My uncle died last night at 11:15 pm. I was asleep when it happened, but I woke up when my aunt yelled for me.
He just kind of puttered to a stop, I guess. I figured he wasn't long for this world when my aunt mentioned his heavy breathing when I got home. He hadn't produced any bodily waste all day, and he couldn't keep any food down.
He had liver cancer, but his pancreas and gallbladder were being difficult, and his kidneys were on their way to failure. Basically his entire system of internal organs had gone on strike.
We're planning on the funeral being next Saturday. It's just going to be small since he didn't have many friends, so it's not going to be at the church like last time.
Now, here's the possible good news....
I'll be in Minden for the funeral, but I don't know when I'm coming. I'm leaving Sunday, but the funeral is Saturday morning, and the wake is Friday night. Depending on how crazy things get and how soon I arrive, I may be available for shenanigans and escapades at some point.
I hope it's possible because I have no fucking clue when I'll be back. ..
Once I come back to Houston, I have to begin searching for a second/new job because what I make isn't quite enough to cover what will be my half of the expenses. Well, techincally, what I make is enough to cover my half of the house bills, but I don't get to eat or take the bus to work AT ALL. I need at least another $50 a week to cover that.
