I do not understand

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

Princess is having surgery tomorrow. in 12 hour s to be exact. 12 hours from now she will be under anesthesia. Pardon me while I throw up a little, nerves.

My friends are amazing. I am always shocked and amazed at how wonderful they are. We are blessed. Everyone has been so generous with meals offers for babysitting.han.all of it. I am amazed. Thank you. Thank you. Just thank you.

Here is where I am confused: my friends and family have been amazing. However Brian and his family hardly even seem to notice this is happening. Granted his mother and father did not visit Princess in the NICU once or in the PICU. But their grandchild is having surgery, you would think the would want to be there. You would think they would want to visit.

I am annoyed at their lack of concern and annoyed that they are so well unconcerned. I acknowledge that we have not had the best relationship over the years and very possibly I have pre-judged them.

Is their behavior odd or is it me being over concerned?

That behavior is odd to me. I don't understand either. Maybe they'll surprise you and come through for you post-op. Maybe they just can't handle being that close to it, and need to step back until Skylar's safely back at home. WHICH SHE WILL BE. Because God didn't bring her through her preemie struggle, her life in the NICU, every medical miracle known to mankind...only to ditch her now. God has something huge for that little girl to accomplish in life.

No, It's not you, it's them. It's odd for grandparents to not want to participate in their grandchild's life. I can say this with authority because I am personally experiencing this on both sides. It is sad and heartbreaking and can cause a lot of bitterness, anger and unforgiveness and least of all an odd situation that is difficult to address.

yeah, they did not even call to check on Skylar. I am very annoyed.
