Update on Mommy Cat & Some Wal-Mart Goodies

Blahhh......... This is soo hard.
I miss my Mommy Cat so much! I went to Jamaica Hospital in Queens, NY today. I was so afraid to walk in the room. At first I walked in peeked, then stepped back. It took me about 10 mins. to finally walk all the way into her room. It was crowded in there. My Mom's two cousins were there Lisa & Ann. My Aunt Debbie, and my Mommy Cat's two sisters Aunt Jean & Aunt Lo. I looked at Mommy Cat. She looked like she was sleeping. Her color was good. She has a bruise on her cheek. I guess from when she fell when she had the stroke. They turned off the respirator this morning. Keeping her alive with machines was doing her more harm than good. She's breathing on her own w/ a tiny oxygen tube in her nose. I said hi to her. She looked tiny, but Mommy Cat is tall & thin. Everyone wanted my to style her hair (her hair is always on point). I'm the family go to beauty girl, but I couldn't do it. I was afraid so I let Aunt Jean do it. If she makes it through the night she will be transported to hospice care tomorrow morning. Her Dr. explained to us that the hospital isn't the best place for end of life care. The staff is trained to prolong life, and not focus on comfort and keeping her pain free. That is our only concern keeping her pain free and comfortable until she is ready to go........
My Mom is holding up well. She's been surrounded by caring & informative Dr.s and very spiritual family members.
I have the most amazing family in the world. I've received so many phone calls!!! Just love & support. My cousin Krissy called me from KOREA!! Brandon from Ohio, The "Boston Brittons". Everyone has been amazing.......... I would also like to thank all my "blogger girls", for every comment, e-mail, & C-Box Shout! Y'all are so touching.... Everytime I read them and re-read them it brings a smile to my face......
Today was the 1st day since everything happened that I even got dressed and put on my face. It felt good to slap on some makeup and get dressed... Even if it was only to go to the hospital.... I saw some very cute Dr.'s and Techs........ ;)
I stopped at Wal-Mart when I got back to CT, for what I don't know... I find comfort in retail stores and it was too late to wander the mall. So I picked up a few things.....
I got some Dial Yogurt Vanilla & Honey Body Wash for $3. (not pictured, it's in my shower!) This stuff smells yummy and is super mositurizing & foamy. There's a review on Bella Sugar. I also grabbed a Nicole by O.P.I. "Nic's STICKS, in "Where's My Chocolate" for $5.98. It's like a nail polish pen, and I don't like it! I was sooo excited to try it. I'm on a weekly self mani mission, and last weeks was looking embarassingly funky! Maybe it's something you have to get used to, but the brush sucks! You have to "pump" the top for more polish to come down, it was messy, and when you "pump" the polish down and your fingers are painted its akward to "pump" I had to touch it up with polish remover.... I think I'll stash this polish..... >.< I kinda want my $5.98 back. I got some lashes for my "lash stash" so when I'm ready to figure out how to be a lash applying pro I'll be ready. I'm getting the cheapie ones for now, until I have the art mastered..... I also got a Palmer's Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick. I'm addicted to lip chap, and I use that as my lip chap...

Well, I'm going to go check my blogroll & she what you ladies have been up to. I can't sleep. I had a nightmare last night about Mommy Cat & my Mommy and I'm afraid to go to sleep tonight!

Oh I'm still going back and forth my school financial aid situation. So far I'm not getting it reinstated, and the last day for Spring '09 registration is Fri. 1/16. With everything going on with my family. I feel selfish praying to get my Fin Aid. reinstated in time, but I know Mommy Cat wants to see her "baby girl" graduate, and a semster off is out of the question......
