Hi Darlin, sorry to hear about
your husband. And, sorry you're a member of this club of patients and family no one wants to join. Nevertheless, glad you found us, for as Skeener says, Zufus gives good advice, and he's just one of many here who do.
I also join Skeener in the hope you'll continue to keep us informed on how things are going.
