They have already been through so much…

My parents are coming to stay with us for two weeks!  What the hell was I thinking?  I am so worried about how J is going to act. He is the favored and honored grandson. We did tell my parents he was in rehab and working hard on doing the right thing…but we were deliberately vague, not wanting to alarm them. You see my brother was an addict and died of a seizure in rehab when he was 30 years old.  It was horrible, I was newly married and had just had my first son which ironically was of course J. My mom had gone out west to visit both my brothers. My oldest brother realized he had to pull himself together because he had not seen mom in over a year, so he decided to check himself into detox. My mother flew in and spent the night with my middle brother and when they woke up in the morning they got a call saying my oldest brother had died in his sleep. I can remember it like it was yesterday. So painful to think about…and yet here we are once again dealing with addiction.

Please say a little prayer that we can all hold it together for my parents sake.  They have already been through so much…

I am a mom of 4 who thought she was home free when my oldest son went off to college. My serious blunder? Genetics and being naive or maybe just plain stupid.

    Try to relax and enjoy the visit! Everything will be fine. I’ll be praying for you and your family.

  2. Can I say a big prayer? Maybe the best thing for all of you will be a visit from them. Your kids will enjoy seeing their grandparents and visa versa. I hope that its very peaceful and fun. No stress or drama. Hope you can enjoy, how long will they be there?

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. The anxiety/fear of then feeling like you’re living through a repeat of the past must be intense.

    I will continue praying for your family!

    My thoughts are with you. Saying prayers for your family as I know it is hard to tell your parents what is going on. We have a hard enough time trying to comprehend. Thinking of you!

    I hope that all works out well with the visit. I remember to pause when agitated and generally keep quiet unless I have something good to say.
