Hi All:

I spoke with Carol yesterday, she wanted me to put a post in. She wanted you all to know that she's moved in with her brother. Unfortunately things are going to smooth. Carol requested that you all keep her in your prayers, good thoughts, etc. She's having a hard time and can't get up the stairs where the computer is to come here and share with us.

So think of Carol often and send her many prayers and positive energy she really needs it.

Take care,

Hey Carol, What a mess you've found yourself in. Where in OK does your brother live? Are you any closer to OKC? Sweetie, I understand about stairs but at least I can still maneuver them, hard as it is on my knees. I can't imagine how hard it must be for you if you can't even climb up to get on the net, which is your lifeline to your support group. What are you doing to keep yourself busy? If you read, I'll send you books. Lots of them. You're making a real sacrifice so that you can get everything paid off and head to Arizona where the weather will be so much better for you. I wish I could send some dry air your way, and a one story house. Hang in there Carol. We're all here for you whether or not you can get online. I'm praying for you.

Love ya,

Barb, thanks for the update about Carol.

Carol, I can only imagine how sick and worn out you must be from moving. It must be really difficult to get up the stairs with all of the breathing problems you have. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs

Thanks Barb for posting ((((((Barb))))), I'm not gona say I hope you are getting better because I know the score but I will say I hope things are progressing in a good way.

Hi Rosie, Margie, Pat, Hippi, Connie, Dqueen. Thanks everyone for your kind words and encouragement. I've been gone so long I thought you all might have forgotten about me. The computer is still upstairs but I had the energy to climb them today so I thought I would come say hello to my friends.

My family is really giving me grief about my meds! It's not my fault I have to take so many. and yes if I am that bad time I WILL take an extra vicodin. I just want them to walk in my shoes for about a week.

LOL ok well I didn't come here to whine I just wanted to say Hi and I love and miss ya all terribly. I hope to get a computer closer or get mine hooked up in my room. that would be great! I have to have a phone line hooked up though. I'm not sure why since it's not dial up. oh well I need it for life alert anyway.

Patty I'm a little closer but not by much. I'm close to Enid. in a little town called pond creek. There's a hurricane headed toward texas so get prepared for aches and pains. love ya

you all take care of yourself.

love ya


God Bless

   Bless your heart! I'm sorry your having a hard time still. Hopefully, your brother will do something about the computer situation soon so you can get online more often. Hang in there and take care. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi Carol. If your family will let you run a long phone cord from another room to your room it might be a solution. Another option: if any computers in the house have a router that sends internet to other puters, all you would need is a wireless card for your puter. I hope you get hooked up soon! I know what it's like not being able to climb stairs. Love, Butterflake
