When it rains, it pours...... Answered

Early this morning, during another bout with pneumonia, my Mother in law (my wife's Mom) passed away. I am at a loss for both words and feelings at the moment, please forgive me if I seem "absent of mind" in the next few days before my own hospital stay.

A very dear friend of my wife and myself has passed yesterday....I am preparing for the funeral today, and may sit shivah with the remaining son if invited to do so. *sigh*

To put things in perspective: death is life's way of telling us to wake up and start to DO something, rather then bide our time here, whether at work or home. The great equalizer

I mourn your loss, and hope you feel better soon. Death is hard - and although I don't know how you feel now, when my friend was struck by a speeding verizon truck, I felt horrible. Keep her memories with you, and she will always be alive in spirit.

Don't worry Mickael. I'm convinced everything will be okay for you. I phoned to God this morning to talk about you, and she told me you'll have to stay among us for a long long time. (Hmm ... Now that I'm rethinking about it, I hope she did not mean she will kill all of us at once this Monday ... Someone remember for when is planed the end of the world ???) ;o)

I am so sorry Goodhart. :( I know it hurts, having just lost my grandparents and two uncles I can relate a little. Words cannot describe the feeling. Tell your wife also I am sorry for her loss. I wish I could do something.

She is partially consoled by the fact that she was suffering with pneumonia and had troubles breathing....and now, is at rest and suffers no longer. Thank you for your thoughts.

Lots of things happing this weekend, I just hope she can hold herself together when Monday comes. She has been warned that if she comes in to see me Monday, I will not be looking like I normally do.....I will be a wee bit puffy and have tubes hanging out from all over me. She may want to wait until Tuesday....

I have been told that they do not wire the chest closed anymore after the heart surgery (hows that for a complete 180o turn on a subject?) but they glue you together. A friend of mine from the south said that is how they do everything now.....they glue it, and if the glue don't hold, they duct tape it LOL. Um, I think I will pass on the tape :-)

I told the doc that, since I am just a "Systems operator" and do not lift anything heavier then my fingers and a few sheets of paper, with very little or no stress involved, I should be able to work. But he insists that I do not....cabin fever, here I come ! LOL I work for a small insurance company.....the thing is, I work 2nd shift, when there is NO ONE in the building, and they prefer that I don't die and lie there til someone finds me in the morning :-) 8 hours after my shift ends.
