I speak from my heart when I say this. This thread has been my my coping mechanism. My husband has the same type of brain cancer as the late Sen Ted Kennedy and currently John McCain.
This thread has been my coping mechanism. I chuckle when I think on the 8th of choosing whether I need to take my husband (on our 34th wedding anniversary) to ER or serve the dinner I made to celebrate our anniversary or finish watching the CNN Special on Jessica.
OK,I finished watching the CNN Special put dinner in frigerator and took my husband to ER. We finished up at the hospital around 2am the 9th.
Again I am chuckling at myself! Early next morning the 9th I post my synopsis (posts #12 & #32 of the 2nd thread.)I was frustrated at CNN because of their editing I had so many questions. I was hoping that another poster had watched the CNN Special and could clarify.
Then darn when I watched it on CNN again Tuesday they had edited out every single talking point I needed clarification on.
I am going to have Home Health from the hospital help me out hopefully this week. As you can see both my husband and I have kept our sense of humor. I am always teasing him about how much fun we're having.
I know now there are many reading this that are dealing with issues. You are in my prayers too.
Thanks for being here my virtual support group. No one else in the 'real world' gets why I use my Websleuths community to cope. I know everyone reading this gets the same questioning look from friends and family. :wink:
Your posts and DeDee's have become a mainstay for me, along with several other folks, always encouraging us all to pursue justice and dig a little deeper. Despite your caring preoccupation with your husband's serious condition, I am glad this WS site could be a welcome diversion and even a source of light-hearted banter between you two.
There are many good hearts and sharp minds that have shined forth from these discussions. I wish the outcome this past Sunday could have reflected the efforts put forth in what is now the 15th and possibly final Jessica Chambers thread, each filled with nearly a 1000 posts -- posts from all walks of life, many different perspectives and life experiences, some from other sides of the world -- a full range of the human condition putting their collective heads together to try and do some good. I joined WS in January 2015, right after Jessica's murder. It was my first case here, and it will definitely be my last. I am simply not cut out for it. It became overwhelming for a plodding, methodical, linear thinker to keep up with once the trial stage was reached. I admire those who can do this sort of thing over and over, both professionally and here on WS. I cannot.
My choice of Clouseau as an alter ego here was not intended to be an insult, or show a lack of respect for the seriousness of this crime, or for those trying to solve and prosecute it. It merely reflected my own self awareness, that like Peter Seller's affable character, I too might be taking my own opinions and capabilities just a little too seriously. But I admit to also secretly hoping that, just like Clouseau, despite my ineptitude I might somehow stumble upon something of value. I sincerely hope that did occur, and if my less than somberly approach caused distress to some, my sincerest apologies.
Last, I do thank Tricia and her WS team for creating, maintaining, and hosting such an amazing place for dealing with such weighty matters, at any time of the day or night.
