Thumbs down I may be away for a little bit...

long bad story short:

My grand pa (84) slipped on ice and fell hard, shattered his right hip. In hospital. Is he going to live...still to be determined...

Than over the weekend Saturday night got a call that my Auntie Sharron (64) had a very bad brain aneurysm.....99.98% brain dead.

so sorry if I'm tied up for a bit.......

Sorry to hear about all his Todd. I hope and will Pray the best comes of this as possible. The Forum should be one of the last things for you to worry about, but can also be a good place to hang so you dont sit alone to soak it all in. I hope you understand what I'm saying. Use us and help as you can/need and dont feel a commitment. John

I find this place to be a good place to take my mind off things. If you need to talk Todd, you have my number.

Thanks guys for all your thoughtful comments.

Aunt Sharron....though she'* confirmed .2% brain activity she still moves around in the hospital bed and will even reach out with her hand to hold yours if she hears you talking by her. And even squeezes to.

Grandpa.....seems hopeful I think.

Thanks for the prayers and kind words....I'd do the same for any of you.

I think it helped last night to...actually slept 4 hours strait.

Todd.
