Monday, Covid booster, very sad right now


Hubs and I went to the pharmacy on Friday evening because we thought it would be less busy and I received my booster of the Moderna vaccine.  The pharmacist insisted on giving me a full dose rather than the 1/2 doses most are getting as a booster due to the drugs I take that suppress my immune system.  I almost asked her not to and now I wish I had as I have run a low grade fever for more than 48 hours.  Very tired and slept most of the day yesterday.

We received some horrible news Saturday.  Daughter and I were out doing some Christmas shopping and as we were headed to the car she said "Mom get in the car I just got a txt from Sarah ( her cousin)and this is bad.  As she was reading the txt I looked and my phone and it was blowing up.

This is so awful I can hardly write about it.  Our family is reeling right now and we really need your prayers.

My nephew, (who was raised by my parents due to my brother and his wife's drug addiction) has two small children who had been removed from their mother's home because of her drug addiction.  My nephew had custody of these children and begged the judge not to return them to his ex wife unsupervised as she hates him and he feared for the children.  He was afraid that she would harm them in order to get to him.  He is remarried.  She was finally given 24 hour visitation unsupervised against my nephew's wishes.  He was expecting them to be returned at 5 p.m. on Thursday past.  Instead he got a visit from the police and the coroner.

This woman killed those two babies.  His only son who was 5 and his little girl who was 3. I cannot go into the details as they are too horrific, but I am in a state of shock,anger,and extreme sadness.

Of course the family is rallying, and this is just so hard. I expect the funeral will be at Mom's church after Thanksgiving. 

We are all in a state of blur, just going through the motions of life right now. My poor nephew has tried so hard and has worked so hard to give those children a better life and he and they did not deserve this.

Lil sis and Sis and I are just holding it together the best we can.  We know we need to be strong for our nephew.

  28. My sympathies to you and your nephew. It is so heartbreaking that someone could hate another person so much they would take the lives of the innocent children. I hope that the justice system deals swiftly with this woman.

  34. Unimaginable. Fervent prayers for all your family as you support your nephew.

  35. I am so so sorry. Prayers for your family. I can't even imagine how anyone could do this to those precious babies. Who ever ordered this visitation should be responsible for giving these children to a monster when he was asked not to. It sounds like your family is very close. I pray they draw together for support of one another. Take care.
