huggs date twin… i am sending a prayer and good thoughts your way.

i think that you’re doing the right thing at this point by trying to be supportive but not pushing him to do something he doesn’t want to do. once you find out how the spinal taps go, i think within a few days you should really coax him into going to see his mother. especially at a time like this, she needs him there.

good luck.

This actually happened to my Future Father-In-Law a few months ago. They were able to drain the fluid though and relieve pressure and he’s completely fine now. I really hope that your Future Mother-In-Law is okay and that the procedure goes well. Hopefully within the next few days your Fiance will realize what’s going on and change his mind. Sending hugs and prayers your way!

Hi Miss Bubbles,

Please, don’t let the language barrier keep you away. Even if your Fiance won’t go, you should probably go and just sit with her, even if for just a few minutes (maybe hold her hand if you are comfortable with it or lay your hand on hers to let her know you are there for her). I’ve heard time and time again that only 10% of communication is verbal – the other 90% is body language. Just ‘being there’ for her whether you say a word or not will mean the world to her. Another thing is this – even if your Fiance doesn’t go with you the first time, I think he’ll see that by you going you truly do care and it will encourage him to go. In fact, maybe it will make him feel less awkward about it too – it must be sad and strange for him to see his mother like this and just having you there for him will mean so much too, even if you don’t say a peep… 

I will definitely keep her, you & your Fiance and the family in my prayers.
