You need a break; even with the mission you are on, it is a change from your everyday strife. Glad to hear you were able to get away by yourself for a change!

Nancy, you owe it to yourself to take a little time and breathe in and out and the world will still be the same. Relax and enjoy life you been in Drive so shift gears and slow yourself down, Dan will be alright with the doctor in charge. This visit should be a good thing to have done at this time. I know the feeling!

 

I feel the doctor will get to the bottom of Dan's health situation and have it ALL under control in due time. "Relax"

Kudos! Miss. I really know how very difficult a decision it was for you to decide to go. But Nancy I know you were so upset you couldn't be there for the family and now to be able to spend time with your Granddaughter - perfect decision.

 

You family and friends are in my prayers daily. And I know just you being there has been a blessing. Please do rest up a bit - you are going home to more issues - as you know. And thank you for the promise! Debbie

I'm glad you are able to get away and help your friend. Maybe it will do Dan some good also, to not have you around and see how lucky he is! I hope this time brings a little help to both of you... I mean, I know you are dealing with a sad situation, but I think being able to be there will help you feel like the old Nancy, instead of just the caretaker role that we are all on, that kinda doesn't have room for us, our problems, our concerns in life.
