T and P's for A's family...

I *just* found out that A's aunt is in our Naval Hospital.  She is active duty in Norfolk (well, was AD).  Anyway, she has been fighting cancer and I guess it's just not working.  They stopped treatment and are giving her a month tops.  Also just found out A's aunt and grandmother will be arriving in an hr to be here and hep her family.  Over the next 2 weeks, his family will be trickling in to say their goodbyes.  I feel really uncomfortable going to the hospital and I am sure they are going to think I am a horrible person because of it.  Idk what to do.

 

Anyway, please say a prayer for his side of the family and for her as they go through this difficult time.  Thanksa

  • Hugs to you. I know this is rough. Thoughts and prayers for A's family.

  • Thoughts and prayers for you all. I know it is hard to go to the hospital. They always make me uncomfortable, even when I'm the one in them.

  • The Nest ate my post! I was trying to say that I think if you can, you should go during the duty day so as not to run into any yucky people. You're a good person, with a good heart, and I think it would be awesome of you to give support, but only if you feel up to it. Either way, they know you're a kind heart, and they love you, no matter what else is going on.
    I've seen a lot of military surprise homecomings. It wouldn't work on me. I always have my back to the corner and my face to the door. Looking for terrorists, criminals, various other threats, and husbands.
  • That's such a tough situation.  I think Stan has it right (as usual).  Prayers for her, the family, and for you as well.  ::hugs::

    I agree as well.  If you can't visit can you send flowers to her room (assuming the hospital doesn't have any restrictions) or a card?  Just something to let her know you're thinking of her.

    T & P's to everyone.

    I was considering sending flowers instead of going.  A is on leave to be wwith her and help shuffle family around that is visiting.  I have only met her once 2 years ago...so it would be awkward even if it were just her there.  Not to mention his other family members there who speak hardly any English.  This would have def been one of those times where I would rely on A to handle this while i sit pretty...as we know, that is not possible now.  It's a crappy and very uncomfortablee situation...:(

    I think if it'll be uncomfortable for you, flowers are definitely the way to go. I'm assuming she isn't in an ICU room, because obviously they won't take flowers generally, but if she is you could send them to the family after.
