https://getyarn.io/yarn-clip/579e48c2-21b5-4630-ae73-a6eabf0f5c28 My mother-in-law passed away this past Saturday. Wake was today, funeral tomorrow. She was 63 years old. It doesn't make any sense. I got back from my Vegas trip, she was here helping out (more on that later). She had a deep cough, nothing too bad. A week later she calls her doctor who prescribes here antibiotics and cough medicine. She was going to go yesterday to the doctor to be seen. She woke up Saturday, had a hard time breathing, my SIL called 911. We all were thinking, ok she will get meds, may Oxygen and be home. She died in the ambulance on the way to the ER. They said her lungs filled with fluid and her heart gave out. We will never know what really was the issue. An autopsy was 2k, and maybe I should have pushed harder for it, but my wife and BIL, SIL didn't want it. And it was a crazy day. Piece of mind may have helped. Who knows. It was so sudden. My dad had cancer for years and suffered. My FIL had cancer and even though he did in a car accident was suffering and near the end. We could justify that. This.... this we can't. Fuck... My MIL lost her first husband to cancer, my wife's dad, young as well. The tragedy this woman had, and she had the strength to get beyond it all. I don't know how to feel all I do know is I am pissed. I have so much anger inside me I cannot describe it. Looking back there were signs I suppose. I sent her and my wife to Vegas in October to see the Stones (cancelled show), and my wife said she had hard time getting around. We assumed it was her hips or legs. My wife really feels bad, blaming herself for not pushing her more to get it checked out. I know it is natural but I do not need her feeling this way. I really feel bad for my son (6). He lost 2 grandpas and her in 3 years. My dad March 15, her husband Feb 16 and now this. It's too much for a little boy to go through. I know it's life and there are lessons he will learn but it is much too young for such lessons. My MIL was a wonderful lady. There was never anything she would not do for her children. Always there to watch the kids help us out. My SIL is 23, works a min wage job,lived with her... well life has to come at her fast. She can handle it, but we will have to help her "adult" really fucking quick. Get her a condo with what we have left after we sell the house ETC.... The hard part really hasn't begun. The worse part is after my FIL died, she finally had some money ( they delivered papers) but with his death the house was paid off, she could travel she could be comfortable, she was finally retired... it all lasted less than a year (see clip this is what I am talking about...) So please people if you feel ill, see a doctor. If you can retire, fucking do it, enjoy life. Cause you never know when it will all be taken from you. As @Packer told me when I told him, you are supposed to out live your parents. That is life. But this one is hard. We have a long road ahead of us as a family to get past this. I ask that you please pray that we will be able to. If you don't pray, keep us in your thoughts. Thank you in advance and sorry for the rambling but this has helped, even a little bit.
