Wed. May, 30th
Well as they say, tragedy strikes in threes. My best friend, and college roomie is getting married this Saturday. I was supposed to be one of the bride's maids if you guys remember. I posted about it way back when. I was pretty stoked. This is the first time I'll have been a bride's maid in someone's wedding, and I love Rebecca.
But the hubby's oldest sister died yesterday. So now instead, we'll be going to a funeral. She had surgery on her throat this week to help her swallow, I think. And she went through it fine, her parents brought her to their house while she recovered. Then like 2 days later, they had to call the ambulance for her when everyone woke up. She couldn't breath. An infection from the surgery got into her lungs and she developed pneumonia a short time after. And from that morning she got sick, she died the next day, yesterday. That infection killed her in a day.
I really wanted to be a bride's maid too, but I wouldn't miss his sister's funeral. She's always been really supportive of me. And the kind of person that never missed a date. She remembered everyone's birthday's, anniversary's, you name it. She was an incredibly sweet person, and I'm going to miss her. Especially with how this whole mess with my parents played out. I begin to wonder if I'd have any of my own family to turn to if something ever happened. So the hubby's family means all the more to me. At least I would have them.
Well, that's the update on the shitty month that is May. Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention that Rebecca just found out she has lime disease. Her work takes her into wooded areas for stream samples. She doesn't know how she got it, she's pretty careful at checking for ticks and things after going into woods. But it looks like she got it last winter some time, so she's had it for over a year now. So it would seem other's May's are crappy as well.
I think I'm going to have an emotional overload, good grief.
