Today needs to END soon I hope! I got in my car to come home decided to give Laurie a call to see how she's done today since she's at her own home now
and she was laying on the couch reading a book. Well I asked how her day had gone, she tells me that she'd called Mother to take her to Fred Meyer for a few things and on the way Mother told her that "She ought to be making some final arrangements since funerals don't come cheap and are expensive". Well Laurie asked her if she was dying and she knew something that Laurie didn't know, of course then the back peddling began quickly. Seems Mother is concerned get this one...about WHO is going to pay for Laurie to be taken care when the time comes it's expensive you know! So here's Laurie trying to recover from all this surgery doing all she can to get well and this bomb is dropped on her in a very less then compassionate manner on the way to the store. So Laurie is crying, upset and asked me if she was going to die in the next couple of months. I repeated to her EXACTLY what the DR had told me, now keep in mind I am the ONLY one in the family who has talked to the DR directly during the surgery she spent about 20 minutes with me. She doesn't know anymore then anyone else she told me could be 3 months, six months or a year no one knows, what she DID tell me is that she couldn't get all of the cancer so Laurie still has cancer and the ONLY thing I didn't repeat to Laurie that she said was that the cancer will get her eventually! But for Laurie sake it's important that she fight to get well and take that round of chemo and continue fighting til she can't fight anymore, so WHY would a mother say something so painful to a child who's been through what Laurie's been through like that? My guess is that she's ONLY concerned about WHO will need to bury her and write the check for it!! Sick I am so hopping mad I would like to strangle her except that I am NOT speaking to her. So I have assured Laurie that if and when the time comes I yes I will write the check to see to it that she gets her wishes done as she wants and I will be there to WRITE the check myself.
I am so upset with Mother for doing this to Laurie I think this says it all
So when I got home I preceeded to unload all of my conversation with Laurie to Rich and he was absolutely fuming and after we talked he walked in my office and said " I will be back" so my guess is he's gone one of two places and he's not happy about what happened today, he's either going to confront Mother or to see my brother Duke who is a gossiping old hen and thinks anything and everything Mother does is ok cause she's old you know so it's ok. Well this sort of thing is NOT ok and Laurie only has us to fight for her.
Ok enough of that. Families can be a true pain in the backside!
On another note I made an appointment today to get my hair highlighted on Saturday for this summer and I am so excited to do that, something to look forward to that's happy!! Then I am going to go buy something bright and spring looking colored for Uncle BJ's memorial I will NOT wear BLACK AND WHITE as I want something HAPPY and colorful like he was. So Saturday will be a day of fun!!
What would I ever do without you guys to listen to my tales of woooo!!
