Wayne, have you thought of getting counseling or joining a support group for caregivers of chronically ill? This forum is a great support system, but not quite the same as "in person" people who understand what you are going through.
My ex-b.f. came over to eat and exchange gifts yesterday, and it was very nice. It looks like we will begin dating again soon.
I'm expecting my sister and her family down from SC on Tues. I'm planning to make 3-Bean Chili; however, she said they would like to take me out to eat and save me the work. Since I make that meal in a crockpot, it's really no work. I will make it today and it can be frozen if not eaten soon.
I hope everyone else is having pleasant holidays, with no trips to the ER!
