Life and death get in the way...

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Riverbend Realty, Cape Girardeau, MO 2004008944

My husband has spent most of the time since Wednesday afternoon at the hospital with his Mother. She passed away this afternoon, so tomorrow we will be planning a funeral instead of Thanksgiving. Not sure I will complete this blog challenge...

I'm still working on my own recovery from bypass surgery less than six weeks ago, so I was not able to be at the hospital with him nearly as much as I would have been otherwise. We were only home last night for a couple of hours when the hospital called him back. Within a few minutes, he called me to say that his mother had worsened and was probably already brain dead.

I still do not have clearance to drive, so we phoned our adult children; our son to hurry to the hospital to be with his Dad and our daughter to come to get me. My husband and I spent the rest of the night sitting in his mother's room, watching her struggle with every breath. Her vital signs were stable for a while and then started deteriorating.

I'm completely worn out, so I'm signing off for now. My husband, who did not shut his eyes throughtout the long night and all day today, is watching a little TV as he tries to unwind.

If you are looking for a foreclosure in Cape Girardeau, Perry, N. Scott, or Bollinger counties, I am the region's most experienced REO agent. As the area's ONLY Fannie Mae direct listing agent, I list more foreclosure properties than any other agent in this MLS. I am among the few local agents approved to both list and sell HUD properties. Give me a call if you are looking for help with the purchase of a foreclosure property.

______________________________________________________  for Fannie Mae properties  for Freddie Mac properties for HUD properties (foreclosures that were FHA financed)


If you want up-to-the-minute real estate information, the only way to get it is to have an agent set you up on auto-notify with immediate delivery. Your listing information will come directly from MLS only when it comes from an MLS member. You willl not have to wait for the information to roll to those other websites, and you will not have to check multiple sources. It's free, so why not give me a chance to help you in your search?

NO OTHER SOURCE is as complete or as fast as your local REALTOR®’s source. This is not just an advertisement for REALTORS®--it is information about how the system really works.

So sorry to hear of the family distress.  But you can be thankful that she no longer has to deal with the trials and travail of this life that we all have to go through.
