Another Goodbye

Woken up by a phone call from local hospital in town where the b/f's mother lives -- she was taken in this morning non-responsive, and sadly, passed away about 9:00 am.

Natural causes, it appears. Was fine at 7am, fell back asleep and when someone checked her at 8:15am, she had no pulse. Can think of worse ways to go.

Crazy, sad day, more sad days to come, I suspect. Mostly sad for the b/f. His dad died in Sept. 2009. This is where it's really hard to be an only child, I see. He has to shoulder a lot on his own.

We're so tired, a long day with arrangements. Is it awful of me to note that despite all this, the special pads the foot doctor put on my tootsies this Monday seem to be really helping my neuroma? Silly thing for me to be crowing about, in the circumstances, but the mind often finds comfort in the mundane.

Hope to be back in time to update for Friday. Be well, all.


  1. Your b/f and family is in my prayers. I'm glad the foot is feeling better! Sometimes you have to look at the positive things in life when you are going through hard times.

  2. My condolences to you and your B/F's family.

    Glad the foot feels better. Sometimes you can just really appreciate the little things like that when times are stressful.

  3. Oh man, I'm sorry, that sucks. Condolences to all!

  4. Oh Ish, I am so very sorry to read this. So very sorry. You and the B/F are in my prayers.

  5. Sorry to hear that. Not that there's ever a good time, but Christmas is a particularly sad time to lose someone with all its connotations of family and togetherness.

    Glad your cloud has a glimmer of a silver lining with the foot feeling better.


  6. Hi Ish, My condolences to you, your b/f and his family! Take care of each other during this diffucult time!

  7. Ish, I'm so sorry to read this. And sorry that I am just now reading this. Sorry I've been absent.

    You and your man are certainly in my prayers.

    Oh, and I'm sure she would have been pleased about your feet.
