Devastating news

Hubby received a phone call this afternoon from a friend he has known since secondary school.

His friend's wife isn't expected to last until the weekend, she is only in her early 50's.

She was advised a few years ago to stop drinking but she was unable to manage this.

Her liver has now failed, there is nothing more that can be done for her.

She and her husband lived with her father, the two men don't get on.

So as from this weekend, hubby's friend will be homeless.

Hence the phone call, guess who he is moving in with, yep, us!

Oh Hester! I have every sympathy for the poor chap, but I hope he will soon sort out some accommodation for himself. You have a heart of gold, but in your one-bedroom home, how on earth will you manage? You are already feeling ill a lot of the time; your grandsons are regular visitors and now you will have a bereaved and very sad man to cope with.
Have a big (((((HUG))))). xx

It is very kind of you both to take him in - but I echo those above who hope that it will be a short-term arrangement for all your sakes. Very sad - people really are their own worst enemy at times.
