Hi Sandra,
 
Well, it sounds like you spent all the money in the wallet. Do you see a figure for the wallet’s balance anywhere? The remaining balance is all that you’ll be allowed to send out, as Bitcoin wallets cannot go into the negative (debt, as with credit card accounts).
 
I’m not sure about the confirmation part. Are you saying that you sent an amount, which was never confirmed? Or were you expecting to receive an amount, which never confirmed? Either way, it’s necessary to wait for a transaction to be confirmed by miners (entered into the blockchain) before that amount becomes an official part of Bitcoin’s transaction record (aka blockchain).
