Thank God That Week Is Over!

Thank Goodness that week is over!!!!
Today my son called his car broke down and needed my husband to go down town and get him. Would you belive the tow truck took his car to the repair shop but wouldn't take him! I have always ridden in the cab of the tow truck with the driver. Not sure if this is a new policy because of some insurance issue or what but I think it really stinks you could be stuck on the side of the road if you didn't have anyone to call....
My mother-in-law goes in for surgery on Tues. the cancer has not gotten into her lymph nodes but they are going to remove both her breasts. My brother-in-law is flying in from North Carolina he told my husband "Because it might be the last time he sees his mother". I haven't been thinking in those terms, I've been thinking that she will make it thru the operation, I'm just worried about infections and such afterwards. She is an insulin diabetic and not sure if she needed to to chemo how all that would work out for her. My husband has been very quiet about the whole thing, I know when my mom was fading fast with emphysema I visited her at her home and I knew in my gut it was the last time I would see her alive but your mind doesn't let you belive it. I talked about how great the meal she made was, How happy I was that she was home from the hospital ect. - I never said I love you mom! I could kick myself now.... I really want my husband to go down Tues. and sit with his mother while she is getting ready for surgery and hope he has some one on one time with her (He went down to her home on Wed. and spent some time with her but he said she didn't talk much and was kinda cocooning herself from everything). Our brain fools us into thinking we have days, even years with our loved ones but we don't, time passes so quickly and then an illness pops up out from out of no where and we have to face the fact that that person might not be around with us anymore. My mother-in-law has not asked to see my kids or my brother-in-laws daughter, so not sure if they will be going down to see her or not. It's so odd we have had sooooo many problems and issues this week that we almost put my mother-in-laws cancer on the back burner.... Which is so sad!
I am praying all goes well and she makes a full recovery! She has said even tho she is 78 she is not ready to die yet....
