We don't know that he actually went into the brother's room.

He may have just gone to an area where the family and new widow were gathering. Or could have viewed him through a glass-enclosed wall., etc.
Likely, brother Robert was not conscious when 45 arrived.

Incidentally, Robert just remarried in the spring. Perhaps putting things legally right with the knowledge that death would soon come a'knocking.

I agree, Larissa. I resolved the day after election 2016, that I would not let him have the power

to occupy my life and energy in such a way to take my peace from me.

I've not become totally successful in that endeavor.
But, frankly, my family and those that I love and care for, as well as the rest of my life concerns and interests are more important.

Life is too short to let others take control of your feelings.
I'm way up in years, could just sleep away at any time.
He's not worth it.
I'd rather live my life without the misery of such a person in my thoughts.

Gen Honore' is a treasure.

He has clear, practical, reasoned answers to the problems posed every day by the Trump presidency and administration.
He is a true leader with a history of results.

I look forward to Dr. Jill Biden as First Lady and hostess. She is so gracious and warm and smart.

What a refreshing change that will be. She is such an asset to Joe.

I understand that she expects to continue her work in education.
That will be an interesting balancing act, but, if anyone can do it, she will!

I've given my postmen smallish Christmas gifts over the years - boxes of candy, cookies, etc.

A few months ago I met my mail deliverer at the door and gave him a jar of Planter's peanuts, and a compliment. He said, "I'm just doing my job." I told him, "You do it very well."
And he does do it very well.

The feast day of St. Clare is today; Clare was a friend and follower of Francis of Assisi.

She founded the order of Poor Clares.

Do not take his inattention personally. Most likely he cannot help his present condition.

My spouse, at a much younger age, became completely listless and disinterested in everything for periods of several months, then would almost literally rebound and we would then take off for trips for awhile, then the disinterest in life would set in again for months.

Everyone, including physicians, thought it was depression, and he took meds and saw a psychiatrist for several years; even had an electroshock session.

Long story short, he was eventually diagnosed with a vascular/brain disease called amyloidal angiopathy, for which there is no cure, and after many years in long-term care, died of the condition.
All very sad, as he was a good man.

Your husband is an aging human being, likely with conditions beyond his control.
Do what you can for yourself and your own condition, and try to remove judgement from his inaction and sleeping.

Still up - in Ohio- 2:37a.m.

Wish I had better night habits.
DU is my last stop before tooth-brushing, etc.

+ 1. I live across the river in Ohio and McConnell's ads are running way too frequently.

Thank the good Lord for the invention of the remote.

Even McConnell's ads get no space in my home.
