Default Waiting on appellate decision is freaking me out

The MA SJC's self-imposed deadline for deciding my husbands case is Monday. We have yet to hear from them regarding a decision, or an order for more time. Im a mess, hes "doing ok" or so he tells me. We are pretty open with one another, but when Im having a hard time he goes into protective mode and so wont share his negative feelings with me. His case is weird. We were told by a very good appeals lawyer that he had a 50/50 chance at winning his appeal... the law is on his side, but "he" (my husband, his appearance, the crime etc), was not. IE: it will come down to politics. Thankfully, while we hope for the best, his usually very expensive lawyer has offered to take this case further if need be (though he knows we cant pay him). But still, oofff. I married him "knowing" certain things. IE: no kids for me, no sex for me, no making breakfast in morning with my husband. But then to have the possibility of the things one has chosen to sacrifice resurface... its both wonderful and so very stressful. Yourself responded to my post when we were first filing our appeals. Their post I still think about and appreciate. But f****k. Im a freakin mess. That is all.

Thank you. We received an order voiding their 130 day deadline on Monday. This is not bad (except for the stress, heh!). It at the very least means we gave the judges something to think about.

So, there is now no deadline for a decision? Or did the court provide a timeline? I know this has to be stressful for both of you Keep us posted!
