Too Many Sickos!!!

February 13th, 2011 at 08:26 pm

Is everyone getting sick at work or at home? Here for sure. DH, then DD, and DH (again) have a bad cold with congestion. Sometimes chills and sometimes fever. I have escaped for the moment. FIL is pretty bad, too. DH took him to the Dr. who gave FIL some antibiotics. DH has not gone to Dr yet due to sheer stubbornness (which means he is not that sick!). Visited FIL today and his voice is soooo raspy. He is starting to look very frail (he is 91). Fairly good spirits though. Hope he bounces back to full strength.

Update for Sunday: FIL is much better and slept more soundly. Smile

Here's a WWYD (what would you do) question: Someone I know has a DH who is an alcoholic with no job and not looking very hard. She is also an alcoholic but does not drink (on Antabuse) and is fairly far gone and a "great" enabler. They have 2 children. Her DH is so bad that he hides his drink of choice in water bottles (I assume vodka). Mrs. DH has stated that when the family was driving somewhere she took a drink of what she thought was water. That is how I know. Anyway, I just think it is horrible that this man does not value his family or anyone else. Yes, I know that this is a sickness. I told her that he does not belong behind the wheel of a car and could kill himself, someone else, etc. She glossed over my remarks. My question: Is there anything I could or should do about this? The chances are good that Mr. DH brings a water bottle every time he drives. I do not see him at all (I think Mrs. DH has told him my opinion before) and her only occasionally but they live in an adjacent town. Any thoughts?

    Having seen first-hand the results of drunk-driving crashes in the Emergency Room, I would mention it to a local cop... I really would. He needs to be stopped for a routine license check or a busted tail light, and arrested. The potential sequelae that this could lead to are such that he must be stopped sooner than later, before he kills himself, his family, or someone else. It sounds harsh, perhaps, but there is really no insurance that anything else will put an end to it before someone is injured or killed.
