so don't always get what they deserve.  
 
His mother probably chose her job for a reason, and not all special needs kids are the same. Don't generalise, especially on such hateful grounds.

Sorry to hear this, man. It's definitely unfortunate. However, on the bright side, if it turns out she does have cancer, I imagine it's in it's early stages, and perhaps if it wasn't for this incident, she might not have found out until later on when it would be harder to cure. I'm not trying to be a jerk here, but really, it could end up working out good for her in the long run.

"That retard saved my mom's life." 
 
Think about it. You'll be able to say that now.
Posted by crusader8463

This may be a blessing if it leads to finding something she other wise would not have known about until it was possibly too late. I know it probably won't give you any comfort and is meaningless coming from stranger #5876 on the internet posting here, but I hope things work out in the end.

Posted by EdTwo

I wish only the best for you and your mother

Posted by DrRandle

It's still much, much better than the alternative.

Posted by arab_prince
@The_Laughing_Man: Sounds like a blessing in disguise. They discovered the cancer which may be they wouldn't have if she didn't get hit. Anyways, I'm sorry for your situation and sincerely hope for it all to work out. Life is a sucky pie, but there is also an awesome sundae right after :)

@The_Laughing_Man: hey duder, thats terrible, but keep in mind shes probs going to be getting some of the best care in the world. Keep your chin up.

And yet, no reference to the Dead Milkmen?

Posted by Gamer_152

I love Anamanaguchi's Helix Nebula. Sorry to hear about your mother, that's terrible stuff and I hope she turns out okay.

Oh shit.. 
Huge bummer man, hope you all get through it allright :/

Update. 
 
 
I just got a call this morning from my mom telling me they are gonna stick a camera down her throat to check her stomech. Fun fun fun. 

Posted by ProfessorEss

That sucks dude :(
Really hope things clear up.

Posted by GunslingerPanda

Um, so the kids punch helped them find the cancer? Or did I read that wrong?
The phrase "blessing in disguise" comes to mind.
 
Sucks about the cancer though, bro. Hope she gets rid of it.

Posted by Mrskidders

Maybe the punch in the stomach is a blessing in disguise.  If it has meant that they catch the potential cancer at an early stage then it would be far more treatable.  Someones you have to look in from the outside to see the bigger picture.

Ya I understand that part. But my biggest issue was that she was punched. And that the kid was not given an aid to watch voer him. AND the fact that 4 people in the area did not help my mother even when she called for help.

I would of fucking massacred that special needs kid, who gives a fuck if hes a tard, you punch my family I'm going to beat the living shit out of you.
 
But anyways I'm sorry about your mother.

That is how I felt. I was so mad. But she kept saying he was unaware of what he did.  
 
Then maybe I can beat up who ever is in charge of the school. 
Posted by Shirogane

Can't really blame the kid i guess, if he really doesn't know what he's doing. Well, unless it's his fault he ended up like that in the first place... 
Well, hopefully it's not cancer or it's not too bad. At least you found out now i guess. 
 
Man, if someone named The_Laughing_Man is telling us life sucks, we're totally screwed. Or maybe it's an ironic name...hmm.
Posted by ZeForgotten

Better it got caught now than later. 
I'm still waiting for my own operation so they can get it out of there. 
 
All my happy thoughts go to you, your mother and the rest of the family. 
Keep your chins up and punch a special kid back, you've earned it

Posted by harvey_the_pooka

I´m sorry dude! As a dad to a son who is special needs I feel like I have to tell you that I have the deepest appreciation who work with kids like that. My son is only 4 but has more strength than his 9 year old brother. He doesn´t want to hurt you but he just can´t control his strength like a "normal" person. 
 
I can only thank ANYBODY who is working with special needs kids because do care for them sometimes as much as the parents do.  
I really hope your mom is gonna get better soon and will fight the cancer. Eventhough I don´t know her pls tell her I appreciate that she works with special needs kids.
