Alex, I'm very sorry for your loss.  I lost my last living grandparent last December.  I know how hard it can be.  Hope you and your family are hanging in there.

My family just had a pretty big loss, too.  My father-in-law passed away very suddenly last week Monday.  He was a huge (think Jeb's height, but add about 100 lbs) biker with a long white beard.  He was a pretty rad guy all told.  F actually worked with him, and was there when he collapsed suddenly.  We camped out at his mom's house for most of the week last week until after the wake on Saturday.  F went back to work yesterday, and his mom went back to work today.  This is going to be an especially weird Christmas because it was always my father-in-law who made the food and stuff for the celebrations.  I am just grateful that my son got a chance to meet him a few times in his 2 months of life.

I'm also maybe not sad, but concerned because my baby has either another ear infection or his first one never went away.  The pediatrician is already saying he'll probably need tubes.

He also has torticollis, which is a twisted neck due to tight muscles on one side of the neck.  It is caused by positioning in the womb.  It can cause delayed motor milestones and misshapen head if left untreated.  He'll probably need PT.  Not the worst thing, but not making me any happier.

The good news is that he is otherwise an adorable, growing well, and otherwise developmentally on target.  Still, it's not fun to have worries.

Thanks for the good wishes, everyone.

And I'm very sorry to hear about your father-in-law, Katie, as well as the health issues of lil Miles. Hope he'll have recovered completely very soon!

My deepest condolences to you both, Alex and Katie. I hope you can surround yourselves with friends and family during the holidays, which I imagine will be an especially hard time.

Really lousy end to the night on an array of levels. This, as we say in the faith, is a bitter taste; but sometimes the bitterness seems to overrun the frameworks one has set up for these sorts of things. It's hard to approach things with mindfulness and equanimity when it feels like your fulcrum, your baseline has been washed out. This is just a feeling, but it's a strong one.

Man, but you wrote down your expression of sadness so beautifully. I hope things start tasting sweet, but not too sweet, soon.

So I haven't been here in awhile.

I didn't have a working computer.

My lady friend and I split up after 3 years back in November.

I am doing my absolute best to move on, but it isn't working.

I've had a bad month/year.

I'm sorry, Kyle. But also, three months worth of working to get over a three year relationship is not a long time. If you don't feel like you've been able to move on yet, this is 100% no failure. It takes a while! And the transition is gradual. I hope your year gets better.

I missed you, kyle, and was sorry to hear it's been a tough winter.

G.C.R.'s right - if you weren't still working through your relationship at this point, I'd be surprised. Heart

I've heard that 3 months is a general time-frame of acute grief, and then there's still grief after that to go through. Don't be hard on yourself, and I'm sorry it's rough. Heart
