He said he wanted to get updates on the OWs condition.
This is the real problem IMO. I like to think of NC not only as NO CONTACT, but also as NOT CARING.
Whether she lives or dies, wins the lottery, grows an extra breast or becomes a nun.....she needs to be buried in the past of his regret and remorse.
She is fishing, and he is taking the bait.

This would be a deal breaker for me. His reply to the sister should've been, " your sister's health is no concern of mine. Next time please call someone who gives a damn." NC includes head space...and if he's still in the A mentally, R AND your healing can not happen. Hopefully this is a glitch you can get over...there's been glitches in my R process too - and it took my making H see it from a healthy perspective to see the err in his thought processes.

Sounds like a pathetic plea for sympathy to me. Even if not.. Who cares? Why does your hub need to know....?
refuz: 'I like to think of NC not only as NO CONTACT, but also as NOT CARING'.........
Perfect!! Thanks for that..!!

Honestly, I am wondering if this is even true. There has been OW with made up fatal illnesses here in the past. I think it might be the second oldest ploy in the book (after faking pregnancy and then miscarriage)
Please, get tested for HIV again. Twice (6 months apart) is good. Although, her lymphoma could be from something else. I work in a cancer clinic. Most of our cases of cancer are NOT from HIV, but from...cancer. People get cancer. Good people, skanky people. all kinds of people.
It is NOT wrong to wish her dead. she intentionally inflicted horrible pain on you without regard to you.
As for your husband, no contact means NO CONTACT. No, he cannot get information on her. NO, he cannot talk to her. YOU are the priority. She is now nothing, and he had better act like it.

I would bet that 99.999% of us BSs feel the exact same way. Matter of fact, if I heard that the OW in my sitch had cancer, I would buy a bottle of champagne.
I'll drink to that!!
I am drinking now, just in case I missed the call....
I kid, I kid...
Seriously though, don't feel bad. I am sure we have all felt this way (((hugs)))

Really??? A remorseful WH shouldn't give a shit what her condition is. Not very remorseful now is he?
I don't care if she dies-I am disgusted with myself for being able to say that.
I would hope that she dies - I am NOT disgusted with myself for being able to say that!

HIM: 61 WH

in R 4 years and it's working but he is putting 200% into it (as he should) to make it right again.
The truth hurts, but I have never seen it cause the pain that lies do.

Early after DDAY, my wife gave me the craziest look ever when I told her that if POSOM ever got hit by a bus (karma- or otherwise), or fell ill, or killed himself (plz, plz, plz), I would throw a party. And I really would. I would have a raging kegger, and I'd probably invite his family and friends.
I keep my mind on my future/and my eyes on the sky/I don't really smile much/If you were there you'd know why.

I'm not saying tomorrow will be the same, but today i couldn't give a flying fuck about the OM. Don't think I'd feel anything at all if I heard he had cancer. It would just register as gossip and then pass me by.
I'm taking this as good news. A few months back I'd have thought something similar if not worse than you, so don't feel bad about it. It's natural to feel the desire for revenge or justice. It's adult to restrain from acting upon those thoughts.
