    My son arrived home for the holidays on Thursday the 17th then last Friday morning my son and his father flew to Portland Or to dog-sit for an old client of mine who moved there a few years ago. She flew them out most holidays. They arrived that night and Sat morning my son found his father collapsed on the bathroom floor and called 911. His Dad had a massive aneurism and died with 24 hours.
    I caught the last flight out of Newark in that blizzard but missed the connection in San Fran and didn't get there until the following day- they pulled the plug while I was enroute. His Uncle flew up from LA to stay with him until I got there. My son is 20 and was incredibly close to his Dad. Despite our acrimonios divorce, he was a loving, involved, supportive father. We shared custody of his older son as well who is 10 years older than my son. They were all devoted to each other. This has been devastating. We were together 25 years.
    Some of you know my present husband has been very ill as well and had a relapse while I was getting my boy home. He went back into the hospital while I was away and has been there ever since. We spent the day there today after staying up until 1:30 last night cooking to take his Christmas supper into the hospital.
    Thanks for your concern- but can we get this year over and wipe the slate clean so we can start fresh?.....

      Oh Beth, I'm so sorry about your ex and hope your present hubby gets home soon.
      I also agree with you on getting this year done and over with....

      Those aneurisms are nasty....my uncle passed away from one 13 years ago.

                          AB, I'm so sorry. I hadn't seen you here and was wondering if something was going on. I'm so sorry to hear about your son's dad. It's horrible. And I hope your husband is feeling better. Huge hug to you. <3 I don't know why bad things have to happen....

                            I am so sorry to hear of your loss, I can somewhat relate this holiday. My DIL's Daddy passed away unexpectedly a week and a half ago. While she is my DIL she and my son have been "best friends" since they were 10. I have felt so bad for her this year, out of the five children in the family she was the closest to her Daddy, only moving accross the street when she married my son. I know it is hard on you, but I understand the pain you feel for your children when a loss like this occurs. I will be thinking and praying for you and your son, as well as your husband.

                            The new year will be much better and brighter for us all.
