Husband with cancer,sisterinlaws,and furnerals.
Hello to all,my husband has stomach cancer and has been on chemo now for 3 months.He has lost his beard and hair and now wears a beanie.
WELL TODAY a furneral was held for his sister in law WHO died from lung cancer.
My husband wanted to go TO THE FURNERAL AND during the service he was sad at times AND moaned softly,that only i could understand.
I had my arm around the back of HIS chair and stroked his back.
One of the sons of his deceased mother,took his 3 year old daughter to view his deceased mother in the coffin.STRANGE I THOUGHT.
ANYWAY after the service, and while we was standing out side of the chapel,ONE of my husbands sisters came up to me,AND ASKED ME, IF I WAS LOOKING AFTER HIM,I TOOK IT SHE WAS REFERRING TO HER BROTHER,MY HUSBAND.
I HAD BEEN TOLD RECENTLY TO LOOK AFTER MY HUSBAND, BY ANOTHER ONE OF MY HUSBANDS SISTERS,
(SO I HAD A REPLY READY, FOR SUCH AN OCCASION IF IT SHOULD ARISE).
I REPLIED WITH, HE HAS NOT SACKED ME YET,
I COULD SEE SHE WAS A BIT PERPLEXED WITH MY ANSWER,AND AFTER A LITTLE WHILE,SHE THEN REPLIED WITH, PERHAPS HE COULD NOT FIND A SACK.
SHE DID NOT EVEN HAVE THE GOOD SENSE TO ASK MY HUSBAND HOW HE WAS,OR TO EVEN EMBRACE HIM.
OVER THE PAST 40 YEARS OF OUR MARRIAGE,ALL OF HIS SISTERS,( BAR ONE )HAS SAID HURTFULL THINGS TO ME,BUT AT THIS TIME,ITS REALLY BELOW THE BELT,AND NOT HELPING ANYONE.
BEST WISHES FROM JOY.
