Cruzer, so sorry. I think you and your family are being tested. Thinking of you.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

Man -o-man. So sorry. Your Mom OK? I know she isn't but she is really getting slammed. Things aren't supposed to happen all at once. You are supposed to have some time in between these things to heal.

Joyner, you already back from shopping? Saw a good T-shirt for you.
"Don't make me use my Librarian voice"

I think it's going to take a long time to get back to normal.

If you go to the Signals website, there's two pages of things for readers. (pg. 54&55). Ever hear of Bookopoly?

Ohhhh! I love lots of the shirts. The nightshirt looks like my TBW (to be read) pile on my bedside table. I love the "don't make me use my librarian voice" shirt! Never heard of bookopoly but it looks like fun.

If I was in the mall with my kids and they spotted a bookstore, they used to take my arm and pull me past.

Yep, husband and daughter never want me to go into a bookstore. "We'll never get her out of there!"

MIL update - The cancer is too large for surgery so my mother-in-law is starting chemo on Monday. It is going to be very aggressive, and of course we are way to far away to do anything. So I am asking for prayers and good thoughts and all that stuff.

You've got it. I know how hard it is to be far away when something's wrong. You add guilt onto the worry.

I am getting more "used to it", sadly. We don't live near any family, so when stuff like this happens, there never is much we can do for anyone. It is a very different situation for my sister-in-law, she lives within driving distance of all of her family, but MIL is far away for both of us (kinda between us actually). So she isn't sure what to do and feels more guilty right now. I am going to be e-mailing her soon. Both of us are coordinating a trip to visit MIL, but it was slated for November, we may move it.

So sorry Cruzer.
Your mom is going to beat herself up for not being there. Not now, after your dad is better.
There is no way she could be there. She made the right choice.
The whole situation is totally unfair.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

My mom goes through days were she keeps telling me how her dad (who was 95) asked her to stay in the hospital with him and she went home. He died that night. Of old age!!! But she still gets upset about it. Not so much at the time. Now, as she gets old.


Cruzer, when your dad is better and your mom starts thinking about this, you tell her the I said she did they only thing she could.
Matter of fact, you can tell her the entire woot community said she did the only thing she could do.

It was actually her mother that told her to wait to see what happens.

She's got a level head, for a woman, and she knew that she couldn't be in two places at once, and I'll remind her of that.

Even if she did leave yesterday, he wouldn't have talked to her and she would have had an hour with him before he passed.

Nurse said that it was quick. I don't know that it helps any to know that, but we know it.

I can't imagine being in her shoes. I'm not sure that she could handle it any better than she has. She just has to remember that he had a good, long life. He was well into his 80's. She also knows that we are there for her whenever she needs us. I'm am glad that we were here for her, though.

I am so mad that my dad can't go, though. He was just as heart broken as she was. She told him this morning and they cried together. Even when he was trying to tell his dad he was choking up. There is one thing that I kinda hate is that I don't cry very often, and somehow, I know I want to, and I just don't. I'm not sure who I got that from.

My grandmother was that way. She told me not to be upset with her when she didn't cry at my mom's funeral/death... that she just doesn't cry. Not me, I blubber at everything.

Cruzer, will they postpone the memorial service until your mom can be there? If your dad (or mom) can't make it, get someone to video tape it for you. They can send a short personal memory/message for someone to read during the service as well. I found it very healing to write a message for my brother's funeral even though I was there for it.
