Not so smooth

Sorry for the quiet around here. Things are a lil' rough around here right now. Mulitple issues the primary one being Hash's ill grandma. =(

She's been in and out of the hospital for the past few months sick with cancer. Mid-week my MIL called to let us know she's been moved to a 'cold comfort care facility where they basically just keep you comfortable until you pass on. It's like hospice for people that don't have families nearby to help.

Man, getting old and sick blows. She's a really sweet lady and the last of my FIL's parents. I've enjoyed all the time I've had with her, short though it's been.

My FIL's always told me if I needed someone to talk to about losing a 'rent to give him a call. And I've taken him up on it a couple of times. Unfortunately this time of year is always the worst for me since November is when we discovered my dad had cancer. Now is not the time to burden Hash's dad with my issues though.

Ahh well, life goes on. And surprisingly time does heal wounds, some slower then others. There are times I feel tempted to say "Life sucks!". But I can't. It doesn't, it's just tough as shit. *sigh*

Take care,

I'm so sorry to hear about Hatch's grandmother. You're both in my thoughts.

Please let me know if you want to get out of the house and play with yarn with someone for a while.

Sorry about your GIL. It's tough watching someone slip away like that. Hang in there.

Many thanks for the kind support. She's made a small improvement so at least she's not in as much pain as she was.

Thank you again! *hugs*
