Dear Sarafena: I just wrote out what has been going on with me for the past month and a half. For some reason, the computer, or vista, or something ate it. So, I am not going all through that again. The thrust of the matter can be summed up in, I can't tell if it's just my perception, or the world really is crashing in on my head. My Dad, whom I cared for in a nasty rundown wet mouldy old house for two years, and then moved to a nice rental house on the water, till spring , has a golf ball sized tumour growing in his head. He is not accountable for his behavior, he is not a candidate for surgery, he is too frail to withstand brain surgery, and allthough he's diagnosed with Alzheimers, they can't rule out the extent of the swelling in his head. he is currently in a nice, modern, free to roam, nursing home, just down the road from me and I can run down to see him whenever, siblings are circling like vultures, dividing up the silver and all, wanting a full accounting of every penny. Stepmom left Dad with bills taller than Mt. Everest. I had to find a fast buyer for falling down farmhouse, as Bank is nearing foreclosure. I had two major dental extractions, lost the rear end out of my car and got hit with a flying rock from a salttruck barreling past down the highway at 100kms. per hr. I have to be strong and find a way past all of this. Then I have no idea of where I'll land b/c I am responsible for all the old folks bills and business, so need to be nearby. We have ambulance bills piling up around our ears, but on the bright side, our neighbors have become our family (The Campbells', no kidding), and our family has become remote and unreachable. How's everyone else doing?
