Today was a real roller coaster ride emotionally. My father woke up in pain very early this morning (he has a chronic illness) and started feeling a sense of despondency as well as his own mortality.
Mom freaked. She doesn’t deal with death very well, or letting go of anything that has no immediate and apparent solution.
I’ll say there was some real communication problems that resulted in a lot of messes. No, I don’t care to elaborate.
