When will things get easier

  • Oh, sweetie.  I wish I knew what to say...   I hope this passes quickly and he pulls things back together.  I don't know what I would do in your situation, I can't imagine having to walk away from a man I love, but I also can't imagine letting my kids have to weather the storm too.  Just follow your heart, it will lead you to the right place.

    How about a huge hug at the least?!?



  • I'm so sorry that you guys had a set back.  I think it takes a great act of love to set clear limits with people when they put themselves in harms way.  I will cross my fingers that this is the only stumbling block you hit.

    Happy Early Birthday!  And wow.. excited to be on the Bone Marrow List.. ouch!  You are a saint!!


  • Well...  I can't imagine how difficult a setback would be, especially with everything else that's been going on - getting back into your own place, holidays coming up, etc.  I'm sure all those things are difficult for him as well, maybe that would explain it, not that it would be an excuse or anything...

    It does take a lot of courage and a lot of love for you to tell him what you did.  I'm not sure what I'd do in that circumstance.  I'm not sure I'd even be strong enough to hang in there the first time around!  I hope that things straighten back out and go in the right direction from here on out.

    Happy Birthday on Tuesday!!!  The bone marrow list???  You really are amazing!  



    P.S.  You know you can call me if you ever need or want to talk! 3

  • Wow Samantha, I'm just now getting a chance to catch up on your blog.  I really dont know what to say.  You and I have had some conversations about everything and I had no idea that he had a setback. I'm so sorry I have been mia, just kinda have some things going on to.  Please know that I am here for you any time.

    Love you,


  • Oh one more thing...that is absolutely amazing that you are signing up to be a marrow donor.  You truly are an amazing woman Samantha!

  • Oh Samantha, I'm so sorry this is so hard for your husband.  I know you love him and want to be there for him and that this is difficult for you all.

    I pray that he pulls through and is able to be there for you as you've been there for him.

    Yay for the signing up for the National Bone Marrow registry.  I did that about 15 years ago.  You're awesome!
