    Did I ever mention that I love you all? Because I do! You're all the glue that makes this place stick together.

    I will say this. I do not wish my wifes injury on anyone. Having a house built in the 70's is not very good to have right now. Due to the tight turns and narrow doorways it takes all of us to move her around.

    OMG...may I just say, like @savemejeebus & @desertskybulldogs...I love all you guys
    and girls so much! So much 'stuff' being suffered, endured, dwelt with, surviving
    and moving forward too...amazing! Thank y'all for sharing and being so wonderfully
    honest, while my heart hurts for these things you've gone thru (and some still going
    thru) and I'm sad it's happened to such truly great people, at the same time, y'all's
    sharing has encouraged and inspired me. It couldn't have happened at a better time
    because Mother & I had such a bad day, my son's selfish, sh*tty actions depressed me,
    my house problems & expenses to fix scare me and Christmas is again, difficult. So...I
    broke down, I cried my eyes out...I just felt so hopeless, so sad...just didn't know WHAT
    to do about any of it. I felt scare about everything~no solutions to anything.Then I heard
    Steve Winwood & Eric Clapton (Madison Square Garden Concert) sing 'Had To Cry Today'
    and I thought, you know what...sometimes we do...we need to cry, to wail, to admit we
    feel bad, overwhelmed, scared...to admit, we don't have all the answers and maybe, admit
    our mistakes. Then...got a phone call out of the blue from Lisa...good stuff too, really made
    me feel better as we talked and this after talking to Tracey @ddnene and as I said, her
    attitude and things she said, in the midst of terrible suffering~ministered to ME! Then I come
    on, find this thread and read your 'let it all hang out' accounts and truly, I see so clearly how
    we are all doing the very best we can and even as we think we aren't, we are stronger and
    braver and better than we think we are and...we need each other and are so lucky we found
    each other! GOD be with each of us, help us overcome these things, gain wisdom & grace and
    may HE bless us with better circumstances in 2014 and each year thereafter! I love Y'all


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

The doctor she worked for was in critical condition last night and died this morning. My aunt's only son just died 5 weeks ago and my uncle just had major back surgery 2 weeks ago. I can't even imagine what she's going through mentally right now.

    Oh Jeannie, that's horrid. I'm so sorry...what is going on in this world with people shooting people! I just don't get it. I few months ago, a doctor was killed by her estranged husband in her office, just around the corner from where I live. It's sickening. I am praying for a little peace and comfort for everyone in 2014. Your poor aunt...sending prayers her way!

    it is not easy that is for sure. She can't get in our bed because it is too high so she is in her recliner for hours on end. I am working on getting her up and around every 2 hours like training a puppy but sometimes the pain is too much for her. Add to it that her case manager never ordered her wheelchair so we have to use office chairs to get her around once she is up on the walker. The doctors say the first week post op is the absolute worst so we are hopeful that things will start getting better later in the week. All I can do is thank the lord that me and my daughter are off this week as I do not know how we would do it otherwise.

    Oh Todd, sending good thoughts, best wishes and prayers your way. I am hoping things will get so much better for you all. I know it's really tough, but stay strong and if you need to vent or cry or scream...we are here.

    She's had a rough couple of months. I feel very bad for her. My cousin had pneumonia and it got really bad and he didn't go to the doctor. The way I understand it is that no one was home and he passed out and died. I think aspiration? I'm not completely clear. He was my favorite of all when we were kids.

    Todd, hugs to you and wife. That first week after surgery is the absolute worst. I've had surgery many times and it's dreadfully painful. Glad that you and and your daughter are off this week to help her out.

    Todd I'm so sorry… I hope that your wife heals up soon, and I'm glad that you & your daughter are home to help her out. Hugs to you guys… just come on here to vent/cry or both!!! Looks like we can all join the club… LOL

    Jeannie, I'm so sorry to hear about your cousin and what a scare for your aunt. I swear it's almost scary to leave your front door these days… sending prayers to you and your family!
