by StephanieLynn » Mar 15, 2019 at 2:34 PM I probably turn to you all more than I should but the struggle with life is real. Some of you may have read my previous post about my MIL, we were considering taking her in now that she is terminal but she decided to go home. Well just last night she took a turn for the worst and today is going to hospice, it doesn't look good, she may not last past the weekend. Then this week I found our five year old dog has a growth in his mouth. Brought him to the vet today and the doctor is very concerned as these types of growths are abnormal and usually malignant. He is having surgery Tuesday and they will biopsy the tumor. We have had a total of twelve pets in the 15 years living here and of those five died from cancer, the vet is concerned that it is environmental, maybe radon or the tap water. I'm just not sure where I'm supposed to be or what to do. I took the dog to the vet this morning and have to get our son from school at 4. DH is with SIL 45 min away with MIL at the hospice facility, I feel like I should be there but then I asked him if he needed me there and he said he is okay for now. Do I go anyways? Do I try to keep things as normal as possible here for the kids? I have no idea but then I don't want people to think I'm an uncaring spouse. Yesterday DH came home and told me that the nurse told him MIL may only have a couple of days and his first thought was that our anniversary (13 years ironically) is Sunday and what if she dies on our anniversary. Guys, this didn't even cross my mind but yes it is possible MIL could die on our anniversary, poor DH it's just all too much crap.
