My mom in still in the hospital after first chemo on Friday. Not tolerating it well, w/ nausea and vomitting. Seemed to be better yesterday, taking sips of liquid. Overnight, I don't know why, but they put a nasogastric tube in to suction out all secretions in her stomach. I cannot get anymore details than that. My mother will not let the doctors talk to me and give me info - she says she wants my father to, and when I talk to my father he is yelling and screaming at me "I DON"T KNOW!" when I ask him questions, such as "why the tube", "what did they say" etc... My father is losing it. He told me to NOT come to the hospital because he feels I might upset my mother if she sees me get upset - and I am to NOT call him. He said he will call me whenever he knows something - he is w/ her now at the hospital. I asked him to go find the nurse, and he said he couldn't track her down - I suggested he go to the nsg station and ask to speak to the doctor regarding his wifes condition, and he yelled "I'm not doing that" and slammed the phone down. I could not make it through my day at work because I am terrified of what is or isn't going on. I am at home, alone, w/ no info, no answers, and instructions to not call or visit my mother. My sister is in NH and I have been calling and texting her all day, and she has not returned any of it.
