I'm so sorry Star
Pom, I will keep you and your mother in my thoughts and prayers. Please keep us updated on how she is doing.

I can only please one person a day, today is not your day and tomorrow doesn't look good either
Star, I'm so sorry about your grandma's passing. I know what you mean about feeling at peace about it, though. My grandfather passed away a few months ago after suffering through Alzheimer's. I know it's hard, and I know you miss her, but take comfort in the fact that she's not suffering anymore. I know that helped me and my family get through it.
He would've been 90 today.
Stargazer, sorry to hear about your grandmother passing away.
I'm so sorry to hear about everyone's troubles....
Pom...you and your mom are in my thoughts...
femme....good things for you and hubby are right around the corner...hang in there!
JLuvs...glad to hear your SIL came through the surgery OK...wishing her a speedy recovery!

Stargazer - I am so very sorry for your loss.
Pom - I hope you mom is doing better.
to you both.
Well here goes -
My Dad had his annual stress test (he's 73 has had 2 heart attacks, is healthy, has had diabetes for about 34 years now) and it looks like he needs another angioplasty (he has 7 stents now) this is a man who eats healthy, so this means another trip to the hospital. Also his kidneys are only filtering like 40% same as they've been for years instead of the 60% they should be doing, except the 40% is like a per centage lower than last year? (I'm getting this secondhand from my mom, so I'll wait until I talk to Dad, because I'm curious- Don't kidneys filter 100%?) but anyway that's it.
Sorry to read that, Gabriel. It's so hard when you are getting information second hand. A person can live just fine with only one kidney (I assume that's 50% capacity) so the news may not be so bad on that front.

My pet turtle just died I know this doesn't compare other troubles, I just wanted to let it out. It's the only pet I've had in a long time, and it just died. It's so sad to just see an animal's body dead floating when you're going to feed it. I'm sorry, this really doesn't compare other stories that touch the heart, but, it stinks.
I haven't been in here for a while ... I just wanted to wish you all my deepest condolences for your devastating losses... I'm sorry I wasn't here sooner to offer my support. Hugs
