Fear of the Unknown
Mike's aid has not shown up for the 4th day in a row. The agency she works for called us on Saturday and said she called in "sick" for Sat. and Sun. This morning, the agency called me and told me that Mary called in "sick" again today. I stressed to them that I need to know what is happening with her. Is she really sick? Did she quit? Will she be coming back? I didn't go into work Friday or today and who knows what will happen if an aid can't be found. The stress of the unknown is horrible. I am VERY concerned that if the agency finds someone, they will not be able to get Mike to eat or drink. Will this hasten Mike's decline?
