My BF and I were sitting on her bed yesterday and the phone rang. She answered it and after a minute or two she started to turn pale.
The person on the other end was someone who worked in the same circles with her husband. The person told her that her husband had announced earlier yesterday that he has a blood clot sitting in the base of his brain...and the minute it moves, he's dead. He could die at any moment.
He never bothered telling her this. He didn't tell her last night after work, either.
The statement could VERY well be true...he had a stroke 6 months ago and the only way she found out about it was 'thru the grapevine'...just like this news. Why does he keep such important things from her?
What am I supposed to SAY to her? I sat there on the side of her bed...I didn't know what to say but "I'm sorry"....... what am I supposed to SAY in a moment like this?
