My mamaw (on my moms side) got real bad sick with cancer. She was at home in hospice's care. They said she was in the stages of dying and it would probably be 2 or 3 days till she passed. I went over to her house and spent as much time as I could with her, and helping my mom with cooking and cleaning. By this time she was practically in a coma. I told DH what was going on and asked him if he would watch our daughters (2yo and 4yo). He said that he would. They mainly stayed outside, but I would go outside and help watch them. It came to a point where they thought she wasn't going to make it thru the night. I told DH this. He said he wanted to go with our BIL and pick up some pigs....yes we live in the country. I asked him how long he was gonna be gone and he said not long, they were just going down the road. I told him okay, but to hurry back cause I couldn't go in and sit with her, cause by this time, it had to stay very quite in the house. He was gone for over 2 hours. When he got back, I asked him what took so long, and he said that he didn't think they would be gone that long. I let it go. He took the girls with him back to our house to get a few things. When he got back he said he was gonna work on the exhaust on his truck. I reminded him that he had to take the girls cause I couldn't go in the house with them, I had to stay outside and watch them. He said okay. I no longer had got inside and sat down, someone came and told me that my LO was in the road!! My mamaw lives up a holler, so it wasn't the main road, but the road to get to her house) None the less, they were in the road)I ran outside to find my girls, but him no where around. I got my girls and we went to find him. It was at my moms house (they live right beside my mamaw and papaw) working on his exhaust. I asked him if he knew where the girls were at. He said they wanted to go play. I reminded him again that I couldn't see mamaw if he didn't watch the girls. He said Well....I can't stop now. So I ended up having to stay outside all day and watch the girls, and couldn't go see my mamaw. When we had to leave for the night, I was so mad and crying. The next day, did watch them all day so I could see her. She passed away on Monday.
If she had passed away that night, and I didn't get to see her, I probably would have divorced him for being so heartless. I did get to spend time with her before she passed, we were very close and the whole situation had me tore to pieces. I can't seem to get over what he did. Sorry so long, I guess I'm searching for what I should do to get over what he done. :(
