Living my new normal

too soon...

  • Oh Nicole,

    I'm so sorry. I dread the day that it's our turn to take care of my parents or in laws medically like this. I know way too much about doctors, hospitals, etc. and while I am set up to help intellectually, I'm not sure that I'll be able to handle it emotionally.

    You are right, this is too soon for y'all to have to deal with this, especially with your MIL being in another state. I'm sure it will be hard to leave C.

    And I have a hard time feeling bad for people who don't take care of themselves. Wow she hasn't seen a dr since the 80s? yikes.

    Good luck and keep us updated!


  • I don't think this post sounds selfish at all, I think it sounds honest. I don't blame you for just wanted some peace and quiet and a drama free existence. After Jerry and I lost Arianna it seemed like there was something major going on every few months. It added to the exhaustion and really challenged my sanity. I will be sending you lots of positive thoughts for not only your mother in law but also for you and your husband and C.


    p.s. If C is anything like my kids a few days with Grandma and Grandpa are always welcomed!
