Wednesday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
Do you care for children (18 or younger)?
(own children, neighbor or friends, grandchildren?)

And sorry I could not travel both

Most of you know my answer to this one.... :)  I've got six boys - 16, 15, 13, 11, 9 and 7...and twin daughters that are 6 months old.  I got very ill during my pregnancy w/ my youngest son and that's when the majority of my health issues started.  And the girls were little surprise babies :)

My daughter just turned 20, she's at college, but still comes home to roost...
She has a full ride, but the IRS has to be paid taxes on anything that's not tuition...
So we owe on her...bummer....Why can't the IRS give us a break...
I do have three kitties now all under 3 yrs...so if they can count on here...

My husband and I will be married 17 years this June 18. We tried to conceive and we did, but I lost all four of them. Those of you that are new don't know, but I finally did a post on here a few weeks ago about lost our babies. My husband still wants to try again, but i'm scared to because I'm afraid that I'll keep losing the babies. I might not even get pregnant now because I'm 45 and you're less likely to conceive in your fourties and forward.

We do have the option of ......... to adopt. i can't think of what it's called. But I don't know if we would be eligible because I can't do the housework must less take care of a child. Don't get me wrong. I would love to have any child to call my own, and I would love them as my own, but I don't think it would work out.

We do have two cocatiels named Nelix and Snowflake. They're our little babies.
