His mom is unresponsive this morning and they put her on oxygen.
For about the past week and half, she has been in the hospital and then a rehab center.
My husband and his dad will be going over there as soon as his dad gets dressed.
When my husband told me this this morning, he started crying.
He was finishing making his breakfast and then sat down to eat it. I stood beside him and put my arm around his shoulders and he put his arm around my waist.
I know this is hard for him, and even though I don’t love him, I know he needs the comfort. I just listened to him talk.
I can be there for him as a detached friend through this. I’m just that kind of person.
However, I’m also aware that there probably will be retaliation at some point down the road for my kindness and compassion towards him. And anger taken out on me about all of this.
I’ve slept in the living room all week and that is not going to change.
I can be a friend through a difficult time, but I won’t go back in bed with him. That would be too risky.
