Okay. This is getting to be a little too much to handle.

I know some of you are aware of how bad the summer/fall was with my mom dying... and then it continued at work, but I sat here this morning at home, with yet ANOTHER piece of bad news.

This has been my summer:

July 14 - mom dies

One week later - sister-in-law's mother dies (I was close to her as well, for over 25 years)

October 10 - my dear friend and coworker (I have supervised her for 10 years), from leaving work on Wednesday, to Thursday, suffered 31 strokes, three of them massive, from undiagnosed, untreated hypertension. She was just moved from the hospital yesterday to a nursing home where she will probably spend the rest of her life. She is paralyzed on the right side, can't talk, can barely feed herself, and only is cognizant about half of the time. We were all shattered at work when this happened, because we are practically family there. It is an incredible group of people to work with.

Okay... and remember, all of this is happening in my department....

Two weeks ago, another coworker had her brother die.

This week, yet another coworker had his father die.

Yesterday, my supervisor's mother died.

This morning, I received an email from our Chief Financial Officer that yet another coworker, a lovely woman, had been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer.

Isn't this enough? I mean.... really.

I'm just numb.

Thank you!!! Warm hugs back, and believe me, if I figure a way out of here, you'll be the FIRST person I call. We can leave together.

I know exactly how you feel because I seem to be having the same sort of year. It seems to be something about 2007 generally... All I can say is New Year's Day can't get here soon enough, and if you fond a way off the ride, can you let me know what it is please?

Yes, I vote for moving right to 2008 and getting a fresh start!

You are bearing up incredibly well considering - no one should ever have to go through this many trials and tribulations at once.

Take care of yourself, hear? [hugs]

Oh sweetie ... MEGAHUGS!!!!! Waves like this do tend to go one's life, don't they? There was one phase in my life where I hated to pick up the phone when it rang, because it seemed to always be my mother letting me know of another family death (this time included my dad and niece ... Mom and I got through it in our own black'n'morbid humoured way by referring to it as "death-of-the-month ... horrid, I know, but it saved a bit of our sanities)

***wishes VERY hard for a way to take all buddies off the current ride to a pink, warm, and fuzzy place where it's physically impossible for anything bad to happen***

{{{huggles}} I'd add in some of my typical inappropriate dark humor, but I'm sure you don't want to hear it.

I do think of your Mom all the time, though, and tell her thank you for the lovely bath robe and all the other nice things that I got from her. I put it on, and it's like getting a hug. :)

No, thank you for not engaging in dark humor, especially since today would have been her 83rd birthday, I think the levity may have been lost.

I do treasure your comments about the bathrobe, though, I know mom would be happy that you like it!

*snuggles* Bad things always seem to happen together. Try and take comfort in the people who care for you. I know it won't make things better, but it helps.

Thanks K~ And it really does make it better knowing that - I appreciate your thoughts!

On a happier note...... have you worn out the DVDs yet????? :D

They're not worn out yet, but i'm sure my mother's going to hit me with them the next time I scream for her to come to my room and see Yuuki-san's short-shorts *grins*

So I'm thinking of making copies. And keeping them in safes. Buried under the ground.

Just in case.

Have you finished Gluhen yet?

Ya know, that's not such a bad idea. Extras are gooooooood.

Haven't finished watching Gluehn yet - I hope to this weekend. And I'll let you know!
