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.

"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."


I sort of agree with this, at least a bit anyways. However someone needs to put down mr. 200 pounds over there. I'm sure someone can arrange an accident at a later time, whatever that means.

Don't dwell on the bad, find the good in everything that happens. Bad things happen to good people, that is just the way of things. 
 
Cheer up, and I hope your mother recovers fully.

Sorry, man. My mother is also a paraeducator and I've always hated her job. She is a wonderful patient woman who has done a lot of good for the school district but it's heart wrenching to see her come home with black eyes or a broken nose because one her kids lost control. I've tried to convince her to quit her job many times but she's so close to retirement; she just wants to hit the 20 year mark. 
 
I'm really sorry to hear about your mom though. That really really sucks and I can't even imagine what you might be going through. Hang in there, sounds like you're being the perfect son right now, taking care of her and staying by her side.

Pfffff... 
 
At least, like others have said, the punch could have turned out a good thing if they actually discover that his mom has a cancer because of it.

Life sucks sometimes, it's true but the bad times are what put the good things in life into greater perspective.  Appreciate that you have a mother still and the opportunity to help her through this difficult period.  As cornball as it sounds, there is good to be found in almost all situations no matter how tragic.  We just might not see it until much later in life.  That thought won't make today any easier, I know so stay strong and remain positive if you can.

The older you get, the more you realize that life is a series of challenges. I hope this one works in your favor.

fuck, I know there's not much to be said that can help but I sincerely hope your mum recovers fast and that there's very little long term damage. With any luck the cervical strangeness won't be cancer, if I was the praying type I'd spare one for you and your mum.

Always fucking pisses me off when I hear that people were getting robbed/beaten up/harassed or in trouble and no one around them helped, I feel like if I was ever in that situation I would always help whoever that was no matter how bad the situation they're in. People need to have regard for human life and it sickens me that you can stand by watching people cry for help and not help. That's a reason why the MW2 terrorist scene was really annoying to me, I don't see how anyone could stand by and let an airport full of civilians be killed and not stop the person who's doing it while they have the power to do so, really made me hate the character , *spoilers for mw2 coming up :*

When we went to visit her this morning she was off to get her stomach scooped. So I left her a pillow I bought her. A stuffed tiger she loves. And some limp balm. 
 
 
Right now we are waiting to hear back about what her stomach looks like

As bad as it sounds, I probably would have sought out and punched the retarded kid back. So good on you for not being as insane as I am.

That is indeed sucky. I guess if it turns out to be cancer, it could turn out to be a good thing in the end, since they might not have found it if she hadn't been hurt. Still, a very unfortunare situation. I hope everything turns out well :).

Because he feels he is a part of this community and is reaching out to his peers for support. It is human nature to need support from others. It's not that complicated bud.

It hardly seems fair for someone who helps less fortunate people to get hit by the very people she's helping.  Anyway,  hope she gets better soon.

Also sock that retard in his. If he's done it before he needs to learn his lesson, it doesn't matter if he's mentally ill, it'll teach him.

Yeah, seriously, if they catch cervical cancer now, you should shake that kids hand for punching your mom in the stomach.  Better to find it now than wait until it's terminal.

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.  "

Sounds to me like the kid did your mom a favor. If she had not gotten punched she might not have know she has cancer or I could be way off. Hope she gets better, I know what its like to have your mom in the hospital. My mom had a kidney transplant about 6 years ago. Very stressful.

They are mentally unstable, they do not know whats going on. Its not like the kid thought "Hmmm i am going to punch this lady in the stomach because i can get away with it!" It was more like he got angry for some reason and just let it out because he does not know how to control it like normal people. 
 
Anyways I am really sorry to hear about your mother, just stay positive and try to keep her spirits up. Keeping a positive outlook can do wonders for both you and your mother.

I know he probably didn't do it on purpose but he has to know somehow that it wasn't right. Just like kids you know sometimes they do things that they shouldn't without knowing and you have to tell them.

Depending on the severity of his condition he may understand what he did is wrong, but it doesnt matter if he knows. He most likely acted on his emotions instantly and did what he did.  
 
I am obviously assuming things here, i have no idea if he acted out on anger or what, but hearing that he is mentally challenged makes me think he did not intend for this to happen, even if you punish him that wont stop him from acting out. It just reminds me of Lenny from Of Mice and Men, he was a good person and understood right from wrong, but when he got scared or angry he did not know how to control himself.

Best of luck to your mother bro.  These things have a way of working out sometimes.  I find its best to try and not focus on the dissapointing things of life, because there are a whole bunch of em, try and focus on what you do have and enjoy it. 
Best wishes!!!
