On a final note, I texted the ex to see if she was going to visit Jr. anytime during the evening, and I received a text saying that she was in the ER at a different hospital. While on my way to evening Mass, I texted her saying that I was sorry to hear about him, and that I hope things get better.

I must be dense, Daniel--I didn't understand this. Your ex was in the ER of a different hospital for whom?

I had to bring my son to the emergency room last night because he swallowed his food and could not get it down all the way. He was wide awake, and stable, but I did not want the situation to become dire at home.

When he was being treated I called his mother to let her know what was going on, and lo and behold, I actually had a civil conversation with my ex

Don't you dare tell anybody else, and shame on whoever it was who was praying for me

I'm glad that it worked out all the way around! I'm sure it was a relief

"vows trashed" That is exactly the phrase I have been searching for to put my feelings into words for years. Thank you!

Daniel, I am so glad that you had a civil conversation w/your ex-wife and that you texted her and offered her comfort. As a woman, I am always careful to listen to how a man treats his ex and his children. It indicates how I very likely would be treated if he dated me.

How sweet it that of Daniel. The unexpected civil moments with your ex wife are wonderful. I had a similar
experience this weekend with my ex and came away feeling like I had an out of body experience!
Maybe you can build on this foundation for more positive moments with limited expectations so
you won't be disappointed. That is what I am going to do.

Good luck!

At the same time you have to be wary of individuals that continue to harbor strong emotional attachment to ex-spouses. It and can be recipe for disaster.
