What a mixed report --- that is absolutely great news about your husband and the job. Is he local or will he have to travel again? I hope he stays in the area.
As for the BIL - I would not let him back. If you can't do that, then your husband should. You don't need some loud mouthed drunk creating problems in your house and your life. I don't know what causes your seizures, but I would guess the stress of this jerk didn't help your situation.
Bladder surgery, while not a fun prospect, may really help your problems. I will hope for a successful surgery and a fast recovery.
Good luck with the bathroom remodel- there's nothing llike a deadline to get a project moving.
Hi, SB. I too send you best wishes regarding your surgery. I do hope it helps. And 3 cheers about your husband's new job. One less thing to worry about.
Your brother-in-law sounds like a jerk. There are always know-it-alls out there who think they have cornered the market on medical treatment. I bet he'd be a real cry-baby himself if he got as much as a hang-nail. So give his comments all the attention they deserve, which is none at all.
Hi, just wanted to add my congratulatory wishes about hubby's new job as well as send best wishes for your surgery.
Good luck on the bathroom remodel. Hope it goes smoothly.
Sending best wishes for a speedy recovery,
So happy about the new job for your husband.
Bother in law is a jerk clueless jerk He should walk in your shoes for a day
And best wishes on surgery. Hang in there for us You do have a full plate.
wishing you the best Linda
congrats on your hubby on getting a new job. good luck with the surgery, I hope you heal well and fast. Try not to over do it this weekend with the bathroom.
As for your BIL, he sounds like my brother, try to ignore this jerk and if possible out of house and away from you. did he think the seizure was faked too? not that it matters. if he's anything like my brother he'll run to his mommy when he gets a small boo-boo. IMO, this type of people should be in our shoes. maybe then they'd learn some compassion to others.
Hi, I hope the projects go well and does the surgery and the new job. Yahoo!
As for the BIL, people like that are toxic presences and suck our presence energy - even when we try to ignore them. I recommend that he not be allowed back at your house until he can mind his tongue. This is often an effective way for cowards and bullies to see that their actions have consequences. Have your DH tell him if necessary.
Hoping all goes smoothly.
I forgot to add- get in touch with me if I can be of help since I'm so close.
Get that bladder done and then you can go back to the other problems with more focus, perhaps! - L
Gee you've got a lot going on, you might end up doing to much in the rush to get it all ready, be a good girl now!! Great news about hubby getting a job, sort of great that your about to get your bladder sorted, you'll probably need a rest after all you've got going on lol.
About your BIL, the world is full of overly opinionated people, no qualifications, no education or experience to back up their unfounded words, they are all knowing, regardless! He kind of reminds me of one of my relatives, he was adement and highly verbal with his opinions on what my DD's 'real' issues were, he was wrong but even with medical evidence he still never changed his unqualified opinions, just ignorant and not worth the negative energy. These people never seem to change, i try to hold my tongue but sometimes i bite back because someone needs to let them know they are full of hot air and nothing but ignorant twits!! No solution, they have a negative and yes toxic energy but they just dont see themselves as being the Asss.
Thanks you all for the best wishes. It really means a lot to me.
It doesn't look like we'll get the bathroom done this weekend..OH WELL! I guess it wasn't meant to be. The place where we were going to order it from, said the tub and wall unit wouldn't be in until next Friday, so I guess we are going to wait until I fully recover and try then. I guess it does work out better. I shouldn't put too much on my plate and over do it.
LuLu- Hubby got a job locally. He'll be working at AK Steel. It's a little bit of a drive from here (40min.) but worth it. He got hired on in the maintenance department...He's the Jack of all trades:) We are so happy right now.
As far as BIL problems, my husband already tied into him about what he said. BIL said that he guessed it was the wrong thing to say and that he thought it would calm people down..To me, that just shows how ignorant he is. It reminds me of a saying "I refuse to have a battle of the wits, with an unarmed person."
Just to say I am sending you strength, love and prayers for your forthcoming surgery. You sound like a strong woman but we all need support with the challenges we face. With best wishes
Thanks so much Sarah. I appreciate it.
