Does anyone know what has happened to Momof6boys? Or do I have the name wrong? I have not seen any post from her is quite a while here. If I'm in error on the name or you know anything about her, could you please update us on her. I used to see her here all the time, and she just popped into my head today for some reason.

Hi SE (Michael)...

Hey...thanks for the e-mail, too. I just got it a little while ago, and was going to e-mail you back; but then saw your posting here. Thanks for the thought and concern :) I really appreciate it.

I really miss being here on the forum! I have a couple of people I've met here that I do speak to regularly... and have become good friends with, which is a bonus. But I also miss hearing about everyone.

The main reason for my absence is just my health. I have several heath conditions - besides the pain - that have flared their ugly heads and have me pretty down again. Most days, it is all I can do to keep my head above water to survive the day. I never thought I'd end up with six wonderful children... and struggle so much just to care for them. I used to be "super mom" in the things that I did... now, I'm lucky just to be able and sit from the bed/couch and talk to them; read to them; and so forth. It's been a SUPER adjustment and one that I have to "reaccept" each day... or it mentally gets me way down. (Side note... as I'm sure I don't need to explain... but I do feel fortunate that I'm able to at least be there for the kids, and blessed just to have them... I hope that comes through, despite being frustrated in my limitations).

Anyway, my heart condition leaves me really weak... and I've found that even typing takes energy from my body. But I will try to be better about checking in... and please know that you can ALWAYS e-mail me!

Thanks again, Michael, for the thoughts... it really means a lot to me!! I've not been able to read to many posts yet, and don't know if I will, but it seems like you are going to have surgery soon, is that right? Take care, my friend :)
