i am using you guys cause you understand. in the last 2 weeks i had to put casey, my 15 yr old bichon down.He was my best friend. My bipolar, drug addicted daughter is missing after a suicide attempt, my niece was finally put on the international kidney transplant list, my sister, who, just had a colon resection followed by a blood infection had a seizure and probably has brain cancer, they found 3 tumors, doc says probably more, cant operate. waiting for onc to talk to her. my brother is getting ready for a lung cancer operation. I had my follow up ct scan and will find out monday if it is clear.I am thinking this is the least of my problems. I feel great and blood work was good.
I am afraid to answer the phone at this point.
thanks for listening.j

Hey, you oughta' change your monicker to: "Lucky"...

There was this story some time ago, where it tells of a guy
with a dog that he carries into the bar, and relates to the
bar-keep all the things the dog's been thru.... Missing three legs,
no tail, no ears, feces dropping out continually, no teeth.... etc..

Bar-keep feels bad and offers a free drink, and asks if the dog
would like anything.... "Oh, and what's his name?" he asks...

and the guy says: We call him "Lucky".

Vent away.... we all do at times. You're safe here!

Best wishes for you,

That is more crap than any one person should have to deal with.

I am praying things get better for you and your family.

I still believe any day above the grass is a good day.

I hope you can find a way to breathe, relax and enjoy life, even with all the emotional traumas you are currently going though.

have a lot on your plate. So sorry you are going through so much. A quote from one of my favorite books "Feeling means your dealing and dealing means your healing." Just take it step by step one day at a time :)Melissa

Thank you everyone. I am trying to figure out how to support my sister. She has been through so much and is scared to death. I can't tell her everything will be fine. I guess the words will come. At this point I am just trying to stay positive and take one daying at a time. As we all do here,. But in all honesty my mantra of "everything happens for a reason" is wearing a bit thin.
Hugs to all, Judy

I'm so sorry that you have to endure so much. I wish I had some good answers for you but I don't. Somethings are just out of our control.I'm sending up prayers for you and your family members.

P.S. When the time is right, you may want to take a trip to your local dog pound. There are so many dogs that need homes. They can be such a great comfort. Sorry for your loss.

Thanks Karen, I appreciate you prayers. My avatar is Carly. We saved her at 3mths old. She is now a year. I knew Casey's time was coming and decided to save a bichon before he passed. it has helped a lot. She makes me laugh. we both miss him, so i try and make her laugh too ; )
Hugs, Judy

.....that's enough for anyone to deal with in a lifetime, much less all at once, Judy. The older I get - the less I know:)

I am sorry you are having to contend with all of this along with your own battles. I'm not going to be flippant and blow wind up your tailpipe - your plate is FULL.

You don't have to answer the phone - that's why they made caller id:)

Just one of my big ol' Texas bear hugs for you, young lady - ((((((JUDY))))))
