Entry #235

RIP

2017-03-11 14:08:17 by Troisnyx

My fiancé, Seán, gave me some very bad news on Friday at 4:00 in the morning or thereabouts. His mother, Margaret, succumbed to the two cancers that she had had, when the night was darkest, just before dawn on 10 March 2017.

As a background, we first knew of the cancers back in September of 2014, but for a year and a half, no one told us that the cancers were both Stage 4, and therefore terminal. Even if the truth were harder to swallow, I would have preferred that than not to have been told anything.

Then about mid-last month or so (or is it early last month?), Margaret found it difficult to eat or drink. The nurses and the doctor who were sent to her raised red flags that she was on her last legs, and she was sent to the nearest St Catherine's Hospice for the terminally ill. While we knew she would be well taken care of, we also knew that the end was going to come soon.

 



 

Seán has now lost both parents, and I have lost the one person whom I could have called my mother. She would have wanted to see us marry and bring grandchildren to the family. We would have loved for her to be their grandmother, but that's not to be.

It is presumed that her funeral would be one, maybe two weeks from now. I don't know. Everything is just a blur and we are weary. Seán and I now only have each other, and we are doing our best to stay as strong as we can. Prayers and thoughts if you please.

RIP.

Being athiest makes life suck. I don't pray so I look like a jerk. By saying this stuff here, I sound like a jerk.
RIP, though. May they make it to heaven.

I'm so sorry for your lost. So many tragics happened to good people. I'm also sorry that I have not checked news more often.

Troisnyx responds:

Ah, dinnae worry... Seán is taking it a hell of a lot better than most (myself included). I'm glad you're with us at this time.
