WOW its been since April since Ive posted, tried to log in and it said error. Anyhow Happy its back - I was worried. This site has lots of valuable information - lots of stories . Dans not doing well - he's got some gastro intestinal bug, been to the ER couple days ago, followed up with his doc, he seemed to feel better for a bit and now he is suffering again. Seems like its always something- But thats no different than anyone else. I just wanted to check in. Oh the friend who's husband had a stroke, has had a pretty good outcome. Much better than Dans - so I am happy for them. He probably won't be able to work at his old job, but I think he'll be able to do some work and drive and maintain independence . Makes me glad and sad - I compare my world to theirs often and think - wish Dans outcome had been better. But I am happy and jealous for them. If that makes any sense-- LOL I really shouldn't complain - we have had many great things happen in the decade since Dans stroke. Many advantages others don't have , and I am grateful.
