~*trying to be strong*~

Ghostie was very sad today when we spoke on the phone...i knew whatever was on his mind it had to be something very bad...he is a strong strong person, but too, there has been so much going on back home...

until today i felt no need to write about it, in part because of the fact that it involves someone else's life...in a very personal way... Ghosties mom has been very ill with cancer for a long time, it has taken a huge toll on her, and i knew as well as Ghostie, that she would not be undergoing anymore treatments for it...

When Ghostie and i made arrangements for him to come to the States this past summer, mom had been doing well, she was a bit nervous about Ghostie making the trip and soz i got the chance to talk with her via the phones on more than one occassion, and i too have felt a bit of a bonding with her so much so that todays news has left me feeling deeply saddened...

On Monday mom went into hospice, with the thought being that dad needed a bit of a rest, and within a week or so time mom would be coming back home... On Tuesday they had increased some of her meds so that by Wednesday Ghostie and dad were beginning to see signs that mom was indeed improving, we all took in a breath of relief... Yesturday, mom asked Ghostie to please stay with his father this weekend and take care of him, Ghostie had agreed to do just that, even moreso, it was his intention that come Monday of next week he was moving back home to be with his parents...

Ghostie originally had intended to do as much when he returned from the States, but with mom being ill and dad being tierd, wellllllllllll...arriving a few weeks earlier than expected could only be benificial for them all i thinks...

today the Dr's gave dad a bit of bad news...and dad had waited till Ghostie had driven them both home before sharing this news with Ghostie... the Dr's have informed dad that mom is not getting any better, and in fact say now that she is close to leaving us, closer than had been anticipated, but not giving any sort of a time frame at this point...

all we know is Tuesday Ghostie had spoken to the Drs himself and stated that he was to be coming to the States the end of the month and he wanted his mom here when he returned...Tuesday the Drs had said "not a problem"...today... welll, today we are all trying to be strong...and lil miss moonie is trying to find the next flight she can possibly take out of here...

i'm imagining i try to fly into Manchester...i just cant remember if Heathrow is closer or not...one thing for certain, i know who i cancall on if i need a ride in from the airport...ty tooo alllllll our woogie friends (you knows who you are!)
