My stepsons' half-brother was killed yesterday in a car accident. DH's ex-wife lost her husband only last year, and I'm sure the loss of her son is devastating. I know there is a lasting bond of sorts between my husband and his ex-wife, and DH is trying to be a rock for everyone, at a time when he is suffering his own burdens.
We were going to take a short trip to meet one son's in-laws; that trip will now include a funeral. I hope to be able to continue with my plans to see my Mom, but they may have to change.
And DH's pain meds aren't strong enough to keep him pain-free. Break-through pain aggravates his heart condition.
It's no 1-2 punch; it is a 1-2-3 punch. The proverbial excrement has hit the fan...
