Nothing to say

We were going to spend Christmas with my parents (it was also my dad's 70th birthday) but then decided at the last minute to spend it with my in-laws, as it was rapidly becoming clear that this would be my mother-in-law's last Christmas. We bought plane tickets to go to my parents in January instead. Now it looks like we'll have to cancel that trip, too. My MIL's doctor took her off chemo a few weeks ago. She is now receiving only palliative care, from a hospice nurse who visits every day. She has deteriorated rapidly in the last week or two. My FIL says it will probably be two weeks. We are now just waiting.

Between this, and my being laid off, and the problems we're having in our marriage, the amount of stress and hurt our little family is experiencing right now is just too much. I'm going to be laying low for a while.
