Yes, well I do.
I did/could not go back for Kim's funeral because I could not afford it; I was afraid to leave my kids for too long; I was working too much.
Not three weeks later, I developed a toothache. The kind of toothache that has one realizing that their lack of dental insurance would be better spent on a plane ticket back east to visit Dentist Brother. But you know what? I suck. Because I could not fly back to deal with toothache when I could not cough up the money for a funeral. (so the tooth, it festers)
Umm...So...back to the right now....my aunt, Kim's mother, just died. Just now.
Previously asymptomatic sudden onset (aka sudden Dx) Lung Disease. Never smoked.
Didn't want to go to the hospital to investigate her shortness of breath. Because, you know. Her daughter just died.
So, she finally relented. She went into the hospital. It was not a great Dx, but not a horrible one, you know, as far as these things go. And then? Tonight....my aunt just died. JUST DIED.
So now I will be flying back for a funeral and a root canal. Most likely with a two year old in tow.
Do you believe?
Pray for me if you do.
Actually, screw me.
Pray for my uncle. And my cousin.
And hey, IF THERE IS A god?
