Really want to know? One of my DIL's had ACL surgery two weeks ago. She has a horse. The woman who was taking care of her horse until she recovered got kicked in the head by another horse and had part of her brain and skull removed and is still in a coma. (please say a prayer for her...she is a wonderful lady) My DIL is hobbling on crutches with my son to the stables every night after each of them working 10 hour days, to shovel the poop for six horses. I can't help them which makes me feel terrible. My other DIL had four ovarian cysts/tumors removed yesterday. My son, her husband, got a call from his doctor saying there was blood in his stool and he is scheduled for a colonoscopy Jan. 8th. This is the same day he quit his job and took another job(supposed to start on the 28th of Dec) that he wanted very badly...can't do it now and has to grovel for his old job back or none of this will be covered by insurance. Then I get a call that my other son (I have three) had heart attack symptoms and spent the night in the ER last week. Did a second stress test yesterday and found something...can't even think what its called...a valve or flap or something isn't working right. Except for the son with the 'horse' the other two are 1000 miles away and I feel so helpless. I can't fly because of Meniere's disease...so...planning a trip by car south through the blizzards of NY after Christmas to see my twin sons. Yes...I am in PAIN. But...I have to be there for my kids, and will be no matter what this &*%$ disease throws at me. So take that...stinkin' fibro.
Oh...and my husbands 12 year old grand daughter just spent a week in the the psych ward at Boston General because something not so nice happened to her at school...still not sure what the incident was because she won't tell anyone. I can only imagine.

I read the post yesterday, but I just couldn't respond. I don't know how much better it is today, but I will try. My DH's health situation is extremely upsetting, he has to go back to heart hosp for stent, but he is dealing w/ low kidney function right now and I'm scared. We are running from one dr to another. The med bills are coming in fast and furious. My sister is pulling her end of the yr crap as far as my mother and me - I can't deal w/ screaming. I have been cleaning and eliminating as much junk as possible. We may have to sell our home. My son is moving into his 1st apt at the end of the month, normal thing, but I will miss him. It was recently the anniversary of the loss of my precious nephew, I still can't get past that.
Those are the bare bones, I can't deal w/ all the details right now.
Then reading about all the sadness of our friends here, it just seems like way too much is going on. I wish we could just have a large, stretched out 'group hug'. It does sound like we need it.
I have been so tired and so sick to my stomach. I feel like I'm going through the motions. I guess it isn't any better today. Sorry to be such a downer. I will pray for strength for all of us.
God bless. Alice.
