- Wedding: May 2011
First of all, this is obviously not my regular username- The people I mention in this post are also visible in my wedding recap photos, and I want to keep their business private.
Also, I will warn in advance, I won’t be replying often for the next couple days- we just moved and I’m stealing Wi-Fi until ours is hooked up…. so it’s hit or miss.
Anyway, yesterday I got some very upsetting news from my dad, which I’m not even supposed to know so I can’t saying anything to anybody involved about it.
Long story short, my sister got Chlamydia while she was pregnant, and my nephew contracted it. She’s taking him to the doctor today, but there is a risk that he may get pneumonia or go blind.
My dad told me last night over the phone even though he wasn’t supposed to (I think she’s wanting to keep it hush-hush until after she sees the doctor and knows more) but I just lost it.
I obviously told Darling Husband because I couldn’t just deal with it alone, and I spent a good hour crying and just going on about how unfair it is and how he’s just a baby and didn’t do anything wrong.
Really, there’s not much I can do. That’s the frustrating part. I’m angry at my sister for sleeping around while she was pregnant, sad that my nephew may have to live with her mistake, and frustrated that I just have to sit and wait for my dad to secretly text me to let me know what’s going on.
Also, I’m totally confused about how to handle it once I am “officially” told what’s going on… Am I supposed to get angry with my sister? Am I supposed to be loving and supportive and just “be there” for her? I just don’t know how I feel right now.
Anyway, I could just use comments of support, and definitely prayers for my sweet little nephew. (Or send good thoughts, if you’re not the praying kind of person).
