Any good thoughts send our way....

Death comes in 3's right? If so we are done with our 3 for a while. A few weeks ago a family friend passed away. Then this past monday we had a call from the hospital. Dennis' (Jacks step dad who lives with us) sister was in the hospital with chest pains. Well that evening they went to do the camera through your hear valves procedure and she coded on the table. She never even knew how sick she truely was.

So yesterday we have a house full of people, jacks daughter and kids, who were up for Pattys funeral. And as they were leaving they notice an ambulance on our street. We look out and see it is at our neighbors house. Nancy, Dennis' best friend, a close family friend has been ill with throat cancer for about a year. But she looked great when we saw her on tuesday. She was really making a come back.... after her surgeries (including the placement of a trac ring). Apparently had fallen asleep, rolled over on her oxygen tube and sufficated her self. At least that is how her very distressed son put it to us last night.

So our family has taken 2 major hits inside of 5 days. And i am just beside myself as to what to do. All i am doing is sitting here knitting socks. knitting socks and not thinking. hell i am not even watching tv, which is very odd to me. Dennis' sister passing away didn't phase me to much. But Nancy did, she was a family friend. and we had our falling out in the begining. She was very protective of Jack and was worried that i was just using him for a baby. She didn't know me then. But once she knew me, we honestly be came friends. And she was a friend to maggie. They had some great times this past summer. And i am mourning that all. Yet another wonderful soul that maggie will not get to know and love. but i know that nancy loved her.

ok i am babbling now and i need to get running i have crap to get done today.

i am sorry you are so sad now. do what i do, think of something really silly nancy did, and laugh your butt off. Then remember how lucky you were to have known someone who can make you happy even after they are gone.

My thoughts are with you, Kayt. Times like these are hard, so just do what you need to do and feel like doing to get through.
