- He's worried about SIL and her baby (the high risk pregnancy)
- BIL got into a wreck and totaled the car on New Year's Day.
- SIL got the stomach flu and had to be taken to the hospital (again, the high risk pregnancy)
- His health is terrible.
Anyway, so I contacted the Red Cross to contact E, which was more trouble than it was worth. I think that service is really intended for people who you cannot reach another way, or very close family members who die. But he called his dad, which was a big deal and made his dad very happy.
I just hope this run of bad luck for the squirrel in-laws is done. I don't know if I can handle one more thing, and I'm not directly dealing with all this drama.
Edited to say: the last sentence sounds like I'm whining. What I mean is that all these events are stressful to me, and I'm not the one they're happening to. So I feel much compassion for my in-laws, who are having the worst year ever so far.
