Last week was a bad week. We took DD to the Dr and she was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis and tested for cancer and while waiting for the results my Dad rang me in tears because the dog they have had for 10 years died. The day my Dad rang I was inconsolable I was already stressed and then this fur baby who had been in the family and even lived with us part time for 10 years died. I sent DH heaps of texts because I was falling apart and all I got was "ok" in return. The next day my daughters results came back clear so I felt a huge weight lifted and DH thought everything was fine but everyday I speak to my Mum and she tells me how bad my Dad is taking the passing of his dog. My Dad had a triple bypass a long time ago and has had heart problems and has been getting chest pains and according to my Mum he cries all the time and my Dad never cries. I keep saying to DH I am worried and just have a bad feeling something will happen especially when they pick up the ashes and the only response I get is "Hhhmmm" I am a mess trying to deal with my daughters limitations and manage her pain and worrying about my parents and I have gotten no support. I am sorry I don't even know why I posted this just needed to vent I guess.
Just to add I know someone taking the passing of a pet seems weird to some but my family are big animal lovers and to us they are like our children and this dog went everywhere with my Dad and shared a pillow with him and if he watched tv then she would always sitting on his lap.
