Can I do anything rite?

It sure does not seem it......

I have been trying so hard to find a way to get Angel HOME!!

I was finally told yesterday in a Meeting,,,,If I came up with 24 hour care......I could take Angel home.....

I talked to Angels Dad last nite on the Internet and he asked me if that was a really good idea .......and I told him yes......

He was like what if she Coded,,,,,You are an hour from the Hospital,,,,,,

I said what happens when we move out of Province......?

Then he told me he would Support in in what ever I wanted to do,,,,,But he knew if somthing happened to Angel I would blame myself,(he is rite).....

Then I asked him if he would blame me he told me NO...For some reason I do not belive that as he is so concerned with her coming home.......

He thinks I should wait until she is off the Vent for some time,,,,How do I know if that will ever happen......It has happened during the day and she is back on it 24 hours,,,,,,

It seems no matter how hard I try nothing is good enough.....

I even told Angels Dad,I would work 6 hours a day instaead of 8......

I am ready to toss my hands and SAY I GIVE UP I CANT DO IT ANY MORE!!......

I dont do anything.....I dont go any where,,,,,,,,

My life is Angel and Work,,,,,,

Today Ron and I were suppose to go out on our Motor Bikes,,,,,Now I am even to Depressed to do that and Guilty that I will not be Spending the day with Angel,,,,,,,,,,

I even had it so that her Rn had yesterday off so I could enjoy some "me time"..... (HEr RN is working today)I think I will just spend the day in bed.......
