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.

I'm so sorry to hear all that =( It's a terrible loss with your friend there. It's never easy to have anyone you know deeply pass on. And then having this with your stepdad...I do hope he comes out okay. This day is just a terrible day for many it seems =( And you got hit with quite a bit all at once.

Here's to hoping he pulls through.

Very sad news indeed. I'm very sorry for your loss.
And my hopes are with your stepfather, and your mother. You are a wonderful daughter to give no thought about making changes in your own life in order to be there for your Mom. No matter what happens, you are a pillar of strength which she needs.
