I have to post this

I have never met Janet, or even posted to her if I can remember. But, I am completely devastated at what has happened to her husband, and am really emotional about it. I cant imagine what she is going through, and I dont know what I would do if it were me.

So I ask you all, please....

Pray for her and her daughter, and Keith.
Hug your husband, and tell him how much you love him.
And live each day together like it could be your last.

This has hit me hard, and I am not sure why. Of course I would feel bad for anyone, even if I didnt know them, but this one is wrenching my heart.

Hugs to all of you

Kristen

Chat Icon I know what you mean. I am sick to my stomach. While reading it, I stopped breathing and just sat there. Janet is such a love. She is a great mom, she was so excited for her daughter's first little dance.

Re: I have to post this

Hey girl,

I know what you mean. Sometimes when I call DH, and he dosent pick up his cell, and I think of all of these horrible things. I am a worry wart.

But then he calls or comes home, and I am relieved.

I don't think I could be able to handle it without completely losing my mind.

I pray to god to give Janet strength.

Re: I have to post this

I so agree and Im glad you posted this, because I feel the same. I mailed a check to her today before I even though about making my bills out because I just wanted to get it to her and I dont even know her but I feel so desperate to help her...and yet so grateful for what I have. I have been so depressed lately because of a medical problem Im dealing with and yet today I feel so lucky and blessed....

I have been thinking about it all day, I could barely tell DH what happened with the most recent update...

and just now I was wondering if Keith had any life insurance...and if he didnt...If theres something we could all pitch in and do to raise some more money....Raising her daughter alone is going to be so tough and the last thing she needs is to worry about money when grieving so badly.

The irony is that everything seemed on Janet's side. If something was to be won, Janet won it! A vacation, a tv., etc. Marrying Keith seemed like the most wonderful thing for her and her daughter. My heart goes out to her. She is a genuine person who deserved a great love story!Chat Icon

She is such a sweet person too. Back when I was going to get married, we were talking about first dance songs and she actually made me a CD and brought it to my house so that I could hear a version of a song we liked.

I was a complete stranger and she came over, that is how nice she is.

I feel terrible for them. He was so young. Chat Icon

It really makes you appreciate the people in your life.

Re: I have to post this

Like you, I haven't been able to stop thinking about her. My heart simply breaks for what she is going thru. I hope nad pray that no one else has to endure what she has had to endure this last week.
Like Red, this has made me VERY grateful for DH.

I know what you mean about being a worrier, I really am too. I can't imagine what Janet's going through. I hope she knows that she's not alone and that we are all thinking of her.

Re: I have to post this

I remember Janet from LIW, so sweet and caring and very giving. I cant imagine what she is going through and I am speechless. I havent been able to stop thinking about her and I told DH and he too cant stop thinking about it, probably b/c we are all so close in age and it makes you take a step back and realize the small things in life we shouldnt make into big things and live and let live to the fullest.

It's just so heart wrenching.... she is such a sweet woman... I don't even know her like that and I just want to reach out and hug her. I can't even imagine her pain right now.

She has been on my mind since she first posted that her DH was in the hospital... and I just can't stop thinking about her. I am definitely praying for her.

DH was at the gym tonight for two hours and shut his phone off bc it was dying...after thinking about Janet and her DH all day I was so upset and freaked out I was convinced something happened. He got home and I was so mad that he didn't call me. It is so scary you just NEVER know what can happen. Ever. Lots of thoughts for Janet and her family.

Re: I have to post this

I'm glad you posted this.
I've been basically staring at the wall when I'm not sitting here, reading everyone's messages to Janet.
I have never met them, but Janet and Keith have really touched my life. I only wish that I could do something more than send a check. DH and I are dealing with a bit of a health scare ourselves - nothing has made me realize what a gift our time together is as much as Janet and Keith have.

Re: I have to post this

I feel so helpless sitting hear just waiting to hear the inevitable. I truly can not imagine the pain she is going through and the fear of whats to come.
Since her first post I have done nothing but pray, pray for her, Keith and their daughter and thank God for what I have.
I don't know her personally, but my heart is truly breaking for her. I have moments where I just start to tear up. I wish there was some way to take the pain away for her, for her to just wake up from this horrible nightmare.Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Re: I have to post this

I cannot agree more with the feelings posted here. I am so heartbroken for Janet. I also remember he being so excited about her daughters dance..and how exciting it was to see her photos..

I wish I could just join in on a big group hug.

I am personally so touched by the love and caring of the girls and guys of LIF and Ron. I am truly blessed to be a part of this wonderful family. No matter what battles we fight, what disagreements we have, its so comforting to know that everyone comes together for love and support when it is needed most.

I will continue to think of Janet and her daughter during this horrible timeChat Icon

i logged on after work and saw the update and gasped... not being dramatic it just was my automatic reaction iwas somehow hoping against all odds he would pull through
.. I started crying because I remember back when she was planning her wedding. it wasnt too long after mine in 2004. She was so happy she met someone and wasnt going to be a single mom anymore. I, like you Kristen, am so sad for her and it hit me like a ton of bricks. you just truly never know.........

I agree with allof you 100%. I am the same way with my dh.


Honestly, I have been thinking about this non stop and I am devastated for them.
I pray Janet has the strength to get through this horrible time.
Sometimes I just don't understand WHY these things happen.
