I am going to pour this out because I am so frustrated. My friend, my daughters coach, went into the hospital Monday with suspected food poisoning. It turned out that she had a ruptured brain aneurysm. They took her in for surgery the next day she was still talking and seemed normal (from what I heard) right up to surgery time. They were apparently able to rouse her following the surgery, but she hasn't been awake at all since. She was away from home visiting family when it happened and now the family is telling us we must keep this a secret, that we may send no flowers, cards or letters. That we may not come and see her and we may not call them for information. Basically it feels like a big "butt out".
It can't be kept a secret, it was all over the gym before we in the office were even told what was going on .It's a very small town. People keep asking what's going on and we don't know what to tell them. We don't even know if the gym will be open, cause she owns it. All we can do is pray.
I'm not supposed to be telling this stuff per the families wishes, but since no one here knows who I am talking about I figured it was safe to vent here. Besides I figure the more prayers on her behalf the better
