GD it is not supposed to be.
Yeah, 5/8 too short. But trivial at this point. Something lost in the translation from Italian to English. It is going to be ugly to fix. But that can be fixed.
This can't be fixed. Parents are not supposed to have to bury their children.
Well, "Other Kids" but just the same.
As my two boys were growing it seemed that our home was a home for all of them. And so we wound with a bunch of "Other Kids". We had them at Thanksgiving, we taught one how to cook a turkey, we helped another buy a house, others bring our "Other Grandkids" by, especially around the holidays.
While my two boys are about 50, as are the Other Kids, we are still in contact with almost all of them. Today we lost one of the wives of the Other Kid. (Breast Cancer) She became one of the other kids when she was in college.
You can't believe how much it hurts. I truly understand why nature is the way it is and parents are normally / naturally spared from dealing with the loss of a child.
And now stepping up on my soap box, totally my opinion.
There are "alternative" medical procedures offered out of the country. The purported reason is that the procedure / supposed cure is not approved by the big bad ugly FDA. Well, there is common sense reason involved, the reason is that almost all of them DO NOT WORK. And the reason that these procedures exist is to drain the patients bank account. These clinics offer hope, but false. The improvement in the "numbers" is irrelevant as most of the numbers mean nothing to real US medicine.
All one has to do is to look at the bank account draining of Steve McQueen by the Laetrile clinics in Tijuana, Mexico to understand how and why these clinics exist. The worst part of these clinics is that they tend to keep patients away from legitimate treatment and from possible inclusion in medical studies that may do some real good.
OK, stepping down from the soap box and my opinion.
We're both too upset to cook. I'll go pick something up to go with my double, triple Jameson.
