MK, glad to hear that your dd is doing better. Great news that she doesn't have to use the cane anymore. Hope the news from the ortho surgeon is good when she hears from him.
It is tough having to go thru "senseless" things. My adopted brother, who is 3 mos younger than myself, has had to be placed in a nursing home this past week. He has alcohol related deminisia (sp?). It has been very difficult. We cleaned up, somewhat..2 days..his little 3 room apt. Got 28 bags of trash out and just made a small dent.
Hang in there. Remember that we all love you.
