The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Alix, our thoughts are with you, Ken and his mom.

My thoughts are with the entire family. We are with you all.

Hope everything will be good soon!
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Thanks all. I'm at the library right now as my computer issues are still unresolved. (Hopefully soon all will be well.)

MIL is still battling hard and no one really knows what is wrong. There is certainly liver involvement and things are very slow to improve. Pain management and rest seem to be the top priority at the moment. She is really suffering. Thank you all for your support, we need it rather badly at the moment. It never rains it pours!

Oh Alix, I am so sorry she is suffering. She must also be frightened. I can remember the scared look in my Mom's eyes when she was so ill. You just want to make it better and reassure them that all will be well. Tables turn. I hope your husband and family are holding up OK. My heartfelt wishes to you all.
Saludos, Karen

My sincere thanks for all your prayers and good wishes. You're good people.
Mom's doing much better now that the pain's under control...and is lessening.
She's sleeping better as well. I think she's now on a definite upswing, as the virus or whatever it was....is working its way out of her system.
Thanks again everyone.
