I’ve been in the hospital overnight, entire 24 hr shifts (i should be a nurse) but for shabbos, I need to find a place to stay nearby, meals, places for my kids or a babysitter. Even in my state of exhaustion I need to be mommy, wife and caregiver.January 1, 2014 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #996750aishes choverParticipant
Sounds tough. If you let me know which hospital, I may be able to help with accommodations/meals/places for kids/babysitters.

Many hospitals in NYC area have Bikur Cholim.Also you might want to contact a local Chabad house or young Israel near the Hospital,Maybe they can helpJanuary 1, 2014 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #996753amichaiParticipant
you cannot do 24 hr. shifts, unless I missunderstood. maybe the local bikur cholim can also arrange for people to come be with the person who is ill so you can rest a little. wishing a complete refua.January 2, 2014 2:15 am at 2:15 am #996754oomisParticipant
Refuah shelaima to your choleh. Bikur Cholim is amazing, and the chaplain should be able to set you up for Shabbos. Many hospitals have a Bikur Cholim room for such overnight guests. And now is a good time for your neighborhood to pull together on behalf of your kids. Don’t be shy to ask for help. And people reading these posts who see such a need in their community, please don’t WAIT to be asked. OFFER your help in a concrete way.January 2, 2014 2:24 am at 2:24 am #996755
Thank you for your concern due to the severity of the illness the doctors only allow relatives over 18 to visit. That might be the policy with everything. My husband can’t take off that much. I’m sure I’m not the only one doing the 24 shifts. I”YH my son will be discharged soon hopefully, we’ll find out when the doctors come back from their holiday vacation.January 2, 2014 3:17 am at 3:17 am #996756🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
Refuah Shlaima to your son. Hashem should bless your family with the physical and emotional strength you need to get through this.
