Hi all, I'll try to make this short. I appreciate all the answers I got about the sister-in-law problem and I realize she is just trying to find someone to listen to her whining. Well, today my daughter called and they put my 5 yr old grandson in the hospital. He has pneumonia. Well, while I was on the phone telling my mother, she called and the caller ID didn't register her number,so I answered. I told her about my grandson and all she could do was tell me that she had pneumonia when she was in the 3rd grade and how bad she felt. I finally, after telling her I had to go several times, got off the phone. Well, less than 5 minutes later she shows up at my door, with a pants suit that she wants to give me and says, " I hope you don't get mad, but I wanted to give this to you. It's too little for me. It's an extra large." Then she just stands there. I was trying to fix dinner before leaving for the hospital to see my grandson. I told her to have a seat and I'd be in there in a minute. She just stood there. My son came in from the store to bring me hamberger buns and couldn't get around her. He says,"yes, please sit down". She just stares and says well I can't stay but a minute. Then turns around and leaves. I could tell she wanted to say something. I think she was going to unload all her problems on me, but when my son came in she decided not to. No grandson is not doing well at all. His oxygen level is about 89 and they want it to be at least 96 or 97. He's on oxygen. Please if you pray, please pray for him. I also had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance on Friday night. I was having severe pains in the back of my head and shoulder and in my chest when I took a deep breath. They said chemo and radiation can cause different things in different people and put me on loratabs and flexeril. With the stress of everything else, it's no wonder my head and neck hurts. What should I do about my sister-in-law? How do I get past the stress of cancer, a sick grandson, a very sick dad, two crazy sister-in-laws my daughter not having a good marriage, etc. etc.etc.
