I am not even sure where to begin.
The boys had vaccinations and dentist appointments on Wednesday. They both were feeling lousy for a couple of days. I suspect that they knew something was transpiring as well. Jesus was getting ready to bring Maw Maw home.
Thursday my mil was getting worse. We had all seen this before and on many occasions and she had always turned it around. Not this time though. Thursday night my Hubby got in from work about 7pm and called to check in on his Mom. His three sisters were there and had been that day. She was getting worse but the sisters encouraged him to stay with me and the boys and get some rest he had worked an 18 hour day. He stayed and at 5:30 am Friday morning his Dad called (he will be 80 next month). He could barely speak. I asked if if there was time and he said hurry. Hubby made it with 10 minutes to spare. His Mom passed at 6:06 am. I hurried up there after grabbing 20 biscuits at Jack's and dropping the boys at my parents. I got there about 7:45am. She suffered the last half hour or so. She basically drown in her own fluids. It was so hard for Hubby to watch his Mom suffer like that. She was looking at each of her children with pleading eyes. She had not eaten a bit of food in a long time. She had been non responsive in the last 24 hours of life.
There were eight deceased ahead of her. That is why we are waiting. The visitation will be Sunday night. The viewing will be open casket for the family and then closed. The funeral will be Monday at 2pm. She will be cremated.
We ordered flowers today and I am getting clothes ready. I had other errands to run today. Yesterday i spent the majority helping my three sil's clean my in-laws home, doing laundry and receving visitors. Hubby stayed the night with his Dad last night. He is home tonight.
I thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during this time. I am truly exhausted. I did nap today will the boys napped. Thank you in advance for your understanding of my lack of posting. I have been reading your blogs but just cannot comment right now. I hope to catch up with you all soon though.
Please say a special prayer concerning the my sils, my fil and my Hubby. There is some tension right now and i cannot go into details but Hubby is caught in the middle. the sils are half siblings to my Hubby and taking care of my fil seems will fall to Hubby and I. Enough said......please just pray. Pray God will change hearts.
I love you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart. God is so good!!!! Praise HIS name!! Blessings!!!!!!
