Squishy's girls aren't that woman's grandkids. I think that's the S.O. who killed himself.

2 weird, sad things.
1. Hospital bed arrives tomorrow. I am not supposed to be alone at night any more. While they look into a temporary hospice bed someplace until my mom can move in (they give Ralph about two weeks), i m supposed to ask friends to volunteer/sign up for one sleepover... Ideally, enough friends, each person would do only one night of sleeping in my comfy bed while I am out on the hospital bed That just isn't something I expected to have to do. Thought Ralph would be DEAD by now.
2. We don't think I will make it to Nick's April 23 birthday but I haven't told him that yet. Nurse thinks this is as good as I'm going to be for a while.
Reality sucks, reality sucks.

We were married at the time of his death- almost 20 years ago. And it was natural causes; he had a virus as an infant that damaged his heart. He had been suffering from what he thought were panic attacks but it was his heart going arrhythmic. Died in his sleep and she found him in the morning.

But I suspect she is ill. I'm going to let the freak out settle down and call her back this weekend. She's a lovely lady and I think I owe her at least that.

I did accept it but there have been no postings. I'm going to go lurk and see what I can see.

Sorry for speaking out of turn, but I did want to clear up that your kids have a paternal,grandmother. Again, am sorry. But didn't you have an S.O. Who committed suicide? A fiancÚ?

It's cool Ang. I am not so self-important that I believe everyone will remember my stories.

Thankfully, I've never had to deal with a suicide of a loved one. I don't remember who that might have happened to tho.

And my lurking on the 1st MIL's husband's page did not reveal much. Except that there are no pictures of Jane and a LOT of picture of him with sweet young things. From his posts, it seems like they're still married, as he mentions her and the things she's baked, but no pics. Strange.

My sister? About to turn 31, living with my dad, working at the mall part time, a BMW's worth of student loan payments over her head for three unused college degrees, hasn't dated since Dubya's administration? She's good.

I can't believe the surrealness of what you're living.

You never know. You just might make it to his birthday (and if we could all will it to happen, definitely would). I don't know him, but I bet he just wants to hold onto you as long as he can without you being in too much pain and agony. In the long run, I think it's a safe bet that he's not thinking of his birthday, really. He's giving you something to look forward to in the future, maybe.

Be sure to set your privacy setting to what you're comfortable with them seeing.

My SIL we only saw for 3 days at Chrismas, which was more than enough. I guess all is on track for them to get hitched in July. *shrug* We haven't been dragged in to any planning, and I am a-okay with that. I guess her fiance's mom has been helping out with it a lot, financially and otherwise. The distance with them being farther away this year has been great. J and I are getting our relationship back on track again.

You get kicked out of the petting zoo.
