OK, here's my story. I married what I thought was the perfect mate when I was only 19. We were married for 12 years when we divorced - my idea. We have two beautiful children together, who are 19 and 11. I found out last weekend that my ex-husband is having heart issues. They still aren't sure what the issue is, and he's only 45. It could be blocked arteries, or his heart may be enlarged, no one seems to know. On top of that, he developed appendicitis, and either had surgery last night or will have surgery this morning for that. Now, while I probably wouldn't cross the street to pizz on him were he on fire, I'm concerned for his well being, as he is the father of my children. I wouldn't want them to lose their father at such a young age, even tho, my oldest for all intents and purposes HAS lost his father already, since his father hasn't spoken to him in over 2 1/2 years. All because my son decided that he wanted to come and live with me. I've encouraged my son to go see his dad in the hospital, but he hasn't. He's stubborn like his mother. I guess all I want/need at this point is for my newsvine friends to keep my children AND their father in your thoughts.
