Jen, I missed it at first but stay amazingly busy...so now I'm glad I'm not working, especially with this economy; glad to know I'll have a certain amount direct-deposited in my bank every month and don't have to be worried about not enough lines or being laid off. And I certainly don't miss the stress! I was an independent contractor the last 6 yrs. that I worked, so there was no way to know from week to week how much I would make.
It does sound as though your husband isn't doing well if he's getting morphine.
Feel free to vent any time and do keep us posted.
