Hi all. Though I haven't posted in awhile I still read your posts every day. Things have been going okay with my 20 year old Difficult Child. She found a place to live and was doing relatively well. We have been getting along for the most part and she calls home more often than ever. Today she called me from urgent care saying she is being sent to the emergency room for suspected appendicitis. She was there with a friend and told me not to come. I'm 10 hours away from her. I haven't heard anything from her since 2pm est. and I'm getting worried. I have the friends phone number but it's going to voice mail. Her phone is going to voice mail. I want to respect her wishes not to come but I also want to get in my car and leave to go to her now. Ugh. Thanks for listening . I hope to have an update from her soon. The hospital she went to is a wee reputed place in a large city so that gives me some comfort but not much!
