Mom is 3 weeks sober and now dad is in the hospital

Unread postby LALA0554 » Wed Mar 14, 2007 7:23 pm

My mom has been sober for 3 weeks now and today my mom and dad went for a annual physical. Now my dad is in the hospital because of heart conditions. I am afraid that this will set my mom back ten steps. She was a chronic alcoholic for 30 years. I am an hour or so away from them and I feel helpless. I am also afraid becuase this is her first night home alone. Things are supposed to be getting better and I feel like they are making a turn for the worst. :(

hey lala0554, that sounds like a setback and 3 weeks is not a long time. do you know if she went to a meeting tonight? a support system is so important in her situation. did you get to talk to her? life throws crazy stuff at you when all you need is peace to get better.

How is your Mom doing?
