Two terrible things.

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 30, 2012, 2:37 PM
Today has been one of the worst days I've had in a very very long time.

My boyfriend and I lost a very dear friend of ours today. He died from complications with AIDS. We knew this day was coming, but....it doesn't make it any easier. He was an amazing person and we're going to miss him terribly. I'm actually kind of numb over it. I can't believe he's gone.

The second terrible thing is that my step dad had a heart attack this morning, and is having emergency bypass surgery, right now, actually. I'm sitting here waiting to see how it went. Apparently every artery surrounding his heart are closed shut.

If he dies, I will be uprooting my life here to be wherever it is my mom will be. She's currently living in Texas, and she hates it there. Her husband dying will not only break her, but she will have nothing holding her to that state and will move immediately. I'm not sure if she will come back down to where I live or move somewhere else, but wherever it is she goes, I'm following. She has rheumatoid arthritis so severely that she can barely walk, and her husband Todd was the one that had been taking care of her all this time. Without him, I doubt she'll be emotionally or physically capable of taking care of herself.

So...I'm going to be a bit MIA from DA for awhile. If you pray, please pray for my step dad Todd that he makes it through this surgery.

my grand-ma had like five heart attacks this past few years and she always managed to get by, and she is now 91 so I'm sure your father will be fine

I am very sorry to hear about both of these tragedies. I am not deeply religious, but I will say some prayers for you.

If it helps, doctors have become very good at open heart surgery. My grandfather had bypass surgery in 1995 and he is still kicking today. I hope your dad will be OK too.
