Another death

We've just heard that husband's brother died in the early hours of this morning, we were told 3 weeks ago that he had incurable cancer.  There was no love lost between them but, even so, you don't wish your own family dead.  

This is turning out to be a really rotten week.

Off out for a few hours to forget about things for a while.


  1. More sad news for you - so sorry. Bet you are looking forward to 2020 already as it must be better than this year has been for you.

  2. I agree-some years just go from bad to worse

  3. You're right, there's a difference between not getting on and not grieving over a death.
    I'm so sorry. xxxxx

  4. So sorry to hear that you have more sad news and yet another death. It happens in families that you hit certain periods in your life when the older generation of mums, dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles have declining health and then at some point your siblings and friends start on the same road as they advance in years. My mum now 93 is the eldest surviving of the older generation in our family, followed by my dad's only sister who was much younger and now 80 and has just started with Alzheimers. Our siblings and cousins are so far still relatively healthy as are our friends but for how long I wonder? It is not easy for you coping with your own problems, together with those of your husband and mother, so it is not unusual for you to feel very stressed at the moment and getting out for a while is a good idea. Take care x

  5. My goodness how awful for you both, so sorry for your loss. xx

  6. So sorry for your loss. Good idea to get out for a bit.
