    fred, be brave. LOL I know you will sail right through this. my sister is having knee replacement surgery next month. I guess aging affects your knee's more than I thought. I will say some prayers for you. good luck be prepared for a lot of therapy and getting out of bed the day after the surgery. keep us updated as you can. kimmie

    hi rose, I'm so sorry about your fall, but thankful you are ok!! isn't stroke recovery exciting? LOL interesting question cipeko asked, I too had my stroke in my bathroom, or at least on the the way there. the br is where I finally collapsed. I have you in my thoughts and prayers, that no further incidents set you back in your recovery. lord knows, none of us need that, we are trying to go forward and heal, not backward and decline. please stay safe and be well. kimmie

    she is adorable lin. you both are blessed to have found each other. I love the green eyed cats too. I'm sure you both will have many happy years together. sounds like she is responding to you very well. sounds like you solved the windows issue really well, yes I too hate not being able to problem solve as quickly either. but you did it anyway without having to pay for tech service. windows has glitches a lot of the times on updates. reward yourself with something, you deserve it!!! when I had to move from az, I had a hairdresser that I had been with for over 25 years. I hated leaving her, i, now in tx have not found a hairdresser i like that isn't very expensive. regis is real big here, but I'm not paying over 50.00 for services. shopping around for a bank, hairdresser, and dr is overwhelming for me. I've found 2 out of 3, but not overly happy with either 1 so far, back to shopping i guess. i wish you and jade many warm snuggles when winter comes.

    debbie, i too am very sorry for your loss. kira is free of pain and sickness now its always so hard for us to put our pets down. but they do depend on us to help them when they need it. you have cared for her well. its always hard to say goodbye. i have you and bruce in my thoughts and heart, as you work through this tragedy

    hi terry. i'm really happy you weren't hurt in all that mess. its great that insurance will cover it all. i know you and your family like to travel alot. but lets do it without all of the action, next time LOL i'm sure you would rather have fun on the trip than fighting fire.

    sue, i understand alot of what you are feeling. my hubby died also , not to many years ago, we had been married for 40 years. i too missed him and still do, remembering places we would go and things we did together. we also had a neighborhood Italian restaurant, we ate at alot and they knew us too, their food was to die for. they sold the business and moved to utah. we were devastated, but they did whatever they had to do. i heard they had opened another restaurant there. i'm glad you had a great time with the family. new memories being made. our hubbys will always remain in our hearts.

    jamie, i think you handled it quite well. people wanting to help is a good thing at times. to much help in the wrong way scares me and could make me fall. so if they don't know what i need and how to do it, i kindly tell them no but thank you anyway. they don't seem to realize that we have to move at our pace, carefully and slowly. you did nothing wrong and i'm sure she's not upset with you either for what you said. people think since we are handicapped, we must need help!! having a hold of your clothing is not going to keep you from falling and that is definitely not a safe way to help either. she is going to hurt someone that way i know you can take care of yourself. just stay away from her, please!! stay safe and well.

    oh lin, i am so very sorry for your loss. pets are family too. i'm sure you are thankful you were able to be with her and comfort her before she passed. she knew comfort in your arms and home. she was surely at peace when she died, knowing how much she was loved and cared for. since animals can't talk, they have so many other ways to tell us something is wrong and you did know what to do. its so very sad to lose a beloved pet. i swear every time i lose one, i will not get another, but i do and sometimes i over-do it. i now have 3 cats and 3 dogs. all rescues she is no longer in pain. she will always remain in your head and heart. i also wanted to tell you, she looks exactly like my 2 brother cats with the beautiful green eyes. i kid you not.
